Weekends are for memory making,
relaxing and enjoying quiet moments of our days.
If you would like, please share your weekend moments
in the comment section with a link to your blog.
Guess where I was? I don't know about you but jetsetting and being home over a two day weekend is tiring. We left on Friday to take our son back to his apartment in Waltham, MA.
He lives near a little park around the river and the geese were very tame. I loved walking the walk he walks to get fresh air and being outside.
Friday night we shopped in Cambridge (love the vibe in this town) and had dinner at Mr. Bartley's. My husband said "let's do a selfie" and the kids tried to pretend to not be at our table....that's fine, we were having fun.
Saturday we spent the day at the Museum of Fine Arts. We were there for four hours and did not see everything. I loved the Hokusai exhibit the most (and lunch). Just knowing that I am within the walls of art history and everyone else in the museum is there doing the same thing as me leads me to love human nature. Preservation of art and artistic expression is beautiful. I see what the artist saw when they created their piece, many of them not knowing if they will be "famous". How cool is that?
Reflecting on my reflection while waiting for my family.
We left the museum and traveled to Quincy Market and Feneuil hall Marketplace. We finished the rest of the freedom trail we did not do in October. Lots and lots of walking.
I had a fun time in Boston. The highlights (and lowlights)
:: street performers :: parking garages that cost a dinner! :: beautiful weather :: yummy food :: sturdy walking shoes to get me through the day :: hotel! :: breakfast included! :: quiet car rides :: driving in the city is not fun :: coming home to Frodo, my country life, and the quiet ::
How was your weekend?
Boston is an overnight stop for us later this summer....hoping to get to the art museum this year. (Last year we went to the Gardner Museum.....a must if you haven't been!) sounds like a GREAT weekend (and loved the selfie!!!.....did you have one of those stick things or just long arms?)ReplyDelete
no stick, just long arms :)Delete
I hope to get to Boston soon to visit my daughter. I really have to get to some of the museums this time. So glad you had a good time.ReplyDelete
What an amazing weekend Karen and you look so happy which makes me happy. I simply love the American Indian statue and wouldn't mind having it in my yard.ReplyDelete
There really is no place like home is there?
Karen, the picture of you and your hubby is soooo good! It really shows how happy you are and how much you are enjoying your time. I have never been to Boston, but it does sound like a wonderful place to visit.ReplyDelete
i haven't been to Boston since our highschool field trip. What a wonderful place to spend your weekend...I'm sure your son is already missing both of your and your husband's smiling faces !!!ReplyDelete
The Freedom Trail is fun to walk down! Glad you were able to go and hang out there with your family. But I like your last comment, too: coming home is always wonderful! Have a wonderful week :)ReplyDelete
I love the photo of you and your hubby...you guys look so happy. Looks like you had a wonderful weekend. Enjoy being home, and the week ahead.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a wonderful weekend. The selfie made me smile, you certainly look happy.ReplyDelete
One of the best parts about leaving is definitely the coming home :0)ReplyDelete
Ours was a weekend of unexpected birthday cakes!! http://adeolainwonderland.blogspot.co.uk/2015/06/weekending.html
I am so with you on the art museum. They are my favorite indoor places! Awesome selfie. It's so fun embarrassing the kids.ReplyDelete
I had a lovely weekend: http://caffeinegirlcreates.blogspot.com/2015/06/weekending.html
Love your selfie! That is harder than it looks to get a good one! :-) Boston is so much fun, we hope to go back there one of these days, but I'm like you, always happiest when I'm home!ReplyDelete
We went to Boston last September and loved it. Especially the MFA. I never got chance to do all my blog posts about it, but I have all the pictures so sometime I will get to it! I am so glad that you had such a great time and enjoyed your weekend! xxReplyDelete
Love your selfie! And your pics of Boston! And I, too, am happiest at home! Barbara xxReplyDelete
What you said about the art museum and human nature ... funnily enough I left a similar comment on another blog just now. It's a wonderful feeling isn't it, recognising, I think, that we all share a sense of possibility.ReplyDelete
Love the selfie, too right, they're fun :)
Boston is one of my favorite cities to visit as there is so much history and art. Thank you for sharing your weekend and for taking the selfie! I had a quiet, calm, peaceful weekend but had many different meetings with friends. It was a weekend of friendship and love and I am keeping it all in my heart.ReplyDelete
how lovely! Sounds very busy but very nice!ReplyDelete
very much like yours! :) Mister and I took our first selfie this past week! In a restaurant much like you. I feel like we have just been through a whirlwind of activity on vacation. Now, to get some rest!? LOL! Would love to visit your area in the fall!ReplyDelete
Sounds like you had a great trip.
Sounds like we missed a whole lot in Boston and the area when we were there for our grand nephew's funeral service. Yesterday was our first "normal" Sunday in over two weeks, and it felt great.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a great weekend spent with your favorite people! Here's a few words from my Sunday evening:ReplyDelete
So good to read about your trip to Boston (I love Beantown).ReplyDelete
(and I love that your husband wanted to take a selfie!)
What a special weekend. My included shopping and time with friends and knitting and cleaning house... and the list goes on. Hope your Monday is going well....ReplyDelete
Yours looks good...love the selfie...you make a handsome couple. They are the best weekends when our children are involved.We had visitors and things didn't quite go to plan but it was good to see them and hope next time will be even better.ReplyDelete
Have a great week,
It looks and sounds like you had a wonderful weekend! The selfie is great! I love getting away for the weekends too but there is something so nice about coming home.ReplyDelete
Our weekend: http://throughourgardengate.blogspot.com/2015/06/weekends.html
What a great weekend, Karen! I love Boston, my oldest daughter attended both BU and Harvard and I always enjoyed visiting her. Our weekend was spent mostly with family as well; our daughter Kate is in New York for a few days on business so she flew in early to spend the weekend with us. On Sunday we drove her back to the city and we spent the day in Brooklyn with our middle daughter. Lots of fun!ReplyDelete
so happy that you were with your daughters, I bet that made it an extra special weekend!!Delete
Looks like you had a fantastic weekend!!! I've never been in that area but it looks absolutely gorgeous.ReplyDelete
Lovely weekend. So man great statues. Here is mine: http://blog.rippleandsway.com/2015/06/impromptu-camping.htmlReplyDelete

Your weekend sounds like it was wonderful...love the selfie, what a good looking couple you are : ) The fine arts museum would have been on my agenda too! I hope you are having a great week so far? xxReplyDelete
Sounds like the weekend was a whirlwind! Fun, but a lot! I am scared of geese and swans, but those look cute. However not as cute as you and the husband! Love that photo!ReplyDelete
Karen, I loved reading about your weekend in Boston. It sounds as though you all had a wonderful family time there. LOVED the selfie. ;) And you reflecting on your reflection! Glad you had a great weekend.ReplyDelete
