Happy Thanksgiving

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving in Boston.
It was a beautiful day.  After a lazy morning watching the parade, we ate a light lunch, and headed to the park.

Once Chance took his afternoon nap, we went to our friends' Adam and Julie's apartment.  Her mom was in town and cooked us a delicious Thanksgiving meal.  We have spent every Thanksgiving with Adam, and the last two with Julie and her mom as well.

The weekend before, we went down to Faneuil Hall to see the Christmas tree and lights.  It was so pretty!

The weekend after Thanksgiving, John and I decided we wanted some of our family's yummy dishes.  We ate while watching the Egg Bowl....which did not turn our how we hoped!  Our meal was delicious though and we enjoyed the leftovers for several days after.

We have so much to be thankful for!

Groovy Baby

Chance and I took a music class through Groovy Baby Music, called Music Together.  A friend recommended it to us and we loved it.  The class met once a week for 9 weeks and was just a short walk down the street from our apartment.

Each week, we sang songs, had a lullaby time, and got to play with a variety of instruments.  Chance loved to run around the room dancing, clapping, and laughing throughout each class.  

We made friends, learned new songs, and had so much fun!

Marge and Big D

We had a great time with Marge and Big D.  They got in late Wednesday night and stayed until Sunday morning and we had so much fun.

 Thursday we had a nice mix of laziness and outings.  We strolled around the neighborhood, went in some local shops, and ate lunch at Zaftig's (one of our faves!).  Late that afternoon, Mom and I took Chance to the park. 

Friday we accompanied Dad to the Sam Adams Brewery.  He has been trying to get here for the past few visits so we were glad he finally got to mark this one off of his list.  We attempted a trip to Macy's after this but we quickly learned that nap always trumps shopping!  Friday night we enjoyed a delicious meal at Island Creek Oyster Bar...soo good!!

Saturday was a beautiful fall day.  John and Dad headed off to the Harpoon Brewery while Mom, Chance, and I went to the Public Garden.  They boys thoroughly enjoyed their beer tasting and tour while we had a great time letting Chance run free and also feed the ducks.  We met up for lunch on Newbury Street at Joe's.  John took Chance back to nap while Mom, Dad, and I did a little shopping.  We ended our trip in the North End for a stop by Mike's. This was another Boston experience Dad had been waiting for and he and Mom got to have the true "Mike's experience" of lines around the block, packed inside, and then the delicious cannolis.  John cooked us a wonderful steak dinner that night. 

Sunday morning came way too quickly.  We had such a fun time with Marge and Big D!
