Last weekend Travis and I had the chance to go to Boston to visit Michelle and Sean and sweet MAGGIE! It was a super last minute trip because we weren't sure if they would still be in town over the weekend. So Thursday night we booked our bus tickets and found a place to stay for a few nights, and after work on Friday we took off :).

Normally we would buy BOLT bus tickets but since it was so last minute they were all sold out and we had to go with the Chinatown bus LUCKY STAR......not so lucky. It was kind of a bummer because all week in NY it had been overcast and rainy and that Friday the sun was finally out and we were stuck on a bus, not just a bus, but a bus with NO A/C. It was sweltering in there and we couldn't even crack a window finally Trav asked the bus driver if he could pop open the emergency things on the top of the bus and boy did that make all the difference. Not only that but THREE times the bus stalled on the FREEWAY, we had to pull over and then cross our fingers that the bus would start again. It was just one of those things that you have to laugh because you can't do anything about it.

We finally made it to Boston and found the apartment we rented just fine. In fact when we showed up the owner upgraded us from the plain bed and bath to the actual apartment with a living room and kitchen too. It was so nice :).

Saturday morning we headed over to the Children's Hospital in Boston to see little Mags.
She is so freaking adorable, she was having kind of a rough day and wasn't super happy but she was hooked to so many wires and things who would be. We pretty much spent a lot of time at the hospital holding Maggie, getting updates and visiting with Michelle and Sean, it was fun to be there with all of them.
We took Mags for a walk in the courtyard of the hospital she was so tired...... zzzzzzzz
We did however get to go out for a few hours with Michelle and Sean to get them out of the hospital for a little bit. We walked to Fenway park which was really cool to see!
We found FREE cotton candy at Bestbuy :).
Went to Fanuil Hall in downtown Boston had dinner and walked around.
Also walked around Copley Place to window shop and just see the city.
I really LOVED Boston, from what I saw I would love to go back and see more. It was clean, green and historic. It was a lot of fun! Thanks Michelle, Sean and Maggie for a great weekend!!!
Maggie with a big smile :).

I'm glad you guys were able to go to Boston and see Maggie. I love that last picture of her with her big smile. She is soooo cute!! The ride over to Boston didn't sound like so much fun, but looks like you guys had another fabulous time on yet another fantastic getaway! Lucky ducks! oh P.s. Travis is a big goof and I love that picture of him with the cotton candy. I'm sure he was all about that free cotton candy!
