Well, its that time of the year…Summer has come to an end and everyone is making their ways back to school. Where did the time go?!? It amazes me every time how fast the summer goes by.
Good Luck to everybody who started school today and those who will be starting soon!
Now, back to Bahhhston. I will just show you guys some of the highlights of the trip because I doubt any of you wants to see the 1,343,434 pictures that we took. 😉
Our plane left bright and early in the morning, and I was too excited to sleep very much at all the night before…so I caught up on some Zzz’s on the plane ride. Jessica caught me in the act:
I zonked out. hard.
We settled into our rooms,
and then set out to do a little exploring.
We walked right along the Boston Harbor, which was beautiful:
Then made our way to “Little Italy”, this cute downtown section made up of tons of delicious Italian restaurants and shops, and made a stop for dinner.
I honestly don’t even remember the name of the restaurant, but it fabulous none the less. 🙂 My sister has been to Europe and she said that this place reminded her a lot of how Europe had been.
We came back to the hotel and hit the sack. We needed to be well rested for all of the exploring that would take place!
We got a great package on a trolley tour and basically took that around the city most of the days.
One day, we went to the Aquarium. I’m sure all know, after all of my zoo pics from St Louis, that I love any kind of animal attraction. So I was so excited to go to this.
Here are some of the cool animals we watched:
fish that I wanted to take home:
I snapped this next picture at just the right time, ahaha:
Here’s some shark action for you:
Moving on to my birthday celebration! It was awesome to spend my 17th birthday in Boston. Living in the small town that I do, I don’t have a whole lot of options for fun things to do. So I got a great recommendation for a place called Douzo, a fabulous sushi place!
This was my very first sushi experience! It was SO GOOD!!!
here are my sis and I waiting to get in:
I ordered the seaweed salad to start out with. I LOVE seaweed, so was very glad to see it on the menu. Then I ordered the Scorpion Roll for my main meal. It was a combo of crab, shrimp, cucumber, and avocado made with brown rice:
What a great birthday dinner. Sushi is officially my new best friend. 🙂
Now here is a look around the city:
And I could go on and on (and on and on) but I better stop there in an effort to prevent your boredom (if you even made it this far, haha)
Oh, I do have one other picture that you guys might find amusing.
It was hard to walk away and not buy that sweat shirt. hahaha
