Our internet has been out for about two weeks. Long story (let's just say we're not big fans of comcast customer service), but we finally got it back today. I've been wanting to post, as I've been backlogged with photos and thoughts, but for today I'm just posting quickly about our weekend.
Generally, I love rainy days, especially in October. Moody weather in October is perfect for sparking the Halloween spirit. However, on the weekends, I prefer sunny weather to get out with the family and enjoy the autumn atmosphere. Our weekend plans were to go apple picking and to visit Castle in the Clouds in Moultonborough, NH, but with continual rain, I did not feel like going mucking around in mud to pick apples. I love the outdoors, but am not a dirty outdoors kind of girl. Change of plans and it was to Boston we went instead! This is exactly why I wanted to move near Boston - so that during inclement weather, particuarly in the winter, we would have a big city near us and would have easy access to museums.
We have a membership to the Museum of Science, which I recommend if you ever find yourself in Boston, so we spent some time there. The museum itself straddles the cities of Boston and Cambridge and its got an amazing view of the Charles River.
Another thing I love about moody weather - taking photos of moody skies!
We also went traipsing around the city.
Part of my family walking the streets of Boston.
And we hit Quincy Market for some Italian ice and ice cream.
Thank you, Boston, for saving our rainy weekend! I am in love with this city.
