In downtown Boston, our first stop was to snap a shot of the Cheers restaurant... or at least some sign that makes you think you're at the real thing. Who knows.

Then, we started down the Freedom Trail, which weaves you through downtown Boston for about three miles, to see many of the historical sites of the city. 

Here is the supposed burial of Benjamin Franklin:

Some other sites of the city... don't remember what they are, though:

This was the North End of Boston, which is basically a Little Italy! It was cool to wander in and out of little Italian stores, finding all kinds of REAL Italian products... like, PANNA... my favorite!

Statue of Paul Revere:

The Bunker Hill Monument from a distance:

This is me with my jelly-legs after climbing up the 294 steps of the Bunker Hill Monument, and then back down. Can you believe I forgot to take my camera up there with me? I almost went back up a second time, just to get some photos of the view. Almost. My legs probably would have collapsed under me at some point going up or coming back down. 

We were so happy that we were able to make it to the Boston Temple. It had the most gorgeous stained glass in shades of blue. It was beautiful!

We were able to meet up with one of my childhood friends, Christine, and her husband Ross. We enjoyed their company and had some good laughs with them. They are both incredible musicians, and we had hoped to attend one of their gigs while we were in Boston, but that didn't work out this time. If you're interested, you can check out Christine's first solo album here. I was excited to hear that she'll have her next CD out next summer. We were so happy to meet up with her and Ross! It was the perfect way to end our stay in Boston.

Yay! Such a fun trip! My first thought was "did they get to see Christine?". Awesome you did! Jealous of all the autumn you got to soak up!
