Boston

When Dad invited me to make good use of a flight credit I had and tag along with him and Mom to Boston I obviously jumped at the opportunity.

I had always wanted to see Boston, and so I was excited to explore.

What I found quickly though was that Boston far exceeded my expectations. I fell completely in love with that city. 

How could I not though?

My first day there Mom took me on a  grand tour of the city. We shopped on this road referred to as "Antique Row" near Beacon Hill. The buildings were brownstone, the streets were cobblestone and it was love at first sight.

(Just ignore my red-eye-plus-sinus-infected exhausted look)


Also, I absolutely adore old things, and lets face it Boston is pretty much as old as it gets in this country. Old buildings, old cemeteries, old roads... I adored it all.




Another thing I loved about Boston-the Freedom Trail.
I've always loved American history, and it was so cool to see the places that helped shape our country.
Mom was nice enough to do the whole thing with me that day, and Dad was able to meet up with us after his meetings. 
The site of the Boston Massacre 





On Friday we toured Fenway Park. Now I'm not going to say that all of a sudden Fenway made me love baseball, but it did make me crave it.

I, for the first time in my life, wanted to go to a baseball game. 

See Boston really is magical. And I love that. 






On the Green Monster



Oh and the food. The food in Boston can't be beat! Especially in the North End. Between the Italian food and the delicious pastries I was in complete food heaven.



Another thing I loved about Boston? How close it was to Harvard. Ten minutes on the subway and there we were-at Harvard Square. 



The statue of 3 Lies-all of which I knew from the Social Network...


The thing I loved most about Boston though was definitely getting to explore it with these two. I had a great time hanging out with them. 




Well that, and the sailboats.


Thanks for letting me tag along Mom and Dad! (and for taking care of me when I was sick) You are the best.

You so perfectly summed up my new love for Boston! I love the old town feel of it. I feel like it's the closest thing to a European city that we have in the states. And so funny that I took almost the same trip shortly after you!!
