boston in the fall

one week in boston, mass.

i went to boston for a week with eden and my mom to visit my sweet sister.
it is such an amazing time to visit.
the leaves are all different colors and the farmers markets are filled with autumn delights.
the weather is that perfect cold.
the cold that you can still enjoy outdoor walks through the city and than cozy up to a warm fire at night.
we did that.
lots of outdoor strolls and then warming our tootsies up to the fire at night.
we consumed lots of hot chocolate and donuts from dunkin donuts, of course.
did you know there are 104 dunkin donuts in the boston area?
i learned that while i was there.
boston has so much charm, so much history, and so many grave yards.
i am so glad that my sister lives there so when i get sick of the boring arizona desert,
i can go visit her :)

sleepy hallow graveyard.
concord, mass.
my sister's home town.
my niece aubrie collecting the giant fall leaves.
eden enjoying the fall leaves all around her.
my brother in law barry, my mom, my sister danielle, and eden bear strolling the through the graveyard.

eden taking in all the sights while riding on the famous duck tour.

the boston common covered in leaves.

the real music man.
he was playing all these instruments while singing margaritaville.

the finish line of the great boston marathon.
someday i will cross it.
if i can ever qualify, that is. sheesh.

eden fell in love with my sister's dog tilly even though the dog bit her hand.
they sort of developed a love/hate relationship.

thank you danielle for a pleasant back east trip.
and thank you to all my friends and family who helped take care of
my jack and ava while i was away.
