Boston Diaries: Freedom


My last day in Boston was relaxing, silly, yummy, historical and colonial! (I kind of have an obsession with "colonial" as a word after loving a hat I tried on in Epcot after the Princess half. Yesterday I found a charm for a necklace that was one of those adorable tri-tip hats. I'm sure that's not the official name, but I like it. So now I have my colonial souvenir!

To round out our most spectacular vacation we finished off the Freedom Trail. We saw things like the Old North Church, toured Paul Revere's home, went on board the USS Constitution and relaxed on the grass up at Bunker Hill. I also had my first ever gelato in the little Italy area of Boston... Or as I like to call it... my future home!

We decided to finish off the week in our favorite style with yet another "picnic" on the bed while watching the Red Sox. I think that was just perfect!

It's been a fabulous experience! It exceeded all expectations and hopes I could have ever had. I cannot wait for a chance to go back!
