This first stop was at Harvard. Supposedly if you rub this statue's shoe it is supposed to bring you good luck. It is a beautiful campus!
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's home. Basically i concluded that i'm one of those really cool people who loves museums and history...and i really want to live in a colonial house!
This was the Bunker Hill Memorial.
i probably should have read this sign before i headed up. Katie and i just about died going up. ha ha ha. We didn't realize what we were getting ourselves into...294 stairs, nonstop. i'm still sore, and obviously out of shape. But give us a break, we did it in about 6 minutes. Although, the 3 boys did it in about 4 minutes and weren't sore at all.
Boston's skinniest house, and the smallest one i've ever seen! it's called the "Spite House" because the man who built it did so that his neighbor could not recieve any sunlight. it's about 10 feet wide, and someone actually lives in it!
This is a neat, super old cemetary we stopped in with the steeple of the Old North Church in the background. (You may recognize it from National Treasure! =0) i watched that on the plane, just so i was all caught up in my history! ha ha ha!) And below is the Trinity Church. They have the most amazing architecture here! it is all so beautiful!
BOATING! Who would have thought?! My uncle's friends took us to Lake Webster where we had a grand old time. it was so nice to be in the SUN!!! i've definately been longing that! We had some fun tubing and just hanging out on the boat all day. i have a nice burn on my thighs- they have not seen sun in a long time!
