last on our summer list…..Trip to Boston to visit Uncle Brian!!!
we love the city!!!
so much to see, so much to do!!!
did you know that Target sponsors $1 Friday night admission to the Children’s Museum?? We knew it was going to be a zoo but we couldn’t pass it up…..we went from 5-7pm and flew through the whole museum….when we left there was still a line out the door….
1st thing the next morning we headed downtown,
a quick hello to the harbor seals at the aquarium,
and we hopped on the city’s boat ferry
for a great view of the city!!!
and for $1.70 each, kids free, it took us across the harbor to the USS Constitution!!
one happy little boy!!!
did i mention there was free admission onto the ship????
just make sure you bring your picture ID…its an active navy ship and security is tight! we found this out the hard way…i forgot my ID and had to spend a
nice quiet hour by myself in the visitors center…while the kids explored the ship.
so i put hubby in charge of picture taking and he got this great one of coop putting the flag up!
next we started walking the freedom trail…and man the city was hot!!!!
next stop…. the Bunker Hill Memorial
up 295 steps….and down 295 steps,
after lunch at Joe’s Bar & Grill, and a round of delicious frozen mudslides we headed to the Greenway’s water fountains to cool off!!!
last stop….Red Bull was sponsoring a cliff diving competition off of the ICA building into the harbor…..
our day ended back at Uncle Brian’s house, ordering take-out, and early bedtimes for two tired kiddos!!!
