Boston!

Where have I been you might ask?! I was in Boston for a conference since Saturday...what an amazing city! We got in on Saturday afternoon and were able to spend a little time shopping and going out to dinner. Here's a photo of our hotel at night - the Boston Park Plaza. Nice hotel, but also pretty expensive - $170/night!On Sunday and Monday, we made it to more sessions and out for a little more shopping. Here's the Boston Commons and the start of the Freedom Trail - a 2.5 mile walking route through Boston pointing out many historical places.
We didn't have too much time so we made a stop at Faneuil Hall where we saw these kids performing.
Monday night was an off-site event at the New England Aquarium. I have to say that I wasn't all that impressed with the aquarium itself. There just wasn't much to it.


Tuesday was filled with sessions and a final gala dinner. Here's Tracy and I at the dinner.

The group we hung out with - Illinois State University, Brenau University, Duke University, Wake Forest University, Georgia Institute of Technology, and Trinity University are all represented. Playing Left, Right, Center in one of the suites. This game is fun if you have never played and so easy. All you need is three quarters and the dice.
There is so much to do in Boston, I am hoping to be able to go back. I'd love to get to Fenway Park, the Sam Adams brewery (okay, so this is really for Jason!), and just tour around a little bit more.
