Lucky me. I got to have my sister and her husband come visit this weekend while my boys were camping. They got in on Saturday morning, Mr. H and C got back on Sunday, and then they left early Tuesday morning.
I have to say, having two kids is A TON easier when there are four adults. :)
Saturday their flight was delayed for 3 1/2 hours! That was a bummer, but I had a really relaxing morning, just me and T. It was so great to see them! We had lunch, and then took the bus into Harvard Square. We toured Harvard, which was really pretty, but super busy, and we couldn't figure out how to get into any of the buildings. Oh well.
We then went into some of the shops, which was super fun. We hopped onto the T and headed into Kendall Square, where MIT is. I had never been here before, and was pleasantly surprised. It was really quiet and CLEAN! MIT was fun, and we saw some cool buildings. We ate at the BEST restaurant, called the Pleasant Toast. It was so so good! Things like mango sour cream and strawberry habanero dipping sauce and things. We got back home and had a nice time hanging out.
Sunday we had a lazy morning and then headed to church. After church, J gave me a photography lesson, and then we headed to Mt. Auburn cemetery. Mr. H and C met up with us there from the camp out, and we had a fun time walking around.

That night we played Mario Kart (thanks L for being a good sport), and played another fun game they had given me for my birthday.
Monday morning we got up and headed downtown. Boston is so pretty, and it did not disappoint. We enjoyed the commons, and then made our way into North End. We got the traditional cannoli, and then wandered for a bit and found lunch at Regina's Pizzeria. This had some of the BEST pizza ever. We made our way back to the Commons, and Mr. H and C went home for a nap. We explored Beacon Hill and Back Bay, and wandered into Newbury Street and the Public Gardens. It was really nice. We got home, and our friends had a BBQ we attended, which was delicious. That night some more gaming went on, and we had great conversations.

I am so lucky to have such a great family, especially a sister. She and J are a great couple, and they were so amazing supportive. I felt like I had such a relaxing weekend.
