I Don't Know How Sean Managed It, But...

Sean and Bonny are engaged! They forbade me to post their news until they could tell the folks, but I think I'm safe now. So here's the story: When we all went to New York, Chris and I made up an excuse to split off from Sean and Bonny. The two of them subsequently walked to Central Park and hired a horse-drawn carriage where Sean proposed. (Bonny sent me the below picture - I wasn't stalking them).

The last I heard, Sean and Bonny are planning a mid-July wedding since Sean has few breaks in his rotation schedule to accommodate enough time to get married. I'm thrilled to be getting a new sister-in-law - I adore Bonny, which is, I think, the general consensus in the McRoberts/Leckrone family. Chris and I are both honored to be in the wedding party and wish we lived closer in order to help them out during what I'm sure will be a busy four months.
Where it all went down...
After breaking the terrible news to Chris and me...

New York and Other Adventures

Sean and Bonny flew back to Minnesota this morning. Chris and I are both sad, and Greta is moping sullenly at the door. We hit most of the New York tourist spots Sunday and Monday, and Sean and Bonny toured Boston for the rest of their visit.

Times Square

Hot dogs - we all had a FEW Statue of Liberty

New York Stock Exchange Merrill Lynch Bull

Guess this one's obvious...

Last night, we celebrated Sean and Bonny's last day by driving to the North End (Italian area) for dinner with my cousin Matt. After that we went bowling. Matt emerged the triumphant winner. Don't ask me to share my score... Right now, we're weathering a snowstorm. Both Chris and I were told to leave work early today (snicker, snicker) since we're supposed to get maybe six inches. We got home about 2:00 and drove around a couple neighboring towns, scoping out potential houses. Chris and I are hoping to buy a house this spring.

Sean and Bonny

Sean and Bonny arrived into Boston today! Today, we drove around Boston and capped off the day with a lobster dinner. Chris and I are so excited they are here! We stopped at the Granary Cemetary - below Sean and Bonny are standing by Samual Adam's gravestone. Tomorrow morning we drive to New York City!
