Eltons Visit Boston- Day 1

My (Jen's) sister, Melissa, made the trek East to Boston with her family to visit us. We were soooo excited! This was a first since we usually travel West to Oregon to see them.

The first full day we took them on the "T" (train) downtown to the Boston Common to see our favorite kid's singer SteveSongs, but the weather was HOT! and we were melting:) It was a long day as we tried to do too many things with young children on a hot day. But, luckily we brought the kids' swimsuits to take a dip in the Frog Pond in the Commons! We missed the Duck Tours which was our main goal of the day. SOLD OUT. ARGHHHH! Get them early, we advise!

We went indoors to cool off and watch WALL-E which I thought was strange and a blaring commentary on environmental issues. The kids seemed to enjoy it, though.....well, those that stayed awake;) Then we took them to Quincy Market/Faneuil Hall and got dinner and ice-cream. OK, so it was my idea b/c I was starving and everyone grudgingly went along. I think all of the walking and heat did us in! Boston by fire! (well, they really didn't get to see much of Boston....sorry guys).
