The Breakfast of Champions

Dan Boston

After a rather decent night sleeping (my cold seems to be slowly waning), I was woken up by the combination of light entering the living room (lots of windows with no shades), and the generally loud ruckus my nieces make when they wake up. Early. Managed to stay in bed long enough to feel somewhat rested because I got up. My little sister and parents were heading off to Provincetown for the day, so I went with my older sister …

Bike Ride / Martha's Vineyard

Dan Boston

Went for a bike ride with my dad around midday. It was gorgeous weather, and we biked about 3 miles to the ocean. I forgot my camera. Oh well. After lunch, we went to the bus stop and picked up my older sister and brother-in-law who had spent an extra night in Boston, and then we headed to Wood’s Hole. From there we took the ferry to Martha’s Vineyard – we were going there for dinner at “The Black Dog” …

Cape Cod

Dan Boston

Today we headed down to Cape Cod. Everyone was pooped out by the time we got down there in the early afternoon, and most people went down for a nap. I am catching a cold. Not fun.

Yael's First Birthday / Andrew & Annie's Wedding

Dan Boston

Today is Yael’s first birthday, so to celebrate we had a bunch of family and friends over for brunch. Some people couldn’t make it, as we had a family wedding to attend that afternoon in Groton.  It was a nice brunch, though Yael didn’t “destroy” the cake we had put in front of her.  So much for that photo op!   My cousin Andrew was getting married, and the event was taking place in Groton, somewhere northwest of Boston.  The …

Ear Plugs

Dan Boston

I forgot my ear plugs in Los Angeles. Oh man, do I wish I had them here.

Boston from the Air

Dan Boston

When flying into Boston the other day, the weather was really great. I took a few shots from the plane as we went flying over Massachusetts. While I could see all the way down to Rhode Island and Connecticut, my point-and-shoot didn’t get a good shot of the visibility. (But it was quite a nice view!) I did, however, get a few shots as we were going over Boston to line up for our approach to the airport. (Click for …

Loud

Dan Boston

It’s great seeing my nieces – so much fun, but oh boy are they a handful.  And loud. Here is Yael, eating and screaming: And here she is playing. And screaming. And no, she’s not crying. She’s just…. screaming.

And Nap I Did!

Dan Boston

I managed to hold off on napping until around 4:30pm or so.  I played with my nieces (we went to the playground) and took my sister to lunch.  Started to fade around 4pm.   At 4:30, I konked out.  Then I woke up at 9:30 when my brother-in-law thought I had enough sleep.  Hmm.  I missed the high school alumni softball / BBQ event I had planned to pop by, and missed dinner.  And my nieces are sleeping now, and everyone …

Finally Arrived

Dan Boston

After an uneventful flight which took off from Los Angeles around 11:30 (8 hours late), we finally arrived in Boston at 8:30 – 8.5 hours after out original scheduled arrival time. Now I am at the baggage claim, waiting for my bag, and then I take a cab to Newton! I managed to get about 4 hours or so of sleep, so I will probably need a nap later today.
