TBT: Chuck's outdoor birthday dinner on Rubio Ave.

Hot dogs and lemonade and I think I spy some green jello.  #pattonmemories #hisbirthdayisthisweekend #greenjelloforever #whitetrashish #amitheredheadedstepchild


I'm in charge of a luncheon today and this is the view.  #MITprofessoremeritus #MIT #bostonfromcambridge

The moon

I just walked into Lexington Center to return some library books (and get exercise minutes for GetFit@MIT) and passed a woman walking a dog.  I was slightly annoyed because her dog was getting close to me when she happily said, "Did you see the moon?!?"  I quickly said, "Yep" and kept walking.  A few minutes later I remembered that my mom loved the moon and often asked me (over the phone and in person) if I had seen the moon.  #pattonmemories

Happy 18th Birthday, Emma!

Happy Birthday to my funny, smart, delightful and brave niece!

I was the guest for dinner with these cute little Guests tonight. 

MIT Glass Lab

I got to visit the MIT Glass Lab today and one of the instructors said these are the four tools you need to make things.  I like this mini pumpkin patch.

Dinner guests

My friend Carolyn reminded me the other day that her cousin from Inkom, Idaho was running the Boston Marathon.  I asked if they would like to come for dinner (and I was OK with 11 guests)!  It was a treat to have them over after church.  #cookingforacrowd #moreisbetter #fracturedtacosfruitsaladandmintbrownieswereonthemenu #anycousinofcarolynisafriendofmine

A visitor

Sister Layton was visiting our ward today and came to Young Women.  She is on the YW general board and it was a treat to have her share some thoughts.  #arlingtonwardyoungwomenareawesome

I asked my friend if he would fix my bike.  Turns out it just needed air in the tires.  #embarrassed #soiwentforabikeride #Lexington

TBT: the Slip Sisters

Before the dance and before dressing for the dance.  I'm pretty sure the slip photo was my idea.  Apologies to Linda, Loralee, Ann and Karen for putting this out on social media.  #easiertoaskforforgivenessthanpermission #heritagehalls #BYU #msmithhallapartmet142 #preferencedance #myfriendhelpedmemakemydress
