Comfort and Joy

I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will
give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
Jeremiah 31:13

Enjoying Boston

Boston really is an amazing city.  I know...I know...I probably won't be saying that this winter but for now when the weather is incredible...I am loving it.  There is so much to see and do.  Our favorite thing to do is explore a new place in the city and the surrounding areas.  David got off a little early the Friday before Labor Day so we took the train to the Boston Gardens and walked around.  We first came across an incredible musician who was being taped for a local tv program.

We then stopped at a man making balloon animals, hats, etc and the boys had to have one each. IMG_3744 IMG_3747
Here he is making Austin's Spiderman hat. IMG_3745
Austin hasn't ever seen Spiderman but he still thought the hat was pretty cool. IMG_3748 IMG_3750 IMG_3752
Miller's hat had a puppy dog on top. IMG_3753 IMG_3754 IMG_3762
In all honesty, I don't know if the balloons were worth it. They maybe lasted 5 minutes before both were popped and I was trying to fish it out of Miller's mouth before he swallowed it. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. After the balloons, we headed over to the Boston Commons and let the boys run free for a little bit.
They like to "help" me push the stroller.
They are also obsessed with pushing every button in the city of Boston. IMG_3772
If I push a crosswalk or elevator button before Austin, you better watch out. He wants to be the one to push it.
Miller can walk on his own for a really long time, especially for a 14 month old but every once in a while he needs a lift from his daddy. IMG_3777

Waiting on the elevator at the T stop, I feel like I do a lot of that. IMG_3785

Again, Austin likes to push the buttons. IMG_3795

Waiting for the T.
Riding the T. Our double BOB takes up a LOT of room. Definitely wouldn't purchase a double BOB if I was moving to the city for good. IMG_3804
Feeding them snacks on the T to keep them happy. IMG_3807
We decided to get off the T at the Kenmore Stop so we could walk by Fenway Stadium. The Red Sox were playing and the atmosphere and energy is amazing during a game. IMG_3811 IMG_3813 IMG_3814 IMG_3815 IMG_3816
I still have the rest of the Labor Day weekend to post.  Stay tuned!
