Well, kiddies, sorry its been so long. But Momma was off playing tourist.
Yes, my mother-in-law was in Boston all last week (which, trust me, I would love to add some hilarious “how much I hate my mother-in-law” jokes in here but that damn woman makes it impossible not to love her…she’s totally cramping my style). So, along with the husband, the three of us fastened our fanny packs, slung our ostentatious Nikons around our necks and hit this city up right (meaning cocktails at 2 p.m. and lunch at 4:30).
It’s safe to say that after seven days, we left no tourist attraction un-photographed. We hit up the Public Garden, the Boston Common, hopped on the Duck Tour, walked around that one really old church on that one really old road, did the Cheers to Cheers walk (well, some of us did the Cheers to Cheers stumble…not that I’m naming any particular mother-in-law of mine in particular…Kathy).
But perhaps my favorite was the aquarium. One, because I got to touch a stingray (OK, it was more like “poked” a stingray, but in my defense, they were refusing to come close to the surface and skim my hand so I took matters into my own index finger) and two, it made me really glad I wasn’t there as a chaperone on a field trip with 85 loud and surprisingly aggressive fifth-graders (one of whom almost told on me for poking the stingray…the brat).
But a picture is worth a thousand words, eh? So, please to enjoy, my boring photo slideshow below (just click on them for a bigger view):
