People kept saying this was the oldest restaurant in America, but I haven't confirmed that.
Boston is so charming. There is no better way to describe it.
This cemetery has John Hancock, Ben Franklin's parent, and Samuel Adams all buried in it. All the gravestones were awesome and dated back to the 1700's.
We were all starving because we hadn't eaten all day (besides our car with our secret half hot dogs) but we were on our way to a Red Sox game, so we just decided to eat when we got there because we wanted to make sure we got tickets. We got to Fenway and there was a super long line to get tickets. We were planning on getting hot dogs in the park, but none of us could wait. I hear Boston has great food, but unfortunately, we only ate hot dogs the entire day. Next time, Boston. We finally got into the game, but were way to cheap to pay for anything besides "standing room". After that got old (in about 15 minutes) we sneaked down into some seats and weren't bothered the whole game. I'm learning that even though being pregnant is kinda annoying, it definitely has it's perks. I walked into the movie theater on Friday with a huge water bottle and the guy looked at it, opened his mouth, looked at my belly and then said "Enjoy your movie". Also, some guy gave me his seat on the subway when there 400 people on it, it was real nice. I've finally accepted it and it's time to start milking it as much as possible.
Anyway, Fenway Park is so fun! You can't help but feel American in there. It was a really good game, but the Sox ended up losing.
We hurried back to the station and drove about an hour to Nashua, NH where the race was.
The next day was the race set up. Everything went pretty quick and smoothly. I got real sick of people telling me that I couldn't do things. I don't know how true it is that you shouldn't lift while pregnant, but it seems to be widely accepted as fact. I felt great and obviously would have stopped if I didn't feel right, so just chill out people! That night we ate some delicious Mexican food, complete with table-side guac and went to bed. The next day was race day! It was the biggest race I had come to, over 5,000 participants. The people were way nicer than any other race I have been to. Way to be New Hampshire. After the race, we cleaned up the course, showered and hurried to catch our flight. NH is a beautiful place, and people aren't kidding when they say there are A LOT of trees.
The best part about the trip was Willy singing and dancing every minute of the day. Bre said to him, "I don't even know you, but I'm pretty sure every minute that you've been awake, you've either been singing or dancing." He fell asleep at the airport for a while and the exact minute he woke up, he was singing a little song. It was perfect. I'll miss going out on the Color Vibe trips and getting paid to travel, but I will not miss Nate working there. That job was hard on both of us and toward the end we had both had enough. Even though we still have a weird sitch going on with this new job, it's a little better and will hopefully be extremely temporary. I can't wait to live with my hubs 24-7 someday.
