The skies were beautiful both to and from Boston. There was one very strange part about flying in, however. At one point coming into the city, all the lights disappeared and we were out over the water for what seemed like a long time. It was very silent and eerie. Posted by Picasa

Boston ... yet another intriguing city with so much old mixed in with the new! Posted by Picasa

The holocaust memorial in Boston brought me to tears. Posted by Picasa

The walkway leads you through gas chambers (one for each concentration camp). Quotes from the stories of people are on the walls and engraved in the stones. I didn't realize this until the end, but if you look down through the grates, there are thousands of little lights symbolizing the eyes of those who died. Posted by Picasa

The numbers issued to people during the holocaust were etched in the glass walls of the chambers. Posted by Picasa

I didn't understand this well yet (shoah), but I intend to ask my Jewish friend more questions. My heart was sorrowed as well as touched. Posted by Picasa

This was too weird ... look what happened to the egg in our microwave! We laughed over that one for a while. It looks like a bird's nest! Posted by Picasa

I just found this photo tonight ... didn't even realize it was in with the pack of pictures from Grandpa's visit in September, 2004. Thus I fully support my strange claim to KEEP EVERYTHING ... I'm a digital packrat, but it pays off. Posted by Picasa

Chicago ... one of my favorites!

Who knew that airports could be so artistic? I've seen some great ones in the past year. This one appealed to my sense of design with colorblocks flanking either side of the moving walkway. Posted by Picasa

On my way to Tulsa ... I get to fly into Chicago! Suddenly I find myself in Chicago an awful lot! The kids would be jealous. They loved being here last fall and would give anything to come back again. Posted by Picasa

DISNEY! What a Christmas Holiday!

Today we get to experience Disney ... this is a BIG DEAL! Posted by Picasa

But K didn't think it was all that big. Posted by Picasa

In fact I think it made him downright piratey! Posted by Picasa

We came all this way ... and we can't leave without taking a spin in the teacups! Posted by Picasa

WOW ... those teacups are tough! Posted by Picasa

Maybe the carousel would be a good place to slow things down and settle our stomachs! Posted by Picasa

The merry-go-round ... one of her favorites! Posted by Picasa

What can top practically being in a shooting game with your best friend? WINNING! Next time ... I win. Posted by Picasa

After we came out, everything was dark and hauntingly beautiful. Posted by Picasa

Our dining reservations happened to be at a place on the main square ... how blessed are we? With the exception of stray balloons, we had quite an amazing elevated view for the parade. Posted by Picasa

Stunning ... as with everything Disney, it's over-the-top and I loved it! Both me and my camera loved it! Posted by Picasa
