Comfort and Joy

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

Day in Boston

While we are on the road I thought I would have some blog posts ready to keep you entertained (totally kidding...I know my blog is not that entertaining but I wanted to make sure I did these posts before life in Memphis got crazy).

This was a beautiful Sunday after church that we spent in the Boston Commons and Gardens.

We first stopped at the food truck in the Commons and enjoyed an ice coffee and egg sandwiches.

We then spent some time throwing pennies in the fountain.  Miller always hordes his pennies and refuses to throw them.

Taking a picture with my sweet boy.  We tried to get Miller to take one with us as well but he wasn't interested.

He was hiding behind the bench instead.

We finally got him in the picture but he obviously wanted nothing to do with it.

I tried about everything to get him to smile.

Austin has a slight obsession with sticks and rocks.  He even asked our packers to please pack his collection of rocks and sticks...sweet guys did it.

This is a view we see often of Miller.  Him below us asking to get "up".

We spent a little time on the carousel.

Afterwards the boys and I had a race through the Commons.  IMG_7090 IMG_7094 IMG_7098
David took some pretty pictures of the surroundings.

One of the things on my bucket list was riding on the Swan Boats.  So glad we did.  It was a great experience.

It was a wonderful way to spend a Sunday morning.  So thankful for precious days like this one.
