Our first weekend in the Boston area and it was a good one. Of course, we're in that "vacation" stage of moving where everything is new and exciting but it's definitely nice to have different things to do. In Maine, we were near some beautiful places but most were about an hour drive. Here, we're about a 10 minute drive to downtown Boston which is so convenient.
On Saturday afternoon, we went in to the see "the ducks". I find it amusing that kids are SO entertained by these little statues. It's also even more amusing to watch adult tourists wait for the kids to get off to get a picture of them - ummm, it's not going to happen! For those of you that don't know, they're from the book "Make Way for Ducklings" that's about a group of ducks that live in Boston.
After seeing the ducks, we ventured over to the swan boats.
Then we hit the crazy playground that's on Boston Common. I say crazy because the place is always packed and just insane with kids. Of course, Cameron loved every minute of it. Afterwards, we got a balloon sword. Unfortunately, dealing with weapon toys and scary faces is just something that comes with having boy children. At least he debated for a moment on whether to get a sword or a flower.
That lasted about 5 minutes before he popped it and then asked for another one. Ummm, no, I told you that it would pop if you were rough with it. It was a great afternoon and these types of things will even be more enjoyable when this baby is out of my belly. It's become a bit difficult to walk, my legs hurt and breathing just isn't as easy.
And of course, it wouldn't be complete with the token side profile shirt. Can you tell that I'm having trouble finding shirts that are LONG enough. Oh, being tall and prego is not fashionably easy.
Sunday we went to a nearby beach area for lunch. Most of the beach areas around the city are pretty ghetto but still nice to be able to go to a beach and get some fried fish. No pics' since we didn't actually hang out at the beach very long. There was a major wind storm so we ended up getting food and after sand blowing in our faces, we ended up eating it in the car. So much for that ;-)
