Mom visits!

What a wonderful treat that just a month into living in Boston, my mom came to visit for a whole week! I am so happy that she is here and is able to explore the city with me for a few days!

Last week we couldn't have had more beautiful weather: sunny, warm (but not hot!), breezy, perfect! And of course as soon as mom gets here, mother nature decides to give us lots of rain, clouds and much cooler temperatures. We were lucky enough to have one or two sunny days so far which allowed me to show her all around the city- we even jumped on a bay tour cruise- great way to see the harbor and the Boston skyline from the bay!
Welcome to Boston!
Beautiful day for a harbor cruise!

One of the things I really love about Boston is how easy it is to get around in the city. We are able to cover a lot of ground by combination of walking, subway, and bus, so after the first two days I was able to show mom my favorite parts of the city: downtown and the seaport area, Cambridge/Harvard, Newbury/Bolyston street, and the North End! We also took a bus tour of the historical parts of Boston and the Freedom Trail: the old state house, site of the Boston Massacre, Paul Reveres house, the USS Constitution and Old North Church (where the two lanterns were hung to notify Paul Revere the British were coming), which was a great way to see ALL that there is to see in a short time span.

I have a ton of photos to share, but here is a few (okay maybe more than a few from the last week!) Enjoy!
