Have you ever had one of those days where all seemed well with the world? That was my day on Saturday. I knew that both Emma and Chloe were working on Sunday so we decided to celebrate Mother’s Day on Saturday. The six of us hopped into the car and headed into the city to pick up Megan.
Our first stop was at Mike’s Pastry OMG! We’ve lived here our entire lives and we’ve never been before!! (well, Megan has since she’s our true Bostonian). It was worth the 40 year wait and I can’t wait to go back!! Just look at this yummy, mint cannoli……
We got a big box full of cannolis, cheesecake and chocolate chip cookies. Calories do not count on Mother’s Day!
We sat by the waterfront and talked for about an hour and of course we had to take pictures.
Then we walked through the North End, which again was a first for Jon and I. I’m not sure why we’ve never been there before but, in my opinion, it’s one of the nicest area’s in Boston.
We walked over to Faneuil Hall where Megan ran into an old friend’s mom. She was so cute! She told Megan that on the train ride over she was wondering if she would run into her. What do you know? In a huge crowded city there was Megan. Beckett kept telling Megan “I love your new town”. After many trips into the city this also felt new to Beck.
It seemed like Boston woke up with the flowers this weekend. The hustle and bustle of the city combined with the quiet of the waterfront made for a pretty perfect spring day in the city.
This motherhood job that I have is pretty fantastic! I feel so blessed to call this crew mine.
(can you tell Beck was happy to have a few hours with his big sister?)
