This Moment - A Friday ritual inspired by Soule Mama.
A simple and special moment that I want to hold onto and cherish.
If you feel inspired to do the same, please

|Quite cousin time.|
|Cousin H engaging with sidewalk art.|
|Strong Auntie holding up Miss B.|
|Our friend, eyeing us a bit warily.|
|This lovely creature welcomed one and all to the festival.|
|Lanterns, lanterns everywhere lighting up the night.|
|Once lit, the heat from the flames caused these paper |
lanterns to take flight and soar off into the night.
|So cool, and kind of dangerous seeming in a thrilling way.|
|Our homemade seltzer bottle lanterns.|
|Lighting the way home.|
|Miss B beneath a mammoth cucumber vine which was a "volunteer" this year.|
|Not contaminated. These beauties are heading to the freezer!|
|Ahh, aren't hotel sheets luxurious?|
|The view from our hotel room. We were endlessly enthralled with the comings |
and goings at the City of Boston Fire Department directly across the street.
|Room service - Bubbe and Miss B ate in while Mr B and I ate out. Well not out actually, we went for a stroll along the waterfront and then thoroughly enjoyed dinner at the hotel's French restaurant. Such a treat, and I think I may have fallen in love with polenta!|
|Out and about. The city felt so festive.|
|The water side of our hotel.|
|The water front was fairly quiet in the rain.|
|Contemporary art at the MFA.|
|Are these chairs fun or what?|
|Love this chandelier!|
|This woman looks so capable and self assured.|
|There was a crack at the base of this by the feet and Miss B was convinced she could see something inside. She was beside herself with excitement.|
|Loving these colors.|
|Water play at The Boston Children's Museum|
|There was an absolutely amazing collection of dollhouses on display.|
As we kept discovering more rooms we kept shrieking
"Shrink me, oh, please shrink me!"
A fantastic trip! Super spur of the moment (we decided the day before), and not all that expensive. We Hotwired the hotel, and borrowed a pass from one of our libraries for discount admission to the MFA, and then we went one hour before closing for half price admission to The Children's Museum (which was perfect). It was not nearly as crowded as it has been other times we've gone, and they periodically announced how much time was left so you could be sure to see what you wanted to.
Mr. B seems pleased too, having gotten his city fix for a bit.
