Boston Part 2

Saturday morning we woke up and decided to venture out and see what Boston had to offer. We opted to walk instead of taking the rental car and were so glad we did. In honor of Miss Priss's 10 month birthday we thought we would take her to the Boston Children's Museum. Along the way we came across a beautiful park called the Boston Commons, which just happens to be the oldest park in the US (according to Brice anyway, I think he said he read that somewhere). The scenery was just breathtaking! There were tons of people out jogging and walking their dogs, and  the weather was just perfect, cool but not cold. Emma Kate fell asleep on the way to the museum, so we had to wake her up once we go there. At first she wasn't too sure what to think about everything, but eventually she warmed up to it and had a good time. The museum was so cool, and would have really been perfect had she been a little older. Guess we will just have to go back! :)

After the children's museum we headed to The Cheesecake Factory for a yummy lunch and then back to the hotel for a nice long nap. While Emma Kate and I were napping Brice headed off for his conference (the whole reason we were on the trip in the first place!). :) 

That evening we ventured across the street to the Prudential Center to walk around and eat dinner. Everyone told us that the one place we had to eat at was Legal Seafood. And although we had to wait over an hour and a half we were so glad to took their advice. It was excellent!! I even tried raw oysters for the first time and actually enjoyed them! Brice said they didn't taste anything like the ones he's had here in Lubbock, so I think I'll save my oyster eating for when we're on the coast. :)

Again, I haven't quite figured out how to move these pictures around (anyone with a Mac have any suggestions??), so bear with me, they are really out of order!

Hey! I loved reading about your Boston trip. It looks awesome! I want to go there now! I have a Mac and my pictures always do that. I just end up cutting and pasting them in the right order. If I figure out a better way I'll let you know! Hope you guys are doing well! abby

Sounds like a blast. I am worried about taking Caleb to fly and visit my mom in Washington. I am sure you were glad to have Brice along to help.
