Boston Vacation: Day #3

8 Apr

What a fun morning we had around here! We started out the morning by heading over to Cambridge. It was a long subway ride over with 3 connections but Zoey and I managed just fine and were able to get there in plenty of time before the hunt. I love the fact that Zoey still loves being in the carrier. It makes my life so easy…especially doing activities like navigating the subway system. I guess we even looked like such pros that we had two other people come up to us and ask for help with directions…ha!

The reason for going to Cambridge an Easter Egg Hunt at Harvard and my superstar was able to get 3 eggs. Big improvement from last weekend’s one egg find! :) I was so proud! Zoey was super proud of her self too and was quite the little show-off. She made lots of friends and had her own little dance party in the center of Harvard Square that was too cute!

After the hunt and all of the other Easter activities we headed on over to a cute little coffee shop for diaper changes and lunch. Zoey got an egg sandwich of course and we actually ended up purchasing a carrot cake too because Zoey decided to stick her hand all in it while we were checking out. I am not a fan of carrot cake so I sure hope Zoey eats it all up! :)

After lunch it was getting close to nap time so we caught the subway back home and baby girl fell sound asleep in the carrier. So she was able to get a good 20 minutes of her nap in even before we got back in the room.

After pea pod woke up from her nap Zoey and I headed back out the door for our Harbor Boat Cruise. It was an extremely COLD boat ride but fun and we learned lots about the harbor and the history of the Boston Waters.

After the cruise we headed back up to the room to put on a little warmer clothes then were right back out the door to go see the ducks at that park. If you have read “Make way for Ducklings by Robert McClouskey” you will know what ducks I am talking about. Once we found out about our trip to Boston I started reading this famous book to Zoey that was a book I remember reading as a child too. And Zoey could not wait to get to the Public Gardens to see these ducks! :)

We took the subway or “Go Go Choo Choo” per Zoey to the park but decided to walk back. It was a couple of miles through the historic district so it was a very beautiful walk and we stopped for dinner on the way home. But only a couple of blocks from our hotel the 35+ pounds I have been toting around  all day got to me because I had to hail a cab.

After we were back at the hotel and I had a few minutes to rest I took Z to the indoor swimming pool where she went CRAZY! Girl loves some swimming and she also loves her daddy too who she was very excited to see come back to our room later that night! :)

    […] The next morning the Easter festivities continued when we all headed over to the big Easter Egg Hunt the state park was putting on. There we met up with all of my family who didn’t end up spending the night at the campsite. Zoey had fun seeing the Easter Bunny, riding the Easter Horse, and jumping in the jump-jump. But by far her favorite was the 10 THOUSAND egg Easter Egg Hunt! And this year she was ALL about it and really excited! I wasn’t sure how she was going to do but baby girl was fast and able to fill her Easter basket to the top with eggs. Crazy how far she has come from last year in Boston (you can read about here).
