Vacation Part Last

Derek is comforting Dan who got "yelled" at for walking too close to the curb.  He was scaring his mother, as were his older brothers.  They all walked more toward the inside of the sidewalk after that.

Tia, Connor, Kayli, Mom/Grandma, a random man.  We were on the Freedom Walk in Boston in front of a church.  Maybe the South church?  I think they said that Benjamin Franklin was baptized there.  It was a historical famous person anyhow:)

This was going to be a picture of a bunch of people lined up looking straight up at the walls of a tall building (like they did in NYC) but I snapped the picture too late and we get Dad / Grandpa in his hat instead.

Along the walk we stopped at a cemetery.  It was probably everyone's favorite point in the walk.  Shady, quiet, and interesting.  This is Dan with his Grandma.

This is an example of a common picture on a tomb stone.  Skulls with wings were common.  Interesting spellings were common too.

Derek and Jake examining a broken tomb stone.

I kept missing the pictures of Jake cleaning off the tomb stones.


Connor and Kayli

The side of Tia.
What you do not see in these pictures:

Well, it is obvious that you do not see the rest of our walk.  We went to an old church that had boxes for families to sit in like I read about in novels.  They were wooden boxes with doors and benches on three sides inside of the box.  We went to the public gardens and decided we didn't want to go on the swan boats after all and everyone wanted to go back to "Grandma's" house.  We went to a park that evening where everyone had a good time swinging and playing on the playground. 

You also do not see in any pictures the good food that was provided for us by Derek's parents and Diana and Bryon.  We ate well and were thankful.

It was a good trip.  Trisa has more pictures on facebook if you are her "friend".

I think most of Trisa's pix on FB were of the fun times in the travel van.
What fun times you had. Glad to see dad's BYU hat in so many pictures (I brought it out to him so I feel like I gifted it to him you know)

Loved the pictures! What a wonderful part of the country to enjoy! Thanks to grandparents who are good examples of missionary service.

Glad you had a fun trip! I enjoyed your pics, expecially the ones in Boston. We only went once and it POURED so I didn't get any pics.
