Have I mentioned that we love Boston?!

We spent our last day of vacation touring Boston. It was probably the best day of the trip! We have been there several times over the years and we always love going back. One of our favorite places is the Boston Public Gardens where the ducks congregate...

and you can ride the swan boats across the pond:

The classic book "Make Way for Ducklings" is set in the Boston Public Gardens.

We started the day off with a water taxi ride from the airport (where we returned our rental car) back to our hotel. I was a little nervous taking Gage on a small boat, but it turned out to be very safe and lots of fun with great views of the city!

We took Gage on a hop on and off trolley tour:

He loved all the different people he could flirt with! :) We stayed on the trolley most of the time, only getting off at the Boston Public Garden (it was sooo hot that day!)

We also went on a harbor tour:

Another Boston favorite of ours is Legal Sea Foods restaurant! It's a seafood chain on the East Coast with the BEST seafood and before-dinner rolls! It is a must to eat there when we can!

Daddy is comparing Gage's new stuffed lobster with the real thing!

We ended the long, hot, wonderful day with a walk from Legal's back to our hotel. Gage was asleep by the time we got there!

Make Way for Ducklings is my all time favorite children's book. I hope someday I will be able to visit the Public Gardens. Wonderful!
