Summertime Fun

This past weekend we had our best family outing yet!  All day long I was holding my breath waiting for a toddler meltdown, a diaper blow out, or some kind of gushing wound that we were ill-equipped to deal with (it seems like all family outings have to include at least one of the above, right?) but it never happened. Both kids were cooperative for the entire long day, the weather was gorgeous, and we all had a wonderful time. 

First we took the subway to the New England Aquarium where we got in for free using passes Nick & Moses won at the Lynn Family Fitness 3K last year!  I think Moses was the perfect age for the aquarium.  He loved pressing his face to the glass and shouting "Hey!  Fish!"  He seemed to really expect the fish to talk to him. 

After we finished at the aquarium we wandered around the city a bit looking for a place to eat lunch that was not swarming with summer tourists.  We ended up stumbling upon a fabulous park that was practically deserted.  And to top it all off, both children fell asleep while we were strolling through the park, so Nick and I got to have lunch together in peace and quiet :)
