Make Way For Ducklings.....and Grace

We have been reading Make Way for Ducklings at night to Grace for the past couple weeks.  She just loves this book so we decided to spend the day in Boston yesterday and see the ducklings in person.  When I worked in Boston and spent a couple hours a day driving back and forth I never wanted to drive into Boston on the weekends.  Now I look forward to going into Boston, especially to spend the day with my girls. 

We started our day walking along the Rose Kennedy Greenway to Fanueil hall for a bite to eat for lunch and then back to the Greenway for a quick carousel ride.  The Greenway is still under consruction in some areas but it is going to be a really nice space for families when it is complete.  

Then it was off to to the Public Graden to meet the ducks.  First we had to say hello to "Michael" though, Grace was very impressed that he now has a horse.

It was a bit crowded around the ducks but Grace patiently waited her turn and finally got her turn to sit on mama duck.

We finished up the day with a swan boat ride

Looks like a wonderful time. My son works in Boston, commuting first to Concord and then taking the bus from there to South Station, so it's a crazy life, but what does he do every once in a while? Take his wife and son to Boston to show them around, of course. It really is a great walking city, and when it's warm out, there's always something special going on.
