Sprang out of bed early to go for a run, okay really it was a telemarketer calling at 8am on a Saturday (why?????) that made me spring out of bed. With a wakeup call like that, there was no way I was going to go back to sleep. So I turned it into a “let’s get this run started” kind of moment, besides I was going to spend the afternoon with my daughter in Boston so I needed to get it done. Ate a few chomps, drank some water and headed to my favorite 5 mile route (maybe not my favorite but one that has varied terrain like hills and some flat spots where I need them). It went well and I finished feeling pretty good.
Headed back home to shower and have a late breakfast with the fam. Then my daughter and I headed out to Boston. For Mother’s day/my Birthday, she had purchased two tickets to the aquarium and then she had planned dinner at a fun little restaurant nearby all on her dime and we were off to redeem it.
We drove 45 minutes into the outskirts of Boston and took the subway in, changing trains several times but it was very enjoyable. I love spending time with my kid. We made it to the aquarium and had some fun time petting sting rays, clams, and starfish as well as visiting the penguins and huge fish tank in the middle of the aquarium filled with cool fish, eels and turtles.
After the aquarium we walked up to a well-known pastry shop for cannolis to take home and then it was off to dinner at The Barking Crab. There is nothing like eating the seafood you just got to see in the exhibits at the aquarium.
It was a wonderful afternoon hanging out and walking around an awesome city with daughter. It has been so much fun being her mom all these 19 years and I am looking forward to watching her grow into an adult.
(Oh I forgot to tell you that my daughter calls me Mummy so that is why the title is Mummy/Daughter)
