Today marks one month since the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon.
I still think about that day a lot—especially since I was there, near the finish when the bombs went off. However, time does seem to help you forget, which can be a good and bad thing. I am no longer engrossed with the news updates and really have no idea how things have progressed after leaving Boston.
(Picture taken the following day while we were still in Boston.)
Yet at the same time I don’t want to completely forget about what happened, which is why I am excited to run the Boston Strong 5K Run tonight in Anchorage. It is a chance to donate to the OneFundBoston and connect with others who were affected and want to support the efforts.
In honor of one-month post Boston, I wanted to share some more pictures from our trip. These pictures were on our point-and-shoot camera, and I had completely forgotten about them until last week. So even though they were taken four weeks ago, I hope it is alright I entertain you with some more pictures from our trip. Plus, this little ol’ blog of mine is a diary of our adventures in our lives, so I do want to have these things documented as well. Hopefully you will bear with me.
The very next day after the Boston Marathon, Craig, Kristy (my sister), and I ventured downtown again. My sister had to catch her flight back to Minneapolis that night, so we spent the last few hours of her trip checking out a few more sights.
First stop, ice cream at JP Licks.
I can’t remember what flavor I got but it was some coffee/chocolate/bits of waffle cone flavor that was to die for! After no dessert for nearly three months, this tasted especially good!
Amazing food and good friends made for a wonderful meal.
We had the most delicious food at Henrietta’s Table, which had a contemporary farm setting. It was awesome!
I apologize for the poor quality pictures—a point and shoot camera and low lighting doesn’t produce the best photos.
Wednesday morning it was time to leave Boston and head north to Maine.
This was the house we stayed at which I found through VRBO. We had to stay outside of downtown, but we were able to save a lot of money. Plus it gave us a chance to be in more of a neighborhood and a chance to explore other areas of the city. I’ve used VRBO for the place we stayed at in Maui and Maine and definitely plan to continue using it in the future.
