Happy Easter!!! What a very special first Easter with Zoey it was this morning. We woke up to Zoey smiling extra big at the frog basket that was left on the window seal last night. It was not a super exciting basket because me and Z had to share a suitcase so there was not much room but she loved it none the less.
She was SO sad that daddy had to leave to work again today but we were out the door shortly after him too and on our way over to China Town. We quickly walked through the district because not much was open I guess due to it being Easter morning. But we did grab breakfast there and then hit the subway again over to Beacon Hill. It is the very ritzy district where famous people like Tom Brady and Gisele live. We didn’t see any celebrities but got to see the beautiful architecture and super cute antique shops and children’s boutiques. It also made for some cute pics too!
We took a break from our walking around Boston to stop off at Tadpole Park by the Frog Pond so Zoey could get out of the carrier and run around a bit. She does really good walking around the city but lots of the roads are dangerous so I only let her down in certain areas. She had a blast playing with the other kids at the park and had a squirrel come and eat food right out of her hand…that kind of freaked me out a bit!
After the park we got back on the subway to head on over to the Science Center. Sadly Z fell asleep in the ticket line but since it was free with our McWane Membership I took an hour or so to walk around before catching the subway back to the hotel.
After her nap Eric came back to the room and we headed out the door again to ride the subway to Boston Commons so we could start The Freedom Trail. This trail is a red brick road that stretches 2.5 miles across the city and hits all the famous spots of history. So we got to see places such as Paul Reveres House, balcony where the Declaration of Independence was read, site of the Boston Massacre, and lots of other historic stops. We finished up in The North End which is basically like Little Italy in New York. I had been hearing all about Mikes’s Bakery so we walked aways to find it but the line was wrapped around the building which is just not worth it with a 21 month old in tote so I will just have to imagine how yummy the pastries are!
From there we caught the subway out to MIT…you know I had to let Zoey see all of her school options for the future! Of course we are really pushing for New York University but wherever she chooses is fine. After MIT we walked along the river to see the beautiful Boston skyline and take in all the scenery.
Once we took the subway back on over to our hotel we had one last dinner at the Cheer’s Pub and restaurant from the show. Yes…it was very touristy but it was yummy and a nice family friendly restaurant. But they didn’t know our name…nor did they try so that was a bit disappointing! After dinner we took one last walk around Quincy Market before calling it a night!
