Yes, I am already showing with little bit!
We then shopped till we dropped on Newbury Street (the girls much more than me).
So much shopping that the running shoes Ellen purchased eventually made it to her feet.
I headed on home a little early to relieve Nim while they kept shopping. The boys were super excited to see what we brought home for them. I think that sealed the deal on the boys loving Maggie and Ellen.
On Tuesday afternoon we headed to Cambridge to see Harvard, visit the Curious George store, and enjoy some great mexican food at Border Cafe. The girls were so good with the boys. They were such a help getting around Boston.
Miller made himself very comfortable in the Curious George store while Austin enjoyed a little reading while watching George on tv.
That night as we were getting ready for bed, Maggie snapped these pictures. I think this is an accurate picture of life with Miller right now.
Wednesday morning we woke up early to head for a day out in Boston. The girls wanted to make sure we enjoyed Caramel French Toast at the Paramount. So, so good...definitely going to miss this when we move. Afterwards we made the trek to the Charles River so they could see that beauty!
We then walked at least 3 miles along the Freedom Trail. Both boys were troopers, especially Austin. Because we left during morning commute I knew I couldn't get the double Bob on the train so I only took our single stroller. Miller spent majority of the time in the stroller but sweet Austin walked or scooted the entire morning. It was close to 4 miles once we made it home.
We rewarded them with a frozen lemonade in Quincy Market and a ride on the Carousel.
We then rode the ferry to Charlestown. The boys and I did a round trip but the girls got off in Charlestown to finish the Freedom Trail.
We loved the ferry. Such beautiful views of Boston while enjoying a little cool breeze on the water.
The trip home was of course tedious as most commutes are when dealing with numerous trains, 2 small children, a stroller, and 2 scooters. It was also the hottest day of the year. Temperatures rose in the mid to upper 90's. It was seriously hot...and we don't have air conditioning!!!
When the girls got home (only 30 minutes after us and they finished the Freedom Trail, that tells you how much longer it takes commuting with kids because you have to deal with elevators) they went down in the basement and got our window unit for the den. They then set the fan up to blow on them and I found them this way about 10 minutes later.
That night we went to the Red Sox game! Such a fun night. Hot, sweaty, and sticky but so fun! The girls and I had a blast!
Yes, we do all match. I have a different shirt but "little bit" has caused my belly to poke out quite a bit so my cute, fitted Red Sox shirt made me look like I had a huge beer gut so I wore David's shirt instead. I also have an awesome farmers tan from walking around Boston all day.
We finished the trip with a visit to our favorite bakery, Flour, for breakfast.
Then the girls ran into Georgetown Cupcakes for a treat to take home. The cupcakes had a difficult time getting through security but I'm sure they were delicious all the same.
It was a wonderful 4 days and one I won't forget. Thanks Maggie and Ellen for making the trip and loving on my boys and family. We love both of you so much and are so proud of the beautiful women you are becoming. Enjoy your last 6 weeks before college begins!
