New England Vacation, Part 2

Odd as it seems to be kicking off my "new", combined blog with a "Part 2" post, let's just go with it...

Once the wedding was over, it was time for everyone to head over {I'm the world's worst at directions, so I'll just say "over", because I'm really not sure if it was "up" or "down"} to the Boston, Mass area. Since downtown Boston was on our route to Adam's uncle's house, we spent a good part of our day there.

Probably my favorite part of Boston. One of the locals told us
they refer to these flowers as "Horton Hears a Who" flowers. So gorgeous!

Allie saying hello to the ducky statues at the 'Make Way for Ducklings'
area in Boston Commons Park. {We don't have the book yet, but we
are planning to order it on Amazon soon!}

I wanted a family picture {with our little hollywood star} with the flowers.

At the Quincy Market. Crazy busy, but really fun place to eat and shop!
{If you can't tell by the chocolate on Allie's face, we'd just finished a big
bowl of ice cream!}

My baby - who hates nap time - fell asleep in her stroller in the crazy
outdoor marketplace. Who'd have thought...?
The following day, Adam's aunt and uncle took us to Rhode Island to see some of the East Coast beaches! It was such a different view of our  God's creation, and so beautiful!

Little Allie near Second Beach in Rhode Island.

Adam, Allie, & Adam's Grandma Rieger. Love making memories
with Allie's great-grandparents.

...sigh... We have one beautiful baby!

We visited a couple of 18th century mansions on the coast. The regal
atmosphere obviously didn't affect my daughter's desire to pick
this lion's nose... 
We left New England the following day. Tired, and ready to be home...but not before a visit to historic Fenway Park! Part 3: Fenway Park...
