Huntington Theatre

I am getting a bit lazy with this blog....need to step it up!! Sunday we went to see this great, funny play at the theatre...the last in our subscription for the year...definitely going to re-up for next season...it gets us up and into Boston for some great plays and then (of course) we need to eat...we were planning on doing just that in Cambridge but the play ended earlier than we thought and dh says "let's just go thru the North End"...right, like there ever would be a parking space in this historic part of Boston with the narrow winding cobblestone streets...WELL..there it was - just past Paul Revere's house...mike says "this can't be..must be a loading zone"...."get in there" i scream (well, maybe not scream but with force)...right in front of a restaurant that had a table for two with our name on it in the window overlooking the square....only about 7 tables..service was slow BUT the food was amazing....!!...Last night was the first Seder and my dd Rebecca hosted...so nice to pass this down to the next generation...the atmosphere was great and the food was amazing...nice and healthy....her dh did all the grilling..the grandchildren where a joy to be with...although sammy was a handful given he is only 18 months old..i thought he did well...tonight we are off to friend's home for the second Seder......to be con't....

the Lion King

JoJo and DD Rebecca and DH Mike and I all went to see the Lion King at the Boston Opera House yesterday....It was fantastic!!!! and JoJo was enthralled..I bought her a shirt and a Simba doll (of course i did!!)...went out to dinner at Polcari for some nice Italian food...had to pack it all up to take home cause Shawn (who was watching Sammy) got an emergency call by the town of Lexington to go in....For you see, the east coast is experiencing a n'or eastern but in the form of rain....roads and houses are being flooded big time....it felt like it would have been faster to get to the theatre if we swam in....it was a little scary at time...saw flooded streets and parking lots and some of the bridges we went over the water was way up the banks...my pump in the basement has not stopped...water on the floor but just "dampening" the floor in areas for the floor was designed to go into the pump area....we live just up from the Concord River but high enough not to be affected by it but when you get 8 inches of rain in a short time you know something is going to happen...luckily we did not loose power (the winds have been crazy)...some areas are just experiencing such damage...it has been such a crazy winter here in the Boston area....mostly rain...not sure when the last snow was here..(she says softly for it ain't over yet)
