On Independence Day, in the EARLY morning hours, we shipped off to Boston. We arrived in the city at Logan Airport at about noon and took a bus and then a train to the closest station to our hotel. Unfortunately, it was still close to a mile walk, carrying all the bags. At check in, we noticed the sign for their free airport shuttle. Whoopsie!
After a brief nap (read: adults slept but the kids did not), we went out to see the sights of Boston, with the highlight being the free Boston Pops concert at the Charles River Esplanade.

|It was seriously sooooooo hot out!!!!!|
We decided to forgo calling the hotel shuttle to pick us up since it was so crazy busy in the city. Instead, we walked a little over 2 miles back to the hotel. I promised the kids that we would stop for ice cream, but surprisingly, there weren't any shops along the way. We compromised with some frozen treats from the Seven-Eleven. Kids are so easily fooled...
When we got back to the hotel, I checked my FitBit and saw that we had walked 8.42 miles that day. For me, that's no biggie but for a seven and five year old, I am SUPER impressed....
