Boston Anniversary Trip

It's always been our tradition to go away just the two of us each year for our anniversary, and this year was no different. We picked Boston this year since I found cheap tickets using vouchers we had from a previous trip to Florida. Both of us had never been so we were pretty excited. 
The plane ride up was great. I normally wouldn't say that about a plane ride but the last 3 we've taken have been with a busy baby or toddler, so this was a nice break. I could just listen to my music (Bethel songs on repeat) and enjoy. 
 The first thing we did was take the T to get some lunch at Anna's Taqueria. Afterwards we took a cab to our hotel and spent the rest of the day just relaxing. Another thing that pre-baby we wouldn't have thought was a big deal, but hot tub and dinner by ourselves was pretty fun, even if it just was Panera. We didn't feel like going back into the city since our hotel was a little further out than we expected, so we just watched a movie in the hotel room. 
 That next morning we ventured out into the city. It was really windy, and kinda cold but at least the sun was shinning. 
 We spent most of the day just walking around exploring and sightseeing. We walked most of the Freedom Trail, which was really neat. Lots of history about our country's beginnings. 
Across from Quincy Market we found a little Boston Marathon museum. I told Clarke this is the closest I'll get to ever running Boston, ha! 
 Then we headed to the north end for dinner. We had dinner at Nico, and it was fabulous. We got pastries at Modern Pastry to take back to our hotel. 
I wish we could have made it to Harvard, maybe next time. The next morning we flew out to celebrate Easter with our families. 

I'm always thankful for time just the two of us, regardless where we are. Thankful my mom could watch Chloe for us.
