Boston – part two

After the big kids come from Aquarium School, we hear their excited stories of what they did in class that day. Then we have free time to explore Boston. We like to go to Legal Seafood restaurant. They have delicious seafood and are very kid-friendly.

There are many wonderful museums in Boston. We’ve been to the Boston Children’s Museum – love it! The Museum of Science is a great place to spend a day or two! For a tour of the city, be sure to try the Duck Tours.
A combination land and river tour – they even let Jor Man drive while on the river.

A little farther out, in Sudbury, Massachusetts, we discovered Longfellow’s Wayside Inn. This is the oldest running inn in America. There is a mini-museum inside. But my favorite part is the tavern. It is the oldest part of the inn. Jor Man was so interested in the tavern and its furniture that he kept the barkeep busy answering his questions. The friendly barman showed my kids secret passageways and hiding places where children were kept safe in Indian attacks! There is a dining room and a gift shop, as well. But I recommend spending a while in the tavern and just feeling like you’ve gone back in time. The cheese plate was delicious. We’ve gone back several times.

Henry Ford (yes, THE Henry Ford) fell in love with the place – bought and restored it. He added a reproduction Grist Mill that is nearly the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. Your kids will love seeing it in action. They give tours. Mr. Ford also built a chapel, and had the actual schoolhouse about which “Mary Had a Little Lamb” was written moved to the site.

And I promise, in the next post, to tell you about the hotel we stay in!

Thanks for visiting my blog!

I may have a lot of questions for you if I do it again. A lot of prayer is needed in this direction. Now that my soon to be husband will be working at home, I'll have a lot of help, and he'd be so much better at it than me ;)

My hubby works from home and it IS super helpful. But I've read your blog, and you would be wonderful at it - despite what you may think. You already give your kids freedom to be themselves. So cool. Congrats on your upcoming marriage.
