The Staycation: Be a Tourist in Your Own Town

Today we decided to head into Boston. We have no plans and figured it would be nice to get the kids out of the house and do something fun.

What turned out to be a spur of the moment thing, turned into a great day filled with questions (from the kids), fun times, great food and good conversation with the family. We went to the New England Aquarium, had lunch at Tia's on the Wharf (got the baked stuffed lobster), headed to the waterfront for some pictures, etc.

Basically, for a throw-a-way type day, it was one of the best days of the year so far. The word Staycation came to mind as we were out and about and it now makes sense to me. Visit your hometown. Do the tourist thing. Discover what you miss every day because it's right in front of your face.

Here's our day...
