Acorn Street

I've lived here how long and I've never been to Acorn Street on Beacon Hill?!?  It's beautiful, quaint, and oh so New England.  It was the perfect place for family photos.  I feel bad for the people who live on that awesome street because LOTS of people take photos there.  One man walked out his front door and struck up a conversation with us and he was so nice (I was worried he was going to tell us to scram).  He inherited the home from his parents (nice! -- he said that!) and he said they raised their kids there and they would walk them over to Cheers to catch the bus to school.  It would be such a fun neighborhood to live in.  Acorn Street I love you and I will be back.

Hahn family photos

This won't be their Christmas card...

…but I love candid shots.

He was not excited about family photos

Max & Maddie

I met my friends' twins Max and Maddie tonight.  They are beautiful.  I got to babysit them for a little while (I haven't watched twins--the Passmore girls--since I was a teenager).  They are really good babies.

All is good in the world again

Almost.  There wasn't much produce to choose from and the milk and sour cream expire in 12 days but I don't even care.  Welcome back, Mar-ket Bas-ket.  #bestpricesinboston #wilsonfarmssellstomatoes

The Oregon Petersons

It was fun to have dinner and dessert with Kyle and Amy tonight.  #arlingtonwardfriendsareforever

TBT: New York City - August 2001

Robes met the Garcia family while serving his mission in St. Die, France. I met the Garcia family when I visited Belgium/France years ago. The Garcias came to America in 2001 and we spent a day together in New York City. Eleven days after I took this picture, the twin towers were gone.

And the complimentary upgrade to a seat with more leg room on both flights was awesome.  #iheartjetblue

Milkshakes at Midnight...

...with Susanna at Shari's in Sherwood.  We call that "live Group".

Oregon State Fair

It was fun but I won't lie; it doesn't even compare to the L.A. County Fair that we went to every year growing up.
