Back from Beantown

As I mentioned, we left on Friday for a long weekend with my Grandparents on the south shore of Boston. Eight hours of driving north through lots of traffic...thank goodness for portable DVD players. The munchkin was good but his brain is fried from too much Elmo. My grandparents spend their summers in the house that my great-grandfather built in Weymouth, Mass in 1928. It's just down the street from the house my great-great-grandfather built, and around the corner from the church where my other great-grandfather was the pastor for many years. My grandparents went to grade school and high school together, then he went to MIT and she went to Boston U. and they didn't date and get married until they were into their twenties. Anyway here's their cute New England style house.

Saturday we decided to take the commuter ferry from Quincy across the Harbor to downtown Boston for lunch. My grandmother can't walk much, so lunch right on the Wharf where the ferry lets off was all she could manage. It was a nice trip. Here are some pics.

Sunday we went to church, relaxed, and then went to dinner at a great resturant on Scituate Harbor. We eat there almost every time we visit, which has been at least once a year for my entire life. There is a great view of the harbor and marina with a steady flow of boat traffic.

For some reason the pictures would not come through for me - just boxes with x's in them. Damn. I'll try again later.

Sounds like you had a very nice trip. Welcome home.

Hopefully Nathan won't be in Elmo detox for too long.
