we ARRIVED!!!!

After our arrival, I might have panicked for a little bit. :)  That night the city seemed so large, and our apartment seemed so LOUD.  But after I woke up, the world looked a little brighter. 

The missionaries and some other guys in the ward showed up to help us unload our truck.  They were so awesome, and we got it unloaded in an hour.  It was amazing.  

That afternoon we made it into the city!!! It was a blast to show my dad and O around for their first time.  We kind of had to do a running tour, but it was still really great. 

We ate dinner at Quincy Market (Fanuiel Hall) was delicious!

C really wanted his picture taken in the crook of Mr. H's arm...he thought it was super funny. 

Boston's Harbor

To end the night, we got canolli's at Mike's pastries, and they were AMAZING. 

That night Mr. H and I drove around in the moving truck looking for furniture.  It was HORRIFIC... Driving around Boston in a huge Penske truck is not a good idea.  It was dark, and the streets are windy, and it was a huge recipe for disaster.  We literally almost ran over a guy trying to cross the road.  We honestly did not see him, and it was so so scary when he started getting so mad at us.  That was the last straw for me and I begged Mr. H for us to get home.  Well, a few wrong turns and quite a bit later we finally got home and I decided I would never drive in the truck again. 

Luckily for me, O took the bullet and did the rest of the co piloting.  Thanks O!

The next day we made it up to Rockport, MA which was gorgeous.  I can't wait to go back!

The next couple of pictures highlight the stress of moving...

Boxes galore!!!
It was a blast to have O and my dad here...and they were such huge life savers for us.  They helped ease us into our transition and were such a blessing.  Love you guys!

  3. Oh my gosh... you moved there?! How EXCITING!! Of course it will be an adjustment, but what an amazing adventure for your little fam! I seriously asked Eric at least 10 times a day, each day we were vacationing there, WHY we didn't live there?!
