Mom Camp is Boston Bound, Day 16

Mom Camp hit the road again when the Captain and I took the kiddos to New England.  The first stop was Boston– colonial Mecca.

We started the day at the Boston Commons and then made a visit to the Swan Boats.  The short and inexpensive yet entertaining ride was a hit with the kids. We even saw a real swan.

The next stop was the duck statue based on the book MAKE WAY FOR DUCKLINGS.  

 Despite a little rain, we started off on The Freedom Trail.

  

We also saw all the typical spots…The Old South Meeting House, The Old State House, The Site of the Boston Masacre, Paul Revere’s House and quotes number of gravesites of our famous founding fathers.

I missed the Old North Church while I waited in a 30 minute line for the bathroom.  but, thankfully The Captain showed the kid around the building.

We also made it to the Navt Yard at Charlestown and walked aboard the USS Constitution.  In fact at the Navy Yard we signed a copper plate that will places inside the Constitution when it’s restoration is complete.

The Boston tour ended with dinner in the famous Italian North End!
