This past weekend my sister, her fiance, my boyfriend, and I went to Boston.  We got in early Friday morning.  During Friday, we explored around the city, using their T system, and we went to the aquarium.  These little penguins were the cutest!

We did a little more exploring around the boats and the beach.

On Saturday, we went to walk along a bit of the Freedom Trail, but we came across the Holocaust memorial first.  There were quotes on these glass panes from survivors.  There were the numbers on the glass, they were in tiny print and they went from the ground to the top of each tower.  It was very difficult to imagine that each number represented a person.

We did get to go along a small bit of the Freedom Trail.

We then met my friend Julie (she is this Julie) and her boyfriend Ken for lunch.  She requested a baby blanket (she saw this post and loved it) for a friend of hers a while back and I gave it to her while we were in town.  I'm still kicking myself for not getting any pictures of us together or her holding the blanket!!!  We hadn't seen each other in years and we were chatting non stop!

That night we had tickets to a Red Sox game at Fenway Park!  We went there in pedicabs!!

The Green Monster or as they say, "Monsta"
 We walked over to stand by the seats on the Green Monster.

Here's the view from our seats!!

On Sunday, my birthday, we went back to the area around the Freedom Trail. 

Paul Revere's house
I don't think this is on the Freedom Trail, but it says its the first Catholic Church in New England, founded by Italian immigrants. (not the best picture, I know)

We then went The Green Dragon (its an Irish pub that I didn't take a picture of) to watch the USA vs Brazil world cup game.  That game was SO EXCITING!!!  I couldn't handle the anxiety at times!

Then we went to the restaurant we ate at with Julie and Ken on Saturday.  We went back for my bithday, for some sangria and cake.

Sister and Fiance
Overall, an amazing trip!  I had wanted to show you some other pictures, but my sister is a little slow with uploading her pictures (teasing, but really, upload them soon! haha)
