I'm going to try (try being the key word!) to get better about blogging more personal things - specifically our trips! Not only so I can go back and relive them but so I can more easily give friends advice on what to see, what to avoid and whatnot. :)
Last month we took off to Boston - we went back and forth on going international again this year but decided to get a couple more in country trips under our belt traveling with a baby. Looking back, we TOTALLY could have managed and kicked butt overseas with Eloise but I'm so glad we hit Boston anyways! I went back in 2009 with my school show choir but Josh had never been and I was excited to revisit with him. If you want to take a peek at the entire trip on my insta feed, search #burrisesinboston and it should all be there!
This trip was a lot different than norma for us, only because we did a complete 360 and didn't schedule/plan a THING. We got a lot of recommendations from a local friend and looked it all up, but when it came down to what we were doing on which day we had squat scheduled except for our Saturday Red Sox/Yankees game at Fenway. We totally winged it each day and it was a blast - here's what our days ended up being like...and for what it's worth, 4 days/nights in Boston is totally enough. We honestly could have squeezed it all into 3 but it was nice to be a bit more laid back than when we conquered London in 4 days ;)
9am flight, arrived in Boston around 11:30! Gotta love quick non-stop flights, especially with a baby. We had planned to just take the subway to our hotel but, small world, one of the sales reps at Josh's company lives in Boston & was on our flight...so he was kind enough to give us a ride :) A note on leaving or getting to the airport - it IS possible to take the subway but keep in mind if you have an early flight they don't start running until 6 or later depending on the day - and just because they start running at a certain time doesn't mean the station you need will be going then...we figured that out the hard way and just Uber'd back to the airport!
We stayed at the Marriott in Copley Place (here!)- attached to a super nice mall that has it's own access to the T station. It was a great central area and pretty quick to get anywhere we wanted to go. Depending on how long you're there you can get a 1 day or 1 week Charlie pass for the T. It's cheap & the best way to get around!

We had such a great trip, and definitely recommend it! If you're taking a little one I definitely recommend babywearing over a stroller (especially on the T), but we did take the stroller out a few times and it was fine! The only downside with Eloise is that she's mobile, but not walking. So everyday we made it a point to stop back at the hotel and let her crawl around and burn off some energy. Can't exactly have her crawling around the streets of Boston ;) But other than that it's definitely a baby/small kiddo friendly trip!
