Last week was spring break for me, and we did head up to Boston for PAX East. But it was also the first stop on our week-long New England road trip, and we took in as many sights as we could over the weekend. It was our second trip to Boston, so we struck out in a different direction this time.

Our hotel was across the street from Faneuil Hall, so we ate over there a lot.

I loved this market, even though it was packed and crazy when we were there.

And it was all beautiful at night.

As it turns out, Adam’s very cool cousin Lucy and her very cool husband Rishi were over from the UK on holiday. We were away when they were in NYC, but somehow we found ourselves in Boston over the same weekend. So we spent Saturday afternoon walking part of The Freedom Trail over to Boston Common and the Public Gardens so I could see the Make Way for Ducklings statues.

Site of the Boston Massacre.

Stopped for some pretty good cupcakes at Sweet Cupcakes. The birthday cake was great.

Even the cemeteries seem somehow stately and patriotic in Boston.

The Common.

The baby.

The ducks were still decked out for St. Patrick’s Day the weekend after. The Reeves can cross this statue off our bucket list, and now when H reads the story we can show her pictures of her visit.
