Comfort and Joy

I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will
give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
Jeremiah 31:13

Rest of Labor Day Weekend

On Saturday we dressed in all orange to cheer on our VOLS.  We were quite the sight in Boston where football is an afterthought and no one wears UT orange. We are standing in front of the Bunker Hill Monument in Charlestown. We definitely want to go back and explore Charlestown more. The boys were on meltdown so we hurried through but Charlestown is a precious city.  We look forward to spending more time there.
On Monday we decided to do a Duck Boat Tour.  If I had not bought the tickets the night before and paid a good little penny for them, I definitely would have canceled that morning.  The boys were not in good moods.  On the way to the tour we lost Austin's blanket, Red Sox hat, and realized we forgot the camera.  Both boys were in foul moods and Miller was missing his morning nap.  But it was all worth it because the Duck Boat Tour was terrific.  Everyone loved it and was in a great mood throughout the tour.  Our tour guide was so sweet to the boys and even let Austin drive the boat on the Charles River.

After naps we headed out again to buy a new Red Sox hat for Austin. The blanket was thankfully found by David retracing our steps and finding it up the street from our house but the hat was lost forever. After purchasing the hat we stopped for dinner and ice cream. IMG_0980 IMG_0981 IMG_0982
It was a great way to end a wonderful weekend.

Glad y'all found another hat! That could have been bad! :)
