City trip Travels

{city trip} Easter weekend in Boston – weekend de Pâques à Boston

April 7, 2015

For the long Easter weekend I went back to Boston to visit my friends Siri and Jason. My last visit was when they lived in Seattle, exactly two years ago and this visit was my fourth to the red brick city. Plus we did a little road trip to Portland, Maine. This time of the year was still a bit chilly with the last signs of a cold winter: big patches of grey snow could be found in somes gardens and on our way to Portland. I really enjoyed these moments with Siri and her boys who are really cute. We had a fun cooking time (and definitely way too much chocolate and sugar!) and nice eating out despite me being a bit jetlagged!

Siri and Jason have a beautiful home decorated with style. You can see Siri’s work as Family and Wedding photographer on her website. I highly recommend to use her for your photos if you live in the area: you’ll be sure to spend a nice moment and have great shots of your family. I also digged into my photo archives and found a few old ones of my previous wandering into the Boston streets and Harvard grounds which I am adding at the end.

The bunny was a present from Jason’s mother to the children. It arrived on Friday in a parcel full of other surprises: perfect timing! I could not resist a photo: it is just too cute! The kids loved it straight way – there is another green one!

When two years ago we died eggs, on this occasion we made a Easter nest cake for the joy of her sons (and ours too!) – I had to do some food photography! I used the recipe (not typically French) on the link here but did not have self raising flour, hence the sponge cake was a bit more compact but still tasty with the fresh orange flavour. I would even add the French Alsa yeast if you have some handy.

Hope you had all a good Easter!
