Pappy & Uncle Ethan

We do love it out here in New England but I'd be lying if I didn't admit I'm pretty much homesick and lonely for family all the time. So, of course, I was giddy with delight when my dad and little bro Ethan squeezed in a weekend visit while mom was at a seminar. It was SO fun. Right before they got here Khloe surprised us by adding to her vocabulary: "Pappy."

First on the itinerary? A fashion show, apparently.
Then a train ride a few stations before we were routed back to the car because of track maintenance (we ended up driving). Khloe just had to hold on to those hand straps.
She COULD NOT be separated from Pappy.
Up to the USS Constitution. The oldest commissioned war ship. The hull is still original! Nicknamed "Old Ironsides" after a battle where cannon balls actually bounced off because of it's white oak/live oak/white oak layers. At the time the live oak gave the us quite an advantage as live oak could only be found in the southern US. "Old Ironsides" never lost a battle.
Then to Bunker Hill. You can't imagine how ridiculous I looked trying to get the tip of the monument and everyone in the picture, sprawled on my back on the ground... Lol. Well, success!
On our last full day we went to Castle Island for a beautiful view as we ate our fried seafood (yum!), swinging, and some rock skipping.
So sweet yet so short. Ahhhh. Well at least we're heading home for Christmas in less than a month! Hopefully we'll get our family fix then. :)
