We made it to Boston!

We left this morning to go to Boston..we had to be at the Greenville Airport at 730…it has been a long day for everyone. We flew on three different little..I mean LITTLE airplanes to get here..{lots of pictures..}
Our first flight…was with Pilot Benton…or Captain Duck..{he talked like Donald Duck..}

Our second flight took off from Lynchburg, VA with Matt. They were all four seater planes..two seats in the front and two seats in the back.

Daddy..can you hear me???….She loved wearing the headphones but they kept falling off of her head..everyone wore the headphones to hear what was going on..it muffled the sound a lot..

We got here around 330..and by the time we got to our house and check in it was about 430…I apparently don’t live in the city and know how much to tip a taxi cab driver..bc I got one pretty bad at me..oops..he wouldn’t even get my luggage out of the back and then after I got it out he slammed the trunk shut..I guess I have to look up how much to tip a cab driver..but really he already charged me while he was just sitting there punching the address in..three dollars so he can have that for a tip…the one bad thing about flying these small planes..no lunch and no place to grab a lunch..bc you small into small airports and there is only a vending machine..so we were all starving here by the time we got here too..so we went out and found a food court that is by the hospital and then we also found a CVS to get a few groceries..and I cringed at how much I paid for each item..oh well..I couldn’t bring any of it with bc of weight restrictions..we were only allowed to bring so many lbs of luggage..and I squeezed everything I could in the small duffle bags..
The house is nice..I haven't got any pictures of that yet..so that will be another day…but there are three floors of rooms with about ten rooms per floor..and shared bathroom per floor..can I just say …yuck..im sorry but that grosses me out a little..I am going ot have to find out when they clean there bathrooms and make sure I am the first on in there to take my shower..or I will have to get some bathroom cleaner at CVS and clorox it before I take a shower..there are two full bathrooms and one half bathroom per floor.. then on the main floor there is a kitchen and a main sitting area and a little play room with a huge tv..in our rooms is only a bed and a chair and a dresser.our house is actually right next to the Ronald McDonald house. WEll that sums up our day..
ooh yea. Happy Anniversary to my awesome hubby…it was our 12 yr Anniversary today…cant belive it has been twelve years already..what a way to spend it..huh??? oh well we will never forget it..that’s for sure!
