Birthday presents for my siblings

I have two half-siblings – a sister on my mom’s side and a brother on my dad’s. Angela turned 10 on June 1 and Kevin will be turning 2 on June 6. Here are pictures of them because I can’t express how adorable and lovey they are:

So anyway, here’s what I bought for Kevin:

Imaginarium Train Table

Imaginarium Train Table

It’s a table with a storage drawer and a reversible playtop, AND it has train tracks, trains, a crane, a car, a truck, a helicopter, cargo, people, and so on and so forth. It’s amazing! I saw it at Toys R Us and knew I would have to buy it. And here’s what I’m hoping will come to fruition this summer so that I can buy it for Angela before they come to visit. It’s especially appropriate because she’s a rabbit in the Chinese zodiac. Apparently it will even have changeable clothes!!

Happy 14th No. 25-52

Ye Olde Union Oyster House

ye olde Union Oyster House

I should explain – I’m not actually very good with “important dates” in relationships, but in the course of making fun of myself for it, we started remembering and sometimes doing something for our “special day”. Of course, I didn’t remember what day it was until after dinner, so all of our awesome adventures were just a coincidence, but it’s the thought that counts!

This particular 14th, we happened to be in Boston, and decided that it just wouldn’t be a trip to Boston without eating seafood, specifically from the oldest continuously operating restaurant in the U.S. – the Union Oyster House. It was Adrian’s first time having oysters and it was a good time, even if I can’t eat more than a few before getting totally freaked out. Despite Kathy’s warnings about terrible driving conditions in Boston, we had an easy trip and got a parking spot right in front of the place, from which I snapped that picture. Awesome.

We also went to the amazing Museum of Fine Arts, walked around the Faneuil Hall Marketplace, and did a little dining and shopping on Newbury Street. All this in addition to visiting my darling sister at Boston College. A successful trip, I’d say.

More to come later about our weekend jaunt. I promise.
