Can you tell that I don't have a computer? My computer broke just before we moved here. Spencer on the other hand bought a brand new spanking computer to take to school for important law notes, while I have been stuck with an iPod touch. It's better than nothing, but by the end of a day of searching the web and online window shopping my thumbs are a little sore :) -- which brings me to the reason for the lack of blogging since we have moved here...
Anyway, back to Beantown...
So Spencer's sister Amy joined us for fall break. She flew into Syracuse and was able to spend a few days with us in Ithaca to see our stomping grounds before we made the drive to Boston. It was nice to have her join us for fall break so that we could have some structure to our vacation. When I travel there isn't really much of a plan except where I plan to eat, Amy however knew of a lot of neat places to see and things to do.
Me driving while Spencer "studies" and Amy keeps Drew happy in the back seat.
Somehow I got between the house on wheels and the lady that drives behind it with the flashing lights. She was pretty mad about it but I thought it was one of the top 10 moments of the 5 hour drive.
Boston is full of so much history. We spent 5 days there and still didn't get to see everything we wanted to (or eat at every place I wanted to)... (I guess that's our excuse to go back) When we got in to Boston after our drive we first stopped at Lexington Battle Green. This is where the British first fired on the militiamen to begin the American Revolution. Drew had a lot of pent up energy and had fun running around the lawn.
He was running around the leaning tombstones and falling every 3 feet from the uneven ground. Some of the headstones dated back to the early 1700's.
We tried to squeeze in one more thing to visit before we headed back to the hotel, however we were a few minutes too late. The State Park closed and the Park Ranger on duty was seriously starving for conversation. He was a nice guy. He told us about his days at Yellowstone, Lake Powell, and every other state park in between. When Drew started to get a little fussy from standing around for an hour he tried to perk him up with showing him the lights on his cruiser. Didn't really work, but whatever.
