a boston thanksgiving, part one.

since john's aunt jayme, ryan and janessa, the harman fam, and us are all stranded out east for thanksgiving, george and leslie flew in and we made the most of it.  we all crammed into sweet jayme's two-bedroom apartment and had a blast!  the first day we went to faneuil hall market, ate delicious lobster rolls and clam chowder, looked in pretty little shops (see cupcake christmas tree below), and played on the pier.

we drove past the beautiful boston temple:

then we went to bunker hill memorial, and while the girls slept in the car with mimi, john and i hiked the 294 steps to the top.  

you can see all over boston from up there.
we saw the minute-men bridge, where the "shot heard round the world" was shot.  there are several homes where literary greats have lived right around that area, including ralph waldo emerson, who wrote the "concord hymn" commemorating the battle, which he actually witnessed with his own eyes! {i will have it be known that hazel requested a silly-face picture, and then didn't join me^^^}

there you have it!  day one of our boston thanksgiving.
