{BOSTON}


Well we're home! and slowly getting back into the groove of things!
here are the highlights of the first part of our trip...

On our way to Boston!
Preston served his mission in Boston, so it was awesome to go back with my parents and see all the areas he served in.

 

Welcome to Boston!

Visiting the beautiful Boston temple


The first Sunday in Boston we got to go to church in Franklin. Prest served in the Franklin area and was one of his favorite areas.

The Forgitt's
crazy, fun family that kept preston well fed on his mish!

We had a delicious steak dinner at the Labonte's. Preston helped reactivate the son and baptize his girlfriend. He went back last year for their sealing in the temple and it was such a crazy coincedence (blessing) that we would be in Boston the same weekend they were blessing their baby boy, Logan. It was so special for Preston to be apart of the blessing and see how far their little family has come.

Not to forget Preston's favorite place.

Cute little Boston outfit for baby!
Baby got spoiled this trip.  
We're naming him Boston, cause prest has always wanted to name his little boy that after serving his mission there. So i guess it's fitting that he gets some Boston attire! ;)
He's gonna be such a little stud.
 

Enjoying the Cheesecake Factory
