In Boston Common just after exiting the T station near our hotel. We took the train from the airport - very fast and easy, not to mention that I love pretending like I'm hip and urban
Our hotel, the Nine Zero. Our first time here, though we've stayed at Kimpton properties in other cities - love their boutique hotels
We received a complimentary upgrade to a suite - hooray! There was a separate bedroom and a large bathroom behind me (i.e., not in the picture)
We set out to pick up Robert's bib number and race packet at the Marathon Expo
The expo was so crowded I couldn't even stand still long enough to get a decent picture!
We stopped afterward for lunch at Wagamama, a noodle bar that is a favorite spot of ours in London - their only outlets in the US are in Boston. It was good, though not quite the same as being in London - no surprise there!
Later in the afternoon we rode the T out to Boston College to see a cousin of mine from Atlanta who is a freshman there
Barron gave us an insiders tour of BC - what a fabulous campus
Afterward we met Barron's girlfriend and walked with them to the charming town of Newton Center where we enjoyed a great dinner at a local restaurant
Robert with Jennie and Barron at Union Street
Robert and me with Barron before we got on the train and headed back into town
Coming up next: a Red Sox game, Italian food in the North End, Race Day and the Freedom Trail...

I unintentionally contaminated all of the pictures on my blog when I changed my privacy settings on Flickr. I am working backwards to correct them all, but it is quite a tedious procedure! If you encounter a post with error messages from Flickr where the pictures should be, then I haven't gotten to that post yet. Please let me know and I will update it immediately. Thanks for your patience!
