Boston Update


Hello, my friends! I’m in Boston! And warm!

Thanks for all of your suggestions- of course, I didn’t read most of them until I arrived here, but I’ve brought lots of layers and am peachy keen, jellybeans.

I’m extremely superstitious and don’t want to jinx future travels, but I have to say, yesterday was a breeze. We woke Wito up at 5:00am PST, he went to sleep last night at 10:45pm EST (with only a 35-MINUTE NAP on the plane) and was perfect all day. PERFECT. He must have been delirious, yo.

Currently, we are adjusting to the loss of three hours (aka Time Change alá SHITTAY). I’m experimenting with the blogging-to-keep-me-awake approach, but the boys seem to have nipped the issue in the bud:


5:15pm. Look out, Boston! The Whoorl Family is CRAZY.

Have a great weekend, everyone!



  1. The picture is dark for me, but I am sure the boys are snoozing away. Have fun.

  2. Oh my, that picture is too precious for words!

  3. Enjoy your time with the other D family! Congrats to them!

  4. What a sweet picture! :)

    And yes, losing hours totally bites.

  5. You’re right across the river and yet so far away. Sob. Hope you’re having fun in the Hub.

    That picture is PRECIOUS. One of my favorite pictures is of my husband and son sleeping. I framed it and it’s in my bedroom. Speaking of time change suckage, my husband comes home from Iraq for mid tour R&R (!!!!!!) this weekend, and they are 8 hours ahead. So he’s sort of flying back in time to get here and will be screwed up for DAYS.

  7. That photo is absolutely beautiful.

  8. Gorgeous photo! Glad you are layered and warm, and that you had a great flight. Hope the rest of your trip is as awesome.

  9. I just hope they don’t both wake up at 3am, ready to take on the day.

  10. Ohhh! You’re in my neck of the woods! Hope you have a good weekend, and that it’s not TOO rainy tomorrow…grrrrr, March in New England is always a crapshoot.

  11. You guys are such badasses!

    That pic is veeeery cute!

  12. Has the week-old Daylight Savings Time change made it even weirder? I think it’s awesome that Wito is adjusting well so far.

  13. Glad you’ve arrived safely! Enjoy your time here in the Bean! (Sorry our weather kind of sucks right now…damn you, March).

  14. Treasure that picture forever. How beautiful – your two boys. Have a wonderful time in Boston and safe travels!

  15. Michelle says:

    Your boys are precious. Have a great time in Boston and a safe flight back too!

  16. Welcome to Boston! Hope you have a great time despite the schzophrenic weather here – damn March can’t commit to winter OR spring!

  17. glad you are here!

  18. Have a great time! So glad to hear that the time change hasn’t been too bad.

  19. that’s right, lady. PARTY LIKE A ROCK STAR.


  20. Such a sweet photo!

  21. I HATE the Eastern time zone (I’m a Cali girl too). Go Wito!

  22. That picture is so sweet. Too cute. Have a great time on your trip!

  23. Welcome to Boston! Have fun, even if the weather isn’t quite up to California standards!

  24. What a great picture! Hope you are enjoying your vacation. Just three words for you….ROCK CHALK JAYHAWK!!!

  25. Boston! Cambridge! You were in my hood! You picked a chilly weekend to come visit us New Englanders. At least you got in some good sleep.
