It was nice to have a pretty low-key weekend in Boston. The week was busy, but now as I look back I can't quite figure out why. We went to the library, the Children's Museum, Costco, and played at home. Same old, same old. The museum was pretty cool, though.
The weekend was great. Saturday morning I went and helped clean the church and then headed into Boston to see some sights.
I went with my friend, Kendell, to the top of the Prudential building (I'm pretty sure it's the tallest building in Boston) and had lunch. The view was incredible. It was a pretty swanky place and I felt ridiculously under-dressed, especially considering I went to this place immediately after cleaning the church, but oh well. The waiter claimed it's the best clam chowder in Boston, and it was indeed pretty good.
After lunch we wandered downtown a little bit and went to Faneuil Hall- The Cradle of Liberty. Apparently some pretty important discussions were had there and it's now a historical site. Kinda cool building.
Outside, there were a bunch of vendors and people milling around and there was this one booth advertising for the Boston Ballet where you could get your picture taken. It was really funny- there was an old Asian couple who kept going back to take more pictures. Really funny.
After that I met up with my friend Amy and her roommate and did a little shopping. In theory, I was looking for some good waterproof, winter shoes. Oops.. the only thing I left with were these tennis shoes. I just couldn't resist. I can just go to Target and get some rubber boots and wool socks, right? A much better deal.
Saturday night, I spent playing with Amy and Alexandra. We cooked yummy food and watched a movie and had a slumber party. Good times.
Sunday was ridiculously busy- I went to a Lutheran church service at 9 with Alexandra for a class she's in. It was interesting, but served to make me want to go to my church more. It helps me be more and more thankful for the restored gospel!! Then there was choir practice, the regular block of meetings, a munch and mingle, being home taught, practice for the Christmas concert, and then a musical fireside. Sounds like a day of rest, right? On to another week....
