The family and I went to Boston this past weekend. It's not that we live very far away, only 2 hours, but we just don't bother with the trip very often. I went many times growing up, and now it is just so expensive to get there and park, etc. And the entry costs if you do anything are high as well. But, none the less, we drove down, stayed in a hotel 2 nights and took the kids roaming. On the first day, I dragged them to the wonderful north end to retrace part of the Freedom Trail. We went into Paul Revere's home, and visited the Old North Church. If you've never been to Boston, this area is just splendid - cobblestone streets, old historic buildings, and nearly every restaurant is Italian. How bad can that be? Everywhere I looked, there were quilting inspirations...swags, and fanciful wrought iron (not photographed though), and more.
