At the commencement fair, when Sara and I bought our caps and gowns, a crazy lady wearing a lobster hat was yelling about the Lobster Bake and telling us that there was going to be a beer truck. So, of course, we signed up.
The music department teaching assistants and the band directors frequently go to lunch, and we frequently tease Andy about his poor nutrition. On this day, he decided to get a salad, and I was so proud of him that I had to take a picture.
Dr. Andy Boysen, ladies and gentlemen...
UNH has this initiative called "Healthy UNH" that is focused on the general overall health of the school population. This includes stress relief during finals week. I was in the library, and I noticed this sign. Pretty awesome, even if I didn't get to partake.
A little field trip to a restaurant in Portsmouth called The Friendly Toast. Here, Casey's devouring her King Cakes (I guess this is a flavor combination that Elvis liked): chocolate chip pancakes with peanut butter in between and bacon on top. She opted out of the whipped cream on top...
Katie came up for a visit, and we went to Boston to walk the Freedom Trail. I didn't know this, but this brick path runs for about 3 miles through the city of Boston, past many historical sites along the way. Very cool! The weather was gorgeous that day. Katie and I had a ball being tourists.

I took care of Lucy, Kendall's daughter, the other day, and we spent some time in the arcade at the bowling alley. This is the luckiest girl in the world. Next time, I'm going to have her pick my lotto numbers. $5 in tokens, and she got something like 350 tickets, mostly on one game!
This is what happens when the horn section doesn't get enough attention during rehearsal... We come up with French horn gang signs. Check it out... My index finger is the lead pipe, my thumb and middle finger make the body of the horn, and my ring finger and pinky are the bell. Pretty cool, huh?
And here's Hannah trying to play hers... :D
Mathieu and Fabienne were kind enough to invite me to dinner at their place. We went on a walk in the woods behind their house, and we picked up a few pieces of litter along the way. Beer can on a stick. Fabienne feels like it's representative of New Hampshire. :)
