There is nothing like a ride on a yellow school bus to get your adrenaline pumping for the day! Yes, the 3rd grade and I went on a field trip to Boston today. And yes, it took a good 1 1/2 hours to get there. On a yellow school bus. More fun couldn't be had anywhere else!
We went on the Duck Tours. These car/boats are amphibious mobiles that were used in WWII (I think). You get a tour around Boston and then you get a tour on the Charles River. It is very cool actually. We couldn't have planned a nicer day for this.
An example of a duck boat in the water.
The Boston sky line.
The Zakim Memorial Bridge.
Then we went to the Boston Common, had lunch and then went for a ride on the swan boats.
After the swan boats, we stopped by and visited Mrs. Mallard with her duckies from Make Way for Ducklings. This is a great book by the way if you haven't already read it yourself or to your kids.
Then it was the ride home, rest for 1 hour and head to soccer practice. You'll have to excuse me if there are more pictures than words tonight, but I am tired!
