I think I'm shleepy.
So, when Kev got out of training on Thursday night, he found me waiting with bells on....(well, what I really mean is something other than yoga pants on), and we kicked it to a restaurant called Legal Seafood that everyone had been talking about all week long.
|My red-hot, slightly fried from a week of learning, date! Woot!|
Heaven on a plate.
I am a lover of all things seafood, so it was just a meal of all things glorious: grilled scallops, shrimp, mahi mahi, swordfish, and salmon - along with choice of potato and veggies. So delish. And so much fun. And absolutely no wait at all. Major bonus. On our way out the door, we heard the hostess telling people that there was a 2 1/2 hour wait to be seated for all those hanging out in the lobby. Yuckadoo.
And then we rolled ourselves back to our room, put our comfies back on, and finished the night watching American Idol and drinking sparkling cider. We're wild like that. And it was awesome.
Training wrapped up around noon on Friday, and since the plan for picking up the boys wasn't until noon on Saturday, we figured it might be fun to go poke around and try to get ourselves lost in Quincy Market and the North End of Boston. I called up my virtual tour guide - my cousin Jodi, who knows the place like the back of her hand, and who also was very accessible to the internet should we need some real help - and off we traipsed like two kids in a candy shop...
A show that I would really, really love to go on someday....and a show where I think that Kev and I could make for some pretty good t.v.....with there just being one minor detail that could pose for one very major problem.
Like, we're awesome at it.
And, because we're both so super competitive, I still think that we'd have a decent chance on that racing show. Plus, when I'm not gloriously great with child...I can run like the wind. In my dreams, anyway...
It's on my Bucket List.
If that man would ever stop getting me pregnant...
This dude was our coffee artiste.
How very romantic, eh?
And super delish. And cozy.
Kevy already slurped in his before the picture was taken...that's why his isn't as pretty as mine...
Cute and fun.
It was my favorite part of the whole day.
The Florentine one with the crunchy outer honey coating.
Holy cannoli was it ever delish.
I ate most of it while Kev worked on getting us lost some more....
Go there the next time you are in Boston.
When we were walking around with our own little to-go box we heard a dude say: "Hey! He's got Mike's! Take him out!" It's true. I could've taken him. I was larger....
I is a homeschooling Mama, yes indeed.
That's about it. Now my brain hurts.
And historical, too....
Sooooo, that about sums up the Kevin and Amy tour of Boston.
We sampled our way through Quincy Market, too, but I had to put my camera away because my hands were too full of all of the little tasties that I kept trying. I liked Quincy Market. It was yummy. And I liked the North End, too. Sweet, little, yummy cobblestoned Italy, it was.
I did not like the cost for the parking garage....nearly $40. Ho-ly Hannah. We almost got an ulcer when we saw the fee. Nor did I like the traffic on our way out of the city. However, overall, our spontaneous little afternoon out and about and walking about 86 miles when we really only needed to walk about 10 blocks was well worth the trip!
We got exercise.
We got culture.
The weather was glorious.
The company was fabulous.
And we learned a little bit of history, to boot.
That last sentence is a total lie....
