Boston Trip to Visit Friends

Good morning!  We are back from Boston and trying to get back into the swing of things.  It is always hard getting back to reality after such a fun trip.  My husband and I are both feeling a little under the weather so we are hoping that it is just the exhaustion from traveling and not something worse.  

We had the absolute best weekend with our friends in Boston.  We explored the town, relaxed, and enjoyed the beautiful weather. 

We arrived in Boston on Thursday afternoon and our friend picked us up from the airport.  We had plans to grill out at their apartment and just relax that night.  We played Hearts while hanging outside Thursday night (the weather was amazing!).

They grilled potatoes, veggies, salmon and steaks and it was all delicious!! 

We decided to walk to a nearby bar for a drink after dinner. We went to Main Street Bar and Grill, which has a fun atmosphere and yummy drinks!

Friday morning everyone but me had to work so I headed to the gym for a quick workout.  I did 30 minutes of sprint intervals on the treadmill then headed back to the apartment to make a salad for lunch.

After the boys got home from work, we all got ready and headed to the train to go downtown for the Red Sox game.  It is nice to be able to take public transportation and not have to worry about driving in such a big city.  (My husband LOVES taking public transportation… he was so excited). 😉

We took the train, the subway, and walked a little bit and then we arrived. It is so interesting how long it takes to get somewhere with public transportation.  Ofcourse, it may take longer in a car in Boston because of the crazy traffic, but we are just so used to hopping in the car and being somewhere within 10-15 minutes.  

We went to a restaurant near the stadium to post up for a couple hours before the game.  We went to Game On and got a table outside, which was great for people watching. 🙂 

A little while later, Hailey joined us after she got off work and we all had a great time chatting, drinking, and snacking before the game.  

I enjoyed a salad (forgot to take a picture) while the others split some appetizers and a pizza! 

This was our first time at Fenway Park so we were really excited!!

We had seats in the outfield, which were pretty good.  (I think I do need to get glasses soon though… ). 

We just love these two!

Fenway Park is really nice!  I love seeing different ball parks when we visit different places.  I really love baseball games out of all other sports.  I think it is because it is easy to follow and I grew up watching baseball with my dad all the time.

After the game, we hung out downtown for a little while before calling it a night.  

I’ll be back tomorrow to show you more of our trip to Boston!

Questions:

  1. How was your weekend?  Did you do anything fun?
  2. Do you like baseball?
  3. Have you ever been to Boston?  Fenway Park?

  1. I think public transportation varies hugely depending on what city you’re in. New York you can hop a subway and be almost anywhere in 10-15 minutes. Same with where I live in Philadelphia. Other cities like Atlanta Los Angeles and perhaps Boston are more spread out and more car-reliant cities with less reliable public transportation.
    This looks like such a great time–Id love to visit Boston in the summer!

    1. That is so true. I think it is more convenient depending on where you live in the city too. Our friends live a little ways out of the city so it takes some time to get there by train. Summer is the only time I will visit Boston. 🙂
