One last Boston post

One of my favorite parts of the trip was an afternoon in the Public Gardens.

Shortly after we left the gardens, we headed into Beacon Hill for gelato. Olivia, who was short a nap and long on energy, ran head first into someone on the street. I apologized as I pulled her out the way, just as Katie whispered, “Hey, that was Denis Leary!”

Tom immediately recalled that he was in town to host Comics Come Home, while I posted Liv’s brush with fame on Facebook. At some point, he must have circled back, because we found ourselves waiting at a stoplight with him. I am sure he was completely impressed with the giant tantrum Olivia was executing at that moment.

After taking the train back to Medford, we drove to Cambridge to watch the Huskers take on KU. We joined what must have been the entire Boston chapter of the UNL alumni association at a small pub. I can’t recall the last time I had so much fun cheering for the Huskers.

We had a great trip, thanks to Katie and Tom. We can’t wait to go back!

    We had the same experience in Chicago last year. We went to a Husker bar, which I didn’t think would be a good use of our time. It was a riot, better than going to the game in Lincoln!

    You should have had Denis spend some time with Olivia. He’s pretty scary and I’m sure could have stopped that tantrum! What a crazy story! Great photos!
