Grandmas Visit The Cradle Of Liberty: Snow Day & Goodbyes

Monday morning we awoke to a city blanketed in snow! Yes, it was bitter cold...and it was tough to dress in such a manner as to still be comfortable twelve hours later when we landed in Houston. But SNOW! We only got a sprinkling at our house this past winter, so I was all smiles!

And very thankful for that down filled, half priced Anne Taylor coat!

See the pretty white snow that covered the old gray stuff? And did you notice how much it had melted on those two warm days after we arrived? Remember, it was up past the bottom of those windows when we arrived on Thursday.

We walked through the park to take a few snow day pictures.

Then we headed up to the Prudential Skywalk Observatory for a bird's eye view of Boston.

You can tell from the picture that the snow was still falling pretty heavy while we were up there.

That's our hotel...I told you the coat was found three doors down! I wasn't kidding!

After seeing the city from above, we headed to the Library to visit John Adams presidential library. Only, it was President's Day...which meant the library was closed.

So we headed to Stephanie's on Newbury for brunch.

We had heard good things about this place and it did not disappoint. They even brought me PLENTY of creamer for my coffee...and I take a lot of cream in my coffee!!

After brunch, we stopped by the Lindt chocolate store for some spring truffles and then back to the hotel where we passed some time in the business center before it was time to head to the airport.

We had a great time in Boston and were sad to see it come to an end...but there is always next year!

I wonder where 2012 will find us?
