Sometimes you want to go....Where everybody knows your name, and they're always glad you came.

I love it when family comes to visit. Mom and Kari came out last Saturday, September 18 for a little visit. We started the trip off right with brunch at Freds.

After doing some wedding dress fabric shopping we went to Serendipity for dinner. Kari has been wanting to go to Serendipity since her first trip to New York, and we finally made it happen this time! I so love Serendipity.

We went down to New Jersey for dinner at Jeffrey's house on Sunday. We had a fun little train ride down there and then went to church with Jeffrey. It was a good day :)

Monday, we headed to Boston. Due to traffic concerns in Manhattan, Mom and Kari left for Boston around noon and I jumped on a train after work and met them about half to Boston. It was a fun road trip.

We spent all day Tuesday in Boston. We took one of the hop on hop off tours. It was nice because we learned a lot about Boston and didn't have to worry about driving in the city or taking the subway. After riding the bus for awhile we jumped of and had lunch at Cheers.

We ended up back on the bus and road around until dinner time. We ended up having dinner at the Union Oyster House which is the oldest restaurant in the United States.

We finished our Boston trip with a Red Sox game! It was fun going to Fenway to see a game. Sorry, I'm still a Yankee fan!

Dad joined us Thursday and became the designated photographer. Since I don't have his pictures I will finish this later :)


  1. Erika! I keep meaning to leave a comment here and tell you how jealous I am of your adventures in New York. I just got to go there last spring and love, love, loved it. Such a cool city. That doesn't quite sum it up.

    Anyway, I peek in at your blog every now and again, and this seemed like a good time to come out of hiding...(have I already?)...and tell you congratulations on your engagement and upcoming wedding! Wow, it's not far off! And London - that's amazing!

    Hope you get to post some pictures of that special day. It will be beautiful! Say hello to your mom and sis for me?
