Well, I am super delayed with this post! I said last week that I would share the remainder of our Boston trip on Friday but when the day came and I sat down to put this together Easton wanted all of my attention. Then we spent the weekend with my husband's family and he was off until today so that also took all of my attention. But finally, my son is distracted right now (update: it's now 11:54 pm and I'm just able to come back to this) and I'm finally able to share the rest of our Boston trip today...
Saturday morning we headed out to brunch at Barcelona where Caroline's sister, Becca, is the sous chef. It was the coolest restaurant with a chill vibe. Easton has an egg allergy which prevents him, and me since I'm still breastfeeding him, from eating anything with eggs in it. Literally, anything. The server was so nice though and took the menu and crossed out all of the meals with eggs in it which made ordering a lot easier. It was still a little tricky though because brunch without eggs is kind of hard! The food was amazing and I had the best orange juice of my life there. I can't wait to go back another day when I'm not restricted by diet.
After brunch we headed out on the train to the harbor where we almost immediately stopped for another quick snack at Provisions, their ham and arugula pizza was delicious. And Easton finally ate pizza! I was so excited I immediately started texting my husband whose favorite food is pizza, he was thrilled too. After our pizza we visited the New England Aquarium and it was honestly only ok. I'm glad we were able to get in for free thanks to Caroline's sister's membership becuase the almost $30 tickets per adult are not worth it, in my opinion. It was small and so dark and really freaked Easton out. The only saving grace, and part that Easton liked, were the penguin exhibits, they had so many different breeds, that made it worth it.
After walking around the harbor for a little while we went to Christopher Columbus Park where Easton fell in love with two dogs. We took a long walk back to a train where I got some brief views of historical sites such as Quincy Market, the site of the Boston Massacre, and a quick walk along part of the freedom trail. The next time we visit I want to prioritize seeing more historical sites, history is so cool!
Our last day in Boston started with manicures for me and Caroline at the chicest nail salon, Bellacquer. Then we took Easton to a park and I set Easton free to run around a playground for the first time ever (better late than never right?). He had so much fun and was fearless in everything he wanted to do, it kills me with how fast he is growing. Afterwards we roamed around Fenway before grabbing dinner to-go at Sweet Cheeks Q (the fried chicken is amazing) and just spend time together before waking up for an early morning flight the next day.
All in all Boston is a cool city and this was one of the best trips I've ever taken. My feet recovered a week after returning from all the walking we did and I'm anxious for when we can return again!
I'm a twenty-something mama who honestly has no clue what I want to do in life at the moment. For the longest time that scared me but now I embracing it and documenting it here.
