back from the city….pictures of day1

On Friday we packed the kiddos up and headed to Boston.

Our first stop was the Children’s Museum.

the climbing structure is over 4 floors tall…..what a fun place to be a kid!!!

i love to watch as my two take care of each other as they climb…making sure they stick together, caroline always making sure cooper is ok…..this time there was a camp of large kids who took over so Caroline made sure they got out safely.

the ball room is always a favorite…

cooper was very focused at the sand table….love that tongue!

after over 3 hours in the museum we were ready to explore the city….one very HOT 90 degree city!!!!

we headed straight to the water park on the new green way…..10 years ago when Rob and i lived in Boston the city was under construction…  “The Big Dig”  they took a highway that ran right through the city and put it underground…now leaving space for a beautiful park…what a great place to be on a beautiful day!!!

the water spraying up was a little intimidating for my 2 kiddos….so they stayed side by side and just stood there for awhile.

i can’t tell you how many times i told them “don’t put your face near a hole!!!”  and look what coop is doing……

lets just say a spray of water up your nose  is NOT fun.

next stop

a ride on the carousel while mommy gets a smoothie…..caroline is always waving and cooper is trying to figure out how it works!

Hey there, what a fun day - we love the children's museum so much, you got such cute photos - esp the "air" ones! and the greenway must've been just the right answer on that hot day - is the carousel on the greenway, I didn't recognize that one?!
