Day 2 - Aquarium

What a day in Beantown!  We started out with early rising, a classic EWeek breakfast, and a ride in on the Greenline that all went very smoothly.  After a steady commute through Newton and under Boston, we made it to the Aquarium right on time and the kids were so excited to see the seals, penguins, pufferfish, sharks, rays, etc. etc.  After lunch in the museum we set off on foot to experience Faneuil Hall, the Paul Revere House, and the Old North Church along the famous Freedom Trail.  Spending the late afternoon in Quincy Market and enjoying dinner amongst the dozens of delicious foodshops  was a treat for everyone.  Finally, we hit Mike's Pastry Shop in the North End for a fantastic ending to a great day.  A beautiful Boston scene greeted us as we walked through the gently falling snowflakes and Christmas light lit evening back to the Haymarket T stop.  Safely at our abode in Needham the kids are engrossed in a great game of Apple to Apples as I write this.  Heather and I are contemplating the weather report of 10 inches of snow???  Enjoy the pix everyone!
