Some things we've eaten recently

A fancy brownie at a work dinner:


Sam made soft pretzels, which were amazing. I helped a little with the butter, and a lot with the eating, and I also shaped them:




On a healthier note, we also ate a plate of sushi:

A nice visit home

Over Memorial Day weekend, Sam and I went to visit my family in PA. We went out to dinner with my parents, and my dad wanted to take a picture of my food with his phone, since I was taking a picture of his with mine:





Also Sam and I went out to lunch with my friend and our first and second grade teachers. It was really fun! We try to see them every so often, since they were our best teachers:

A work meeting in Atlanta, complete with snake!

For work, I went to a meeting in Atlanta. It was actually about an hour outside of Atlanta, on an actual plantation. You might suspect that this was not really my scene, but it was good to meet the people who were there, even if it was at a plantation where the social activity was shooting. At least the shooting was of those clay things, not actual animals. Here are some pictures from the place:


If there are flowers, you can always count on me taking pictures of them:



The most exciting part of the trip was seeing a snake. Check it out:


We were on a walk, and my manager tried to pick it up and throw it out of the path, which didn't really work. Luckily, the snake was happy enough to just curl up and not attack us once we left it alone:


That was pretty much the whole snake story, actually. Here's another picture of the place:

Some more spring pictures

Spring has been beautiful in Cambridge, and around, and here are some pictures I took:



Sam and I had a picnic in Cambridge Common:


We also went to PorchFest in Somerville with some friends who live there and watched a band play across the street:

Work training in New York

I went on a work training trip to NYC in early May, and it was pretty cool. I got to stay in a fancy hotel room:


And I got to order room service for the first time in my life:



I think I need more fresh squeezed orange juice in my life. Also I got this at the hotel restaurant, which was not that delicious but was ok:


Then after the training, on the way to the airport for the flight back, I saw this funny load on a truck:


I hope those two little chairs weren't too heavy for that huge truck!

There were turkeys outside our apartment building!

A male and a female, and they were huge! The next day, the male showed up at the building's front door, but was gone by the time I got my camera.

Happy spring!

This picture is from way back in January, when it was terrible weather and I went running and got snow on my head:


I hate winter! Come on spring!
