There was plenty of shopping, eating ice cream, and talking and catching up. We actually talk quite a bit on the phone since it is super cheap for them to call us (a 45 minute phone call is usually less than two dollars. Imagine!), but nothing beats a long conversation over an ice cream cone, a cup of chai, a walk on the beach, a ride in the car... etc...
Here are a random assortment of pictures to recap the time.
Since she was commuting from Essex into Boston every day, my parents and I took her on a dry run of the bus and subway routes she'd be taking into the city.
Kyalo was excited for his first train ride
The next day, I gave her a little tour of Essex...which took about a minute, and then we went to Gloucester to walk along the ocean. It was a cold, windy day, but clear and beautiful.
is she enjoying this?
I would love to see the inside of the house
The highlight of the tour was, without a doubt, Nor'East Cleaners my dad's dry cleaning business. Sadly it was closed being Sunday, but we got this picture anyway.
Well, this ends the first weekend she was there. I have some more pictures and stories of what we were up to in MA to come. Stay tuned!
