Trip to Boston

Everyone knows the term 'stop to smell the flowers'....but does anyone really do that these days? Well, you really should, because they smell really good. I was recently in Boston for school and we took a trip to an arboretum that a Harvard professor started. He was doing a study to prove that the climate in Asia mimicked the one in America and that plants and trees over there could survive over here. I'm pretty sure he was right judging by what I saw. We had the whole morning to wonder around the arboretum to take pictures and sketch. We took some samples (don't tell anyone!) back to the classroom 6th grade style to look at them through a microscope. Plants are so crazy! Anyways, enough of that, here are some images from our trip.





Succulent!

...like to make beer!
After a bike ride one day we went to an ice cream shop. I got the Toto pop shown above. They made it using a spoon as a stick (if it falls apart you have a spoon to eat it!) and a plastic bag and twine. Oh and the flavor was Mocha...yum!

Happy (belated) 4th of July!

This year for the 4th of July I went up to boyfriends cabin for the weekend. I wanted to bring a little treat to share and saw a photo of these beautiful chocolate covered strawberries with a little 4th of July theme added to them. All it takes are Strawberries, White chocolate, and blue sprinkles....and guys, if I can do it, anyone can.

They were just as yummy as they look! Also, be sure to eat them within 48 hours, the juices start to blend everything together :)
