This past weekend I had the both the time and lack of homework to head to
This is Alex, Kim, Mike and John playing games and eating dinner. John, Alex and I played Scrabble, and John, Alex, Mike and Kim played Blokus. It was a great alternative to our original plan of going bowling.
This is the most adorable Emerson ever:
Sebastian got a Big Wheel for his third birthday. He rode it all the way to the park with a little help on the steep parts.
This is Sebastian and Jill on the playground. Note Emerson being followed by John on the left side of the photo. This was right before it started to downpour.
Half-way home John and I and the kids ducked under a church awning. Jill went on ahead to get the car. You can see in the background how hard it was raining. No one was really happy, but Emmy finally got a chance to touch the Big Wheel.
The rain let up and John decided to walk home with Nathaniel and Sebastian, leaving me alone with Emerson while Jill got to us with the car. Emmy was pretty sad to see his big brothers leave.
After coming home and having a warm bath and some hot chocolate, the bigs boys got a story before bedtime.
It was a great weekend and chances are I won't see these guys again until they come up for graduation in May. Already looking forward to it!

Two of my favorite things, paired together to bring out the best in each other. This was a beer and chocolate tasting held at the Wine Gallery in Brookline. This place was wonderful and the tasting was great. My friends Ann and Amy joined me and we got to enjoy some local Taza chocolate, made in Somerville, MA and some beers that were chosen to compliment the different chocolates that Taza makes. I have to say, the whole thing just made me SO happy (as evidenced by the above photo). You can read all about and attempt to recreate the pairings on your own at Drink Craft Beer. Enjoy!

Here's a little clip of the very end of Barack's speech. It's hard to hear him over the crowd.
Tuesday started out early, I voted before work and then had class immediately following work. After that I came home and watched some of the totals come in from Super Tuesday primaries. I was bummed that Massachusetts went to Hillary. I had been viewing the race through Cambridge colored glasses and just assumed that the rest of the state would follow suit. Cambridge ended up going 63% to Obama.
It's still such a close race and one that I'll be paying attention to until the bitter end. It's just so excited to be able to clearly picture either of the democratic candidates as our next president and know that it will be such a huge improvement over what we've got now. I'm already looking forward to it!
