Yesterday we spent the day touring around Boston with our big clan.
We all met at the Charlestown Navy Yard so we could catch a short ferry ride across the harbor to get a great view of the city. We did this from Hingham last visit and everyone enjoyed it. This one was a lot shorter but also a lot cheaper as well.
From there we walked up and hung out in the Boston Common and Public Gardens. Such a beautiful area. The frog pond is always a favourite so everyone can splash around a bit and get cool. From there we stopped and had a bit of a picnic lunch in the shade.
Noah has an affection for swans ever since a few years ago a couple swam up into our yard at a cottage we were renting. This made taking the swan boat ride a much easier decision. It’s a nice relaxing way to get a view of some of the gardens and one of the best parts of my day.
Later in the afternoon the kids long awaited visit to Legoland was on the schedule. It didn’t disappoint! They were thrilled to be running around playing with Lego and going on the couple rides there. The 4D movie theatre was a hit for some, but the falling rain and snow wasn’t for everyone.
After a quick late dinner we headed to our next destination. We made it to our hotel on Hampton Beach not long before the fireworks show. It was a little chilly but worth it. The kids, and Jen and I, had no problem falling asleep.
