boston
My folks came to Boston for Thanksgiving
 
JFK 1
We went to JFK's birthplace
 
JFK 2
but it was closed,
 
JFK 3
so we walked around to see where JFK played catch.
 
library 1
Then we went to the Boston Public Library
 
library 2
A lion tried to attack us,
 
library 3
but my daddy saved the day.

Next day: Thanksgiving, but my stove doesn't work well
 
legal
So we went to Legal Seafoods.
 
turkey 1
Doesn't my dad look European here?
 
turkey 2
It was Ilaria's first Thanksgiving (though, not a terribly traditional one)
 
xmas
Now we can officially look towards Christmas.
 
apartment
We played games and ate snacks in my enormous apartment
 
icecream
and my mom had her daily ice cream fix.
 
bigdig
The next day, it finally stopped raining (but boy was it windy and cold!)
 
constitution
We went to see "Old Ironsides" the USS Constitution, the oldest ship still commissioned by the US Navy (this means they still sail it, and if all hell broke loose they could even use it in battle; of course they wouldn't though; our tax dollars are well spent on the 70 full-time sailors that keep her running?)
 
constitution 2
Here we had a different look at the city
 
flag
and how our country (well not Ilaria's) used to be.
 
cannon
We went below deck
 
sleep
and I tried out the sleeping arrangements.
 
revere
And to maintain tradition, we went to Paul Revere's house.

And near it we found the best pizza I've had in Boston (and I've tried a lot of places).
