At school we the tradition of dressing up for Halloween has continued. Thanks to one Math teacher, there is now a competition between departments. This year our department was a biker gang. I was very impressed how it all came together. (I am on the far left).
Todd also carved a pumpkin this year. Pretty impressive.
In October we went to NYC for a 24 hour trip with a group of our friends from Boston. We got $1 bus tickets from Megabus. The bus left Boston Friday night at 11:00 pm. We got into NYC at 3:30am and went to a 24hour diner for our first breakfast. Then we went to enjoy Times Square. You would think the picture above is taken at night, but it is actually about 6:00am!
Then we went to Battery Park to enjoy the sunrise, it was beautiful reflecting off the buildings downtown. We walked around for awhile, sat on the bull, had a second breakfast and then went back to Times Square and Central Park. We saw the Fantastiks in the afternoon and left on a bus back to Boston at 11:00pm. It was a great weekend, but very tiring!
Back in September we went to Washington DC with Mitch and Bekah. The only reason we went is because Todd found us a good deal! $73 dollars per person including airfare and a hotel room for three nights. With the deal we each got our own room, so one room became the "hang-out" room and one room was never even touched. We had fun going to the historical sites, finding more deals and enjoying the wonderful weather. Way to go Todd!
A few weekends ago, Todd and I finished a 1/2 marathon with two of our friends Bekah and Laura. We had been training for months and it feels so great to have accomplished this success. The day was perfect for running, sunny and high 60s along a beautiful course on the coast in Portsmouth, NH. I hope to keep up the training and do another 1/2 marathon soon, Todd is transitioning to biking with his new road bike.
On the last weekend of Summer we camped on a Boston Harbor Island, Grape Island with some friends. It was a great time. We made a big fire on the shore with downtown Boston in the background (you can see it very small in the picture above).
