Apologies for not posting much these days, folks. I promise to update the happenings at the farm as soon as I’m able. In the meantime, a fun new holiday feature just, ahem, arrived in Arrive. I got the chance to interview the Northeast’s four James Beard Award-winning chefs and wine… Read More →
For our final meal of the trip, we got some takeout from La Verdad — Ken Oringer’s Mexican restaurant near Fenway. Everything was mighty tasty. Related posts: Heading to Boston Lunch at the Union Oyster House in Boston Bon Chon Takeout at the Ranch Breakfast in Boston: Eastern Standard
After the aquarium, we went to visit Fischer. He’d had a rough night’s sleep, what with a loud crying child in the bed next to his, but he was still in good spirits and recovering nicely. Way to go little man! Related posts: No related posts.
Reece got a new iPod Touch before he left for Boston. Boy did it come in handy for making movies of swimming fish at the New England Aquarium! Related posts: Ice Skating with Reece at Frog Pond Baseball with Fisher; Legos with Reece
Oysters and pasta for us. Grilled cheese sandwich and fries for Reece. Related posts: Breakfast in Boston: Eastern Standard Lunch at the Union Oyster House in Boston Lunch at Coppa in the South End Lunch at The Boathouse in Rockland, Maine

While Jessica and Kelly took care of Fischer during his surgery, we took care of Reece. We took him to Frog Pond on the Boston Common, where he picked up ice skating like he’d been doing it all his life. Related posts: Baseball with Fisher; Legos with Reece Let’s Bowl!
Our apartment in the Back Bay was right around the corner from Clio, Ken Oringer’s temple of fine dining and his signature restaurant. We weren’t able to get in a meal, but we did stop for a couple of excellent cocktails on the way over to Jessica and Kelly’s place… Read More →
After Fenway, we went for a little bowling with the boys at Lucky Strike. As usual, I lost. But we all had fun! Related posts: A Tour of Fenway with the Family Baseball with Fisher; Legos with Reece Heading to Boston Supper on the Patio with Kelly and Jessica
Jessica organized for us a tour of Fenway Park. It was cold, and there was construction, but we all had a good time and learned a lot. We also tried to squeeze in a little time for family portraits! Related posts: Historic Mankato Pub Crawl: A Walking Tour with a… Read More →
After my morning walk, I headed back to the apartment Greg and I rented on Marlborough Street to see how his highness was doing. (Sorry: no photos of the apartment, I forgot. But you can check it out on VBRO.com here.) He was ready for lunch. Jessica and Kelly were… Read More →
