We're back from Boston!

We had a great time visiting Pete's parents and grandmother (aka Nana). We got in late last night and our luggage didn't make it. We weren't mad because our first flight was late getting to Philadelphia and they held the plane for us so we could make it to State College. We knew the luggage wouldn't get there. Thank you, US Airways! It was great to sleep in our own beds and not in some airport hotel!

Here is Kendall waiting for the taxi at the airport in Boston.
She was so grown up pulling her little carry-on. And both kids were excellent travelers! I think they felt pretty special.

On Saturday, we went to the Aquarium with their Nanny, my mother-in-law. My father-in-law was in a conference all day Saturday. We took the 'T' from Cambridge to Boston where the aquarium is located. Here is Pete, his mom, Kendall and Clayton waiting for the train at the Harvard station.

The aquarium was a lot of fun. The kids loved the penguins and turtles. After the aquarium, we had lunch at Legal Seafood. Here are some more pics from the day.

On Sunday, we went to the Boston Children's' Museum with Nana. It is a great place to take kids of all ages.

All in all, we had a good visit. Pete was able to do a lot of stuff around the house for his parents and just spend some good, quality time with them. We know it won't be much longer until Pete's mom won't remember us or recognize her grand kids. I really want my kids to know both sets of grandparents. And I feel like they are so blessed to have a great-grandmother. She is 93 years young (will be 94 in July).
Here's to family!!!

Wonderful. Sounds like you and your family had a spectacular time. And big ups to Nana, looking marvelous at 93.

Great blog!

It sounds like you had a really nice time in Boston....there's just one problem...I don't know if I can continue to read this blog after finding a picture of a Boston Red Sox hat. I am a Yankees fan=)

NYKAT--that is so funny. We stepped out of the Aquarium and it was really sunny. The hats were only $5! They ONLY had BOSTON stuff for sale. My father-in-law grew up in Brooklyn--he's a Yankee fan.
