(the happy couple)
Our friends Zora and Addie got married this weekend in a lovely ceremony in Boston, so we flew up there for a long weekend. We stayed with Erica's friend Erin, who slept in a sleeping bag, despite our protests, so that we could use the one bed left in her temporarily roommate-less apartment. Thanks, Erin, you rock.
The wedding was beautiful and tons of fun, with gorgeous river views, quality Quaker silence, a burrito bar, cupcakes, a riotous game of trivia, excellent music, really nice people, and, of course, lots and lots of love. In addition to seeing Erin, Addie, Zora and all the wedding guests, we also had drinks Kevin, dancing at the Hong Kong with our friend Fitz, man-brunch (a new experience for both Erica and Rory) with Fitz, Neel and Ava, and mini-golf with Matt, April and Lily. Lily seems to be off to a great start in the sports department - even at barely five months she can already hold a putter, and she partnered up to great effect with Matt, lending balance, a keen eye, and unshakable calm from her snazzy harness on Matt's chest. Is there any other possible explanation for how a devoted desk-jockey like Matt beat out the entire field at putt-putt?
Also, thanks to the indulgence of the Sithers, Rory (and Erica) had their first exposure to Five Guys burgers. Nobody's quite sure how this place took such a hold on Rory's imagination, but he sometimes seems to talk about it even more than Dairy Queen, although he had never been there until now and only happened to hear about in a passing reference on an NPR podcast. Anyway, they were good burgers, plus you can order online if you want and avoid any sort of human interactions beyond snatching the greasy bag away from an anonymous counterman. (Incidentally, for those in the Boston area who have been drooling and jealous at all these discussion of Dairy Queen, there is one somewhere way up north, between Swampscott and mini-golf. That's specific enough, right? Just follow your nose...)
Tomorrow we're off for Mexico. We don't get in until late at night so it may be a few days before an update. We are finally on Skype though, so feel free to look us up.
