Amy and Chris’ Boston Trip

September 25, 2012

Chris told me back in July that he was going to surprise Amy with a trip to Boston. OH MY GOSH. I was so excited when he told me, but I knew he better tell Amy FAST because I wouldn’t be able to hold that info in too long. So right when Amy got back from Africa, he told her the news, and we’ve been counting down the days ever since!

It’s funny. Because in my mind, I was thinking, “Ohh by that time, we’ll have everything figured out in Boston and know exactly where we want to take them and know all the fun places to go!!” Haha. Jordan knows where the good study spots are, and I know where some pretty kick-a playgrounds are. That was our area of expertise. So, it was AWESOME to not only have some of our bestest friends here for a weekend, but to see some parts of Boston we haven’t yet discovered.

After reading this post, you will learn that 1) you should come visit us in Boston, and 2) I will document your visit here VERY WELL and annoy all of my blog peeps with lots of pictures. So here we go!

Right after we picked up Amy and Chris from the airport, we walked to Harvard Square and grabbed burgers at The Famous Mr. Bartley’s. SO GOOD. Even though we were stuffed to the brim, we found some room for some ice cream at J.P. Licks. We walked around Harvard Undergrad a bit and then headed back home. And we all took naps. ALL of us! It was amazing.

After our amazing naps, we went to a Red Sox game. We had a blast. Amy and I were even kind of matching and she didn’t even care!! (She’s come a long way, folks).

Saturday morning, we headed downtown and walked The Freedom Trail.

All you do is follow the red line all throughout Boston – it was a pretty cool way to see so many historical things!

We liked being our own tour guides, because it allowed us to take pitstops in places like this – Sweet. Pretty tasty cupcakes. We also stopped at Quincy Market and grabbed lunch there. There was a lot going on, and it was fun to people watch. Coop especially loved the pigeons. They were just slow enough to where he thought he could almost catch them every time.

Boston Gardens! Yes, I’ve posted pictures from here before. Chris didn’t want Coop to have all the fun, so he hopped on the duck, too :)

We’re matching again.

We had a lot of down time, too. Reading books, playing with playdough, watching football. It was perfect.

On Sunday, while Jordan was studying (what a good student, right!?) the rest of us went and stuffed our faces with amazing pizza at Regina Pizzeria (Boston’s best pizza since 1926, apparently). Gooood pizza.

Then we walked around some more, and saw the harbor. It was just the most perfect weather, too. Total bonus.

Kind of a jumping fail picture… Amy looks like a stiff ballerina (a cute one though!), and I just look like I’m trying to fly or something.

Sunday night, we got dessert at Finale, and then hung out at John Harvard’s Brewery for a bit. These two are ridiculous and hilarious.

It was so good to have a little piece of Texas brought to us. And it was so much fun to share our new home with Amy and Chris, and show them the things we see every day. My heart is full, and I’m ready for our next visitors!!
