boston was wicked good

dad and i went to boston this summer for our annual daddy-daughter trip and it was wicked good (as the name of the post suggests...). i spent the week before had watching good will hunting (and other movies staring matt damon or ben affleck...) to prepare for the didn't really help, however i am now pretty proficient at the classic boston accent! (so in warning, some of my spelling might look wrong, but it's use's more fun that way...) dad is a big fan of the guided tour, so we took the orange and green trolleys around the city and learned so much more about boston than we would have just trucking ourselves! (look up the boston molassacre if you don't believe me)

we started our trip at fenway
(because sam adams was closed...go figure...
after an hour of trying to get there...can't wait
to see that cell phone bill...)

it was by far my favourite part of the entire trip!

dad actually volunteering to have his picture taken

i looked like a loon with my canon and cell taking pictures
but i was really digging the self portrait...

a rare gem, smiling with teeth and not looking crazy...

i love this picture

taken ironically as an inside joke,
but i love it!
and it's the only picture of the two of us!

on the harbah tour

the fence of the graveyard where sam adams,
paul revere and john hancock are buried

ol' ironsides

which sounds like machine gun fire,
it was terrifying...

sam adams summer ale
refreshing after a long day of walking!

dad and 'tecumsah'
at cheers

funny story, where dad's cell phone went off in the middle of the presentation
while it was in my backpack and i looked like an ass...

 harvard gates
'enter to grow in wisdom'

cemetery in salem

the only 'witch' to be pressed to death...
no thank you...

i think one of the trolley drivers said that there were like 45
dunkin' donuts in one square mile in boston,
which is the birthplace of the chain...


so, that was our trip in photos! we had a fantastic time (except for the drive home, which has made me hate being in cars...) and are already thinking of places to go next year!
