Boston: Duck tour, Fenway, and food.

Thursday, June 10, 2010

(I'd like these purple pom pom flowers all over my garden, please.)
The kids' grandparents were in town so what better activities than some duck tour action (hosted by Plucky Ruffles--complete with cheesy but semi-funny jokes... and was entirely self-deprecating which, let's be honest, is the best way to be) and a Fenway tour?  Some of his funnier jokes:
"Why is the road bumpy?"  "It's not your fault, it's not my fault.  It's asphalt!"
"What side of a duck has feathers?"  "The outside!"
There were others.  Oh, there were others.  But those are two that I remember, anyway.  
Really wish you'd have kept your eyes open, William.  
And glad Jordan recovered from Nathaniel putting his arm around him resulting in a big fiasco.  Did you know?  Teenagers DO NOT like to be touched.  You have been warned.  Touch one and suffer the consequences.

Lindsey = cute | Hubs = HOT

We learned stuff about Fenway that we had never known.  What a cool place that is.  Did you know that there is Morse Code on the Green Monster score board section that is the initials of both Mr. and Mrs. Yawkey as a memoriam to them?  You didn't?  Me neither.  But now we both know.  Also that random red seat amongst all the green ones?  That's where Ted Williams had a home run hit a guy (you might've known that one).  

That's William driving the Duck boat just before we crashed.  J/k, obvi.
