Spring has sprung! (for now)

The weather this weekend has been a-maz-ing. Yesterday Mike and I spent the afternoon puttering around Boston – took a little eating tour of the South End, people-watched in the public gardens, pretended we could afford the gorgeous townhouses of Back Bay. We started off the day at Gaslight, and as promised, I ordered the caramelized banana crepes with almond paste. Deeeelish! Mike stuck with the onion soup.

We wandered around the South End, stopping for chocolate chip coconut macaroons at Flour, a tour of the Berkeley Community Gardens (I want in!), and some wine and cheese for dinner at the South End Formaggio. It was such a gorgeous day that we decided to head over to the Public Gardens, along with everyone else in Boston.
In the half hour we were there, we saw 2 dogs wearing shoes, roughly 500 adorable babies, 50 squirrels, and one doggy stroller. It was the kind of day that makes me want to own and walk a dog like this one:

Oh please oh please oh pleeease!
