I know you're all dying to see Evan's handywork, so here are some pictures for your enjoyment.
Not to worry, we are going to be putting in another light fixture over the vanity, so it won't be as dark as in looks in that last picture.
Maybe in about six months you'll see the finished product. In the meantime, I hope you thoroughly enjoy our tedious updates.

In this picture Governor William Bradford (whom Evan is a descendent of), and a few of the pilgrims are sawing a huge log in half, while the "native people" stand and watch. (Again, it was getting dark and the picture is bad).One interesting (and very ironic) thing we learned was that the Pilgrims didn't believe in freedom of religion. Wasn't that one of the basic reasons for them leaving Europe--because they weren't free to practice their own religion?
Anyway, dinner was traditional and good, but nothing special. We were expecting it to be some sort of performance, where we actually sat down and ate with the Pilgrims and "native people" But it was actually just eating a catered dinner in their visitor's center. Regardless, it was still quite the experience to be in Plymouth on Thanksgiving Day.
More Boston pictures to come another day....

I was not in the mood to cook this year.
So we did something different--we went to Plymouth, Massachusetts and ate dinner with the Pilgrims at Plimouth Plantation. It was a great experience.
Combine that with our weekend in Boston and it turned out to be a very exciting, very promising first family trip away NOT visiting family. Pictures will be posted shortly. (Shortly as in it may take a week.)
