I am going to journal my entire trip to Boston because I really want it for my records. I am going through some major post vacation, post marathon depression so hopefully writing about our adventure will help boost my spirits. This blog has basically turned into my journal but feel free to follow along and read about our adventures if you'd like. I know my Sister will be reading right Amber? ;)
We got into Boston around 5:30pm on Thursday night and made our first attempt at figuring out the subway system. My Mom is from a ghost town of about 100 people and I grew up in small town as well so navigating the big city life was definitely a little intimidating. Fortunately we met an incredibly nice (and very good looking) Bostonian who noticed how naive looking we were and took complete pity on us. He helped us get to our hotel and we were feeling like complete rockstars after our 3 different colored subway transfers.
|Only picture from Thursday but it's a good one. The Bostonian made certain that my Mom got the "priority seating" spot on the Subway for the elderly. hahaha I had to take a picture.|
Friday morning I woke up and went running. I was just slowly slogging along when all of a sudden I realized I was on the campus of Harvard!! I was in awe. It was absolutely gorgeous and made me feel smart for a brief minute. I snapped some pictures, walked around for a bit and then that minor smartness was shattered once I realized I had managed to get myself completely lost. Luckily Bostonians are very nice people and helped direct me back to my hotel.
As soon as I found my way back to the hotel and my Dad got into town we hit up the city. My Dad is a total trooper and even though he flew in on the red eye and hadn't slept a wink he didn't want to waste a second.
