I just got back from a trip to Boston. What a city, I could totally live there.
Everywhere we ate was delicious, B&G Oyster House, Uni Sashimi, Doyles, Union Oyster Bar. And I had, for the first time, Blueberry beer. Yummmmmmmm.
A Red Sox game at Fenway Park, not sure it gets better than that. (AND they won!)
The shopping on Newbury Street was fabulous, but the shopping on Charles street was where we spent the majority of our money. The Red Wagon specifically. Could not buy enough from there - Lobster sweaters, sweet nightgowns, hats, shoes, ahh. I love that place. AND, I found another store that I bought HRH some TRETORNS from. Yes, I said Tretorns. Yes, I know that I am severely dating myself. I never owned a pair growing up - so it was even more exciting to buy HRH a pair. They are white with pink swishes and plaid pink and yellow ribbon laces. I want a pair.
We also stopped by the Sam Adams Brewery and took a tour. They took us through the brewery that makes a whopping 1% of their beer. See if this explains the process to you:
As we walked through history (with the occasional pub stop) in the town of Boston, we were overwhelmed with how badly we wished we had brought our kids.
Our frequent travel companions, the Payne, currently have three children and a fourth on the way. We of course, have just HRH. None of us could think of anything besides how much our children would have enjoyed this town. (Ok, and we thought about beer, too).

We stayed at the incredible Eliot Hotel in Back Bay - this was very convienent for Newbury street shopping and dining, and of course Fenway Park. Not sure if we would stay there with children though.
