Our date night

Another fun-filled day!  Today, I actually woke with a sore throat and ear ache, I think from the wind up here. The weather was beautiful till today with a cold front moving in and actually a little light snow flurry a bit north of us.  Here is my finished sampler A Sweet View by The Sampler Girl!  

I couldn't have described Boston any better myself. 

Here is another sweet hubbie went shopping and came back today with this hat to go with his new pipe!  Is that pipe long enough or what?   LOL

He looked quite European with his hat there.

The Lobby is full of beautiful tulips

By 5pm we were heading out on the town.....a rainy cold night on a trolley tour.
Hayyyyyyy  in my Southern voice here......

During the ride they left us off at Cheers for a quick drink and food.

Where nobody knows your naaaaaaaaaaamme...........

We had lots of fun!  I forgot my sore throat and earache.

We actually met another couple from the area and caught up a great conversation about the New England area vs. the Georgia area of the US. 
I'm definitely not a beer drinker but they introduced me to a small taste of Samuel Adams was  a sweet tasting beer.  Quite tasty with our wings and chips!

Note to self:  Don't drink a beer and hop back on a trolley car........

although here is BodyGuard waiting on me at the lobby.

Evidently it made me hit the women's restroom quite frequently....LOL

And I had to pack all my shopping tonight and it actually fit. I couldn't resist this pair of shoes from Ann Taylor. Oh how I love shoes.  A trip is not a trip without bringing home a pair of shoes from the big city!!!!!

We are very tired and heading for another night of rest. Tomorrow may be a challenge at the airport as their are delays up here from the International flights being all cancelled in Europe due to the volcano today.
I caught a little bit of the CNN news and it looks to be a mess for travelers over there. Even the military is having to fly wounded soldiers here instead of Germany.

The Red Sox played tonight and got rained out. We saw the field and the trolley tour guide said a ticket is 400-750 a piece.  WOW!
Needless to say, I will never attend a Red Sox game.

The hotel is quite busy tonight due to the weather and the game I guess, plus being a Friday night.

See ya soon back in Georgia!!!!
