Boston with Becca

Becca and I were able to drive 13 hrs (15 hrs for her, because she came to pick me up in Columbus) to Boston. We went to see her sister Karen, who is a senior at Gordon College, approximately one hour north of the city. It was an incredible trip - safe car ride with good conversation. Karen and her friend Lisa took us into the city - which was neat since it was the weekend of the Boston Marathon. I got to check off state # 16 from my "Run USA" goal (to run in all 50 states), with a beautiful run through New England forests and by a lake. We went to Karen's church, the coast, and more. Then Becca and I were the "special guest speakers" at her friend's bridal shower - apparently the experts on marriage and all it entails. Rather interesting :) Then........we got to go see Quelly at West Point!!!! We watching him do the Lunch Formation and then ate with him. Very fun trip.
Becca, Karen, and me at Singing Beach

Rockport, MA - how pretty!

Cape Cod houses EVERYwhere. Nicole would like that!

Lisa, Becca, and Karen - eating our food just outside a neat market with probably 30+
different kinds of food to choose.

Break Dancers - Bret was bummed to have missed these!
But he had his special weekend of rock climbing at the Red River Gorge with a friend.

Becca by Paul Revere's grave - which is in the yard of Park Street Church. This is the church my sister attended when she lived in Boston for a semester. She met her friend Bonnie there.

These tours were walking all across town - the British are coming!

Riding the "T"

This was taken at Karen's church - I really liked it.

On Gordon College's campus - in front of their chapel.
If you look closely 0 you can see Michael's head and eyes only.
4th row back, closest to the wall. He's the MAN.

Marching out onto the field for the impressive formation.
