Boston is on my list of FAVORITE cities!
As soon as we arrived the town was buzzing with runners from all over the world and even the signs in the airport welcomed us to the famous Boston Marathon. It was incredible. 
The food is amazing. The weather was gorgeous. The tulip gardens, the cannolis and the cities history all were my fav.

So, if you aren't a runner, I'll explain. Marathon runners wear these 'space blankets' (sort of like foil) to regulate their body temperature after the finish line because it drops drastically.

On the Sunday before "Marathon Monday" we visited the oldest Baptist church in Boston.  It was beautiful and historic. Very NOT southern Baptist like we are used to. The minister gave a blessing of the athletes.

On the duck tour in the Charles River, of course dad is driving the his Boston Marathon florescent green jacket.....

Lobstah Roll at the Barking Crab.  Oh my gah. 

It was, historically, the second hottest race in 116 years. Over 4,000 runners dropped out and 3,000 didn't even start. The winner of last year's Boston, dropped at mile 18. 
My dad finished. BOOM! Shaka laka.
