This year Gram was recovering, very nicely, I might add, from bronchitis.
So Kim, Jack, and I were on our own to be the “Barrett” representation at the race.
The weather man had promised rain and wind. The rain had cleared out early in the day, not to return until evening. But the wind kept up just the same. Fortunately, it wasn’t terribly cold.
I didn’t get too many photos. I’m sure the official photographer from St. Andrews got some good stuff.
Race is over. Now it is time for pie. 🙂

We are really Jammin’ at Easton Pond
Two days early we celebrated Jack’s birthday.
Tacos were the fare. They were yummy! A special treat.
After eating our fill, we adjourned to the living room and Jack’s presents.
Kim and Anne planned a special surprise for this party.
family and friends to a party. The expecting parents took a sealed envelope with the gender concealed inside to a bakery and ask that they
color the cake pink if baby is a girl or blue if a boy. That way, when the cake was cut, the gender is revealed to all guests (and parents).
Here’s the cake!
Here is the singing.
Here is the cake cutting.
And the envelope, please!
It was a great idea, and a good thing the parents had a back up plan!
Kate and Ted flew into Boston for the big event. 🙂
Auntie opened her home to us. We met in the Boston Garden and the boys had a great time at the playground.
The boys loved the city.
With Halloween around the corner, Jack tried out a monster hat.
The boys loved the stairs at Auntie’s .
Shopping at Whole Foods. 🙂
Next stop? Grammie’s!
