Boston.

Wow I have fallen off the blogging wagon.
I just started working full time this last week and am having a hard time getting used to this 9-5 ish.
I am way behind on my blogging now and still have so much to tell you about our trip!
So here is installment number two of our vacay-
Boston.

Although we actually stayed in New Hampshire with Ben's family, Boston was really close and 
so we went there a lot!  
I have a confession-Boston was my favorite! 
Sorry New Yorkers but I really loved it there.

The first trip we made to Boston was to go visit the famous Boston Museum of Science!
Ben has two little 5-year-old twin brothers and a little baby sister so the kids were in heaven! It was actually really cool to go and Ben kind of likes that nerdy "How-it's-Made" stuff.
It's Science.

Our next trip to Boston was one of my favorite days of our whole trip-RED SOX Game.  I have never been to a pro-baseball game and what better way to start than Fenway Park.  On our way up we stopped at an amazing muffin place.  These were muffins on steroids!  They had icing and cream and were huge and had flavors like gingerbread, Boston creme and strawberry shortcake.

We then stopped by the beautiful Boston Temple to walk around and take a billion pictures!  We sure look like a Red Sox Family!


We drove to take the T (subway) into Boston and wow I thought NYC subways were crowded, try taking a subway on a home game.  It was quite the squished and sweaty adventure but it was fun seeing whole cars packed to the brim with crazy fans!  When we got to Fenway, it was like a little village, so many people, so many hotdogs and sausages and the stadium was amazing!




Although I didn't know what was going on the whole time.  I loved the atmosphere! Fenway Franks, crazy fans, Sweet Caroline at the eighth inning, peanuts and they won! I am so thankful to Ben's parents for making this happen!

Our last trip to Boston was Downtown Boston and where I really fell in love.  We walked the freedom trail, visited Faneuil Hall and the Market, Went to Old Italy and ate some of the best food ever!



The old with the new.

Overall Boston was one of the coolest cities I have ever been to!  I think it would be a really fun place to live and at the least I want to go back and visit and be able to explore for weeks!

There is so much more for you to explore (and eat). I love Boston for lots of sentimental reasons, but also because it is such an amazing, beautiful, fun city. So glad you and Ben enjoyed it!

Looks like tons and tons of fun! And no worries about a temporary fall off of the blogging wagon...I'll bet a 9-5 is enough to get used to, much less keeping up with daily blogging on top of it! :)
