Our first real day in Boston was spent checking out the sights on a trolley tour. We really like doing a city tour the first day in a new city to get our bearings and learn a little about the area.
It was our first day taking the train and Lucas was quite excited about it.
Paul was just happy to be wherever we were!
Our first glimpse of the city after our underground adventures.
I didn't get any photos on the tour since I had a baby in my lap, but it was a fun trip. We had a good guide and got a lot of interesting information under our belts.
After our tour we walked to Abigail's Tea Room and Terrace for lunch where we could see recreations of the Eleanor and the Beaver - two of the ships that carried the famous British East India Company cargo that was dumped into the harbor by the sons of liberty!
We went back to the hotel so the boys could get their afternoon naps in and in the evening, we had dinner at Victoria's Diner - a fantastic little 50's (well, opened in 1949) diner that is listed as one of "Boston's Best". Lucas had his first little milk shake, and in a fancy cup to boot! He was pretty thrilled!
Our dining experience was almost perfect - good food, good service and great company - but toward the end of our meal, we had a little toddler mishap. Poor Lucas choked on a french fry and when he gagged, he vomited on himself. He was pretty upset, but mama is always prepared. We went to the bathroom and got him cleaned up and in a new pair of pants and shirt and all was right with the world again. Poor baby! I'm just glad he was okay.
It was a good first day and we were all pooped by the time bed time rolled around - especially me! Paul had been a little party animal the night before and I didn't get any sleep until 4am when he finally conked out and then we were up again by 7 to start the day!
