Boston: Part 2 (Freedom Trail)

We walked a lot in Boston, it was probably good to try and combat the mass amount of calories we ate. We started one of our days by climbing the Bunker Hill Monument.  I carried the stroller up the 300 stairs which was kind of awkward. My calves were a little shaky after we got down.
After we hydrated we followed the Freedom Trail around Boston. Seriously the freedom trail is the best idea ever. I don't know if other cities have a similar thing (Salem, MA does) but the idea is perfect. You just tell tourist to get on the red brick path and follow it around the city. The freedom trail is about 2.5 miles with nearly 20 historic sites along the way.
The freedom trail took us all sorts of places. The Old North Church where the lanterns were to be hung that go with the famous "One if by land, and two if by sea" which led to Paul Revere's midnight ride.  The freedom trail led us to the USS Constitution- the world's oldest floating commissioned naval vessel.
 We hopped off the trail just for a minute to get some delicious cannolis at Mike's Pastry in the North End district of Boston.
the place was busy, and the cannolis were delicious.
The freedom trail led us right to a park downtown that Drew figured was the highlight of the trip.

SUCH A FUN TRIP! Okay, love the hat. Love the bangs. Love the yellow jacket. Love how hot you are. Love Drew (i'll have you know that my name was going to be Drew if I was a boy).

Also, love the Leopard pants. Find out where she got them and where them on your next trip, please?
