A Day in Boston
If you have ever tried to drive in Boston, then you know it is crazy and even crazier during the workweek so the Sunday following Fourth of July we drove into the city. I was right to pick that day as the traffic was practically nonexistent. I found a parking garage on-line beforehand and we parked the car there for the day while then traveling on the T which made getting around the city so much easier. Our first stop was a bakery called Tatte which is famous for its bread and for its baked egg dish called Shakshuka which is a North African egg dish where the eggs are poached in tomato sauce with chili pepper and other spices. While we didn't order this dish you could tell they were a favorite by looking at the tables around us. The food was amazing. Afterward, we caught the T down the street and took it to the Boston Commons where the children played on the playground and water splash pad. Then we went for a ride on the famous swan boats and the children got balloons from a balloon artist who was making balloons for children in the park. It was such a lovely afternoon. We grabbed some dinner and headed back to our hotel. While we didn't see any major Boston historic sites this time (my children have been to Boston before), it was nice to wander Boston like a local. It was a perfect day for the children.
