Boston, Day 3

Dan had a business meeting this morning and Courtney and I toured Boston College.  This left the boys home to sleep in, watch TV and pick up donuts in the neighboring mall for breakfast. They were in heaven.

Boston College was a beautiful campus with cool architecture. As a Jesuit University, it's pretty religious and and we loved that the Worship Wagon would take you to your place of worship on Sundays.

After our tour we took the train back to Boston (unfortunately the longest, slowest route) and met everyone at Boston Gardens. The Gardens is the setting for "Make Way for Ducklings." Love that book! We rode the swan boats and played on the grass and then headed to Fanueil Hall to Boston Chowda' for dinner. Highly recommended as the best Clam Chowder in Boston, it didn't disappoint and we went back for seconds.

That night we walked over to Fenway Park in a downpour for a Red Sox game. What a great stadium! We loved going to all the MLB games and have a plan to go to more each summer.  So wish we had a Major League team in Utah. The Bees are fun, but not quite the same excitement!
