Greg and I went to Boston this past week to meet up with his parents who drove over from a sojourn in Philadelphia.  We had lots of time to venture out and see the city and its outskirts. 
Boston is the perfect juxtaposition of the old and the new.

Aboard the U.S.S. Constitution
"Old Ironsides" is the nation's oldest commissioned warship.  It's pretty awesome.

 Following the continuous red brick line, we walked "The Freedom Trail" through town.

When we visited Bunker Hill, I snapped a pic of this memorial at the Connecticut Gate because of what it says at the bottom.  It is a simple reminder of the values our country was founded on.
(And one quick word of advice... If you ever visit Boston, make sure to climb Bunker Hill on your last day, because a million stairs later, your legs will be very sore for a long time.)

Boston is a busy place.

Our only group shot.
Taken at the place where the "shot heard around the world" was fired.

We saw many of our founding fathers' grave sites.

My favorite part of Boston was its rich, historical significance.  Greg's favorite part of Boston was probably Fenway Park.  So, you can expect some baseball pictures in an upcoming post. 

Until we meet again, Boston . . . you're a pretty great place.
