Downtown Boston

(should have been on bearskin neak post)

On Saturday night we slept at a hotel. In the morning we went to eat the continental breakfast. It consisted of muffins and a few apples, not what we thought it would be. We had bread eggs and bacon, so we did french toast and bacon in the room. The smoke in the room set off the alarm. (The windows only opened 3 inches so it soon became full of smoke in the little room.) When that was all over we head to church at the Cambridge ward. (where my dad attend church as a new convert to the gospel.) It was a neat experience to be there in that chapel. On to Boston and walking the freedom trail. Then run by Mike's Pastry on the way out of town and headed home. It has been a very nice trip. We are so glad the Domiguezes joined us. Lots of fun.

When DOm woke up at the hotel he came running into our room saying he saw a Oreo truck out side. We were sure he had had a dream and didn't realise it was in the dream. HE said, "come look!" He pull open the curtain this is what was there. A very happy Dominic!Out side the Old South Meeting House. (where Samuel Adams gave the signal to start the Boston Tea party and Benjamin Franklin was baptized.)

Camping and Wingaersheek Beach

This last weekend we ( us, Cesar, Heather, Pamela, Abuala, Wyatt and Yeshua) went up to Massachusetts. We arrived at 1 am Saturday morning, set up tent and slept. (well as long as the kids would let us.) Then breakfast where I introduced the Dominguezes to a Damiano tradition of fritter pancakes. (You cook the bacon first and then pancakes letting them soak up the bacon grease and friterize!) Then the campground manager was talking to us as we packed up and told us of a beach 5 mins away. He had vouchers for a discount and talked up the beach, "it the best beach on the haba (harbor)". So we checked it out. OH my, I think it is my fav. MA beach. To bad it was so windy. (see pix) The cooking crew!
Abuala and Taylor. Taylor's first camping trip.
