Boston is beautiful!

Didn't get into Boston till 1:00 something this morning, we were wiped out but with the time difference, I think we got up at 11:30 this morning too! What a beautiful place, need to put on some pictures but they are on Jeff's phone right now. I forgot what wet leaves smell like, not that we don't have wet leaves in Seattle; but the there are so many more trees here, the street where Brad and Krystal live of lined with them. It looks like a Post Card around here. Jeff or I neither one have ever been here and it is amazing. We went downtown and got to see Brad's office, his view of the whole city is amazing.
 We took a bus and the subway to get to downtown. I have never been on a Subway before...felt like I was in the movies! :) Kai was quite the little trooper and travel today and tonight, guess that is probably because Mom and Dad love to travel so much.
What a blessing it is to be here and get to know Kai a little better. Of course he has really taken to his Poppa, but not quite so sure about Nana! How can that be? :) We are going to try and do some sight seeing tomorrow because bad weather is suppose to hit by Sunday from the Hurricane.
As we walked and walked the streets of Boston tonight, I felt blessed that I am healthy enough to travel here and strong enough to walk around and see this beautiful city with my family.
So many people have helped me get to where I am today, and I especially am thankful for my Heavenly Father. It was almost 4 years ago that I was diagnosed with Cancer for the 2nd time. It was a time of fear, doubt,pain, sadness and for a long time I couldn't quite look to the future. I didn't plan for things... all I did was worry if I could make it through the next day. I didn't look forward, just stuck on the here and now. I never thought that bad feeling and worry ever would go away. Some times I still worry that it might come back, but I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I am still here for a reason. I am here to continue to share my story, and I am here because I have a lot more to do. I just pray that I will always be willing to do whatever it is Heavenly Father wants me to do. I pray that I will spend real time with my family and that I will always tell them how much I love them. I am blessed and I am still here maybe... so that I can spend time with the kids here and to see how beautiful Boston is in the Fall!

Good night dear friends!
