A Weekend in Boston

Our weekend came and went in a flash, but it was a great trip. Boston is an amazing city! Dan has been touting it since he interviewed there nearly 4 years ago, so I knew we had to make it out there sometime. I wasn't going to get excited this time until we were actually on the plane and I knew there were no hurricanes in sight. It's so nice to spend time without the kids but the older they get, the more I want them to experience these adventures with us, maybe one day we can afford to take all of us!

Making our decent into Boston. Continental had an hour delay with our first flight so we missed our connection from Newark, luckily we were able to get on standby on the next flight in.

The city from our hotel room across the river.

Sitting on the steps of the Harvard library. It's a beautiful campus, although I've never mentally compared IQ's with so many people in my life. It's a bit intimidating knowing everyone around you is much smarter than you!

Look, it's Hawvawd yawd.

Darn it, one of the students must have dropped their book!

Harvard Square

It was refreshing to be able to wear jackets because you were actually chilly and to see trees with no leaves on them!

Walking through the streets of Boson

One thing about Boston is all the old graveyards, I have a morbid fascination with graveyards! Dan thinks it's funny that I could take a considerable amount of time checking out headstones.

Paul Revere's grave

Bunker Hill Monument

Cool, old church in Bunker Hill neighborhood.

If I moved to Boston, I would want to live in the Beacon Hill neighborhood! It's beautiful with it's old brownstones and brick sidewalks and cool shops. I'm sure it comes with a rather hefty price tag as well...but it could happen!

Bundled up and loving it!

Boston Public Garden

It's hard to see everything in a weekend so hopefully we'll get the opportunity to go back sometime.
