Dave Graduates! Congratulations....

I never got my trip to Boston (in May!) blogged...so here are a few (late) highlights




The big event....Dave receives MBA from Brandais University! Congratulations, Dave(and Jessica)....





While walking through Boston we saw this poster in the American Express window....it's a poster of Dave and Jess on their recent free trip to Barcelona/Venice...they are in the gondola...



In the "back yard" of The Breakers...the mansion Cornelius Vanderbult Jr. built in Newport RI 1893. This was fascinating...and sad that he only spent one summer here before he died. The tour was very fascinating




Riding back on the ferry....(my feet were glad!)



One of the many historic sites in Boston...



A famous donkey in Boston...in 1827 Andrew Jackson established the Democratic Party and ran for President with the slogan "Let the people rule." His opponants thought him silly and labeled him "Jack**s Jackson"...however Jackson turned the tables by using the donkey on his campaign posters. It became the Party symbol.



Penny being cute...


We were intrigued by the title of the sermon.


I'm eating Boston Cream Pie in Boston!


Penny and Gma Pat at the "Rock"....you know the one.
