I have to share the full story with you before recapping the trip.
Hubby met a super nice and cool couple while on the golf course in Las Vegas 5 years ago. They all hit it off and casually said "come visit us in Boston sometime." A couple of months later we did just that.
We didn't stay with them that first trip and they were sans kiddo back then. They lived in the back bay area (I think) with a patio overlooking the city~ it was great. We went to a Red Sox game and the whole works.
Hubby has seen them a few times since that first trip in 06 but I haven't.
They built this beautiful home in Wrentham a few years ago and there was plenty of room for us to stay with them this go round.
The first morning I walked around their property taking pictures. The weather and the changing leaves was the perfect backdrop for a fantastic weekend. This was the day that we went to the farm (post here) and the guys went golfing.
Headed out to dinner on Saturday night and to surprise our friend Jessie for his 40th birthday (he lives in Boston). Our good friend Yuki was doing business in NYC (he lives in London) so he hopped up to join us for the evening. Erin and I showing off our new matching JCrew suede ballet flats. ☺
Dinner at Tastings in Foxboro, yummy!

I snuck in my long run (post here) on Sunday morning then got geared up for a day of beer and football ~ Patriots vs Cowboys game. We had a fun little tailgate party before the game and a total blast at the actual game.
We spent Monday in the city. The frog pond playground.
The frog pond carousel.
Lunch at Stephanie's on Newbury.
Enjoyed the sights and shops on Newbury then we were off to the airport.
We bid farewell to the falling leaves, the crisp cool weather and our dear, sweet friends.
Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art... It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.
