Boston Here I come

I am so excited right now you have no idea. I just bought my plane tickets for my trip to CT to visit my mom ALONE!!! Yes that's right Im going to the east coast with no Hubby or Kids for a full week. Just me, myself and I with my mom :)
Last time I saw my mom was last year when we all went to her house as a family vacation, before that was a year before right after Skyla was born(they came here), and before that it had been about 8 years since I seen her. We have gotten really close over the past few years witch is nice cause I never had that with her before. My mom is so outgoing and has a crazy personality, Mick says Im just like her but I think she is way more out spoken then me.

Anyways Mom and I have been planning what we are going to do wile Im there (yep this is where I get my far in advance planning skills from). One thing I know for sure is we are going to Boston MA. for the day. A few things we are doing that Im really excited about are......

1. We are hitting the Yankee Candle factory

2. We are going to Down town Boston and the Boston harbor.
I love history so this is right up my allie. We are going to the sight where the Boston tea party took place and going on this really cool thing called The Freedom Trail. Its a 2.5 mile walk seeing 16 historical sights, one of witch is Paul Revere's house. Here is the link if you want to check it out more. O and everyone is dress in old fashion cloths of the 1600's

3.Then we are going to the New England aquarium. ( I know we can do this with the kids but it will be nice to enjoy it with out having to wonder if someone is running off LOL).

4. Shopping at Fanueil Hall and the Boston Pewter Company (I hear it has some amazing frames, tea pots and candelabras)

5. I would like to eating some time during the day at this place called Clink, witch is the bottom level of The Liberty Hotel but is better know as the Charles Street Jail. Yep this place used to be a working jail in the late 1850's. Here is a link giving a little more info about it.

Im not going till September so I have a few month to wait but Im just so excited that I have my tickets and that means Im really going. I love my family I have no idea what Im going to do with out them for a week. I know I will probably cry the first night not being able to tuck in my kidos, but MAN DO I NEED A BREAK!! Every mom deserves a vacation and I feel so blessed I get to have one.
O and I have to give him his credit This was all MICK's Idea!! Dont I have such a wonderful hubby :)

I'm so jealous!

1. That you get to spend a whole week on the east coast. I've never been there (outside JFK airport) and I've always wanted to. Especially Boston.

2. That you get to see your mom.

3. That you get a whole week without the kiddos! (Actually I'm not jealous for this reason right now, but if I had two kids those ages, I would be.)

I'll bring you something back :)
and you have to plan a trip when you can to the east coast it so cool. Best part of this I got my tickets for only $250 round trip.

I'm jealous too!

I know it sounds selfish, but sometimes I think of how nice it will be when our kids are old enough to leave at grandma's and Jon and I can just fly off to Europe for our second honeymoon. We didn't have much of a first honeymoon, so I guess it would be, like, our REAL honeymoon!

I'm so excited for you. It sounds like a fun trip. I'd like to go to the East coast one day. I think it'd be fun to have lobster in Maine and go to a play on Broadway.

I love Boston, Crystal you are going to love it. And those are all perfect things to do. And you have to ask someone there for directions because it is funny how people are really not so friendly in Boston. Have fun!
