Still no news to report on the adoption front.

Whether this adoption works out or not, we will still be moving forward with the process.

That being said, we reconsidered our anniversary plans. For those of y'all who don't know, we were gonna take a 7 day/6night vacay to New England, (3 days in Boston, 1 day in Philadelphia and 3 days in NY). This would entail 3 different hotels, two sets of train tickets, and PK taking off 5 days of work, (and being away from potential kids or at least Jersey for 7 days).

We decided to cut the vacay shorter, and just stick to Boston, (which is the place we were really the most excited about anyway). :) Just by doing this, we have already saved over $300, and PK will only have to take off 4 days of work. :) {considering if the adoption happens, we will have to buy crib(s), car seat(s), etc...so it is hard to justify spending so much on ourselves ya know?}

We will leave for Boston on April 6th and head home on the 9th. (We will arrive on the 6th in the morning, and leave on the 9th at night- giving us all day on all the days). 4 full days to explore Boston sound pretty great to us!

We are ready to go:

Plane tickets- check
RED SOX tickets- check
Hotel booked- check

We will be staying at the Historic Omni Parker House. We love history, and so that added to the draw of this hotel- it was built in 1855, and read below about Parker's restaurant for some cool history facts...

Being in New England, we knew we could walk everywhere... which would be a big money saver. The hotel had to be near the airport and other locations, especially Fenway! This one is located SO close to everything! Here are just a few things its website lists:

You can start the Freedom Trail when you step out of the hotel!

Old South Meeting House - 0.1 mi
Boston City Hall - 0.1 mi
Boston Common - 0.3 mi
TD Banknorth Garden -0.5 mi
USS Constitution Museum -1.1 mi
Bunker Hill Monument - 1.2 mi
Fenway Park - 2.1 mi

The airport 2.2 mi.

Cheers Bar (Bull & Finch Pub) – 4 blocks

"Boston Cream Pie, Boston Scrod, and, of course, Parker House Rolls all originated—and are still served—at Parker’s, the hotel’s renowned restaurant. John F. Kennedy proposed to Jacqueline Bouvier at Table 40."

Pretty cool huh? :)
We are hoping that our room has this view too! Pretty cool, huh? :) I believe that is the Hancock tower we are seeing up front... ?

Please still be praying over our adoption!
