Can You Say, “Heat Wave”?

Can you believe I took this picture? Aren't I the photog ...

If you’re unaware, Boston has been experiencing some summer-like weather the past several days.  I’ve really been enjoying the change of pace.  (You can tell just how much I’ve been enjoying it by the state of our apartment, as my usual weekend clean was somewhat neglected this week.)

We took Emmett for his second-ever stroll downtown through the Common and the Public Garden, where we stopped to have a little picnic in the park.  This time, the Swan Boats were out, the tulips were in bloom and the sun was definitely an issue.  We cut our outing a little short on account of the brutal rays, especially since sunblock for little ones seems to be only available for little ones 6 months and older.  Still, we definitely had a grand ole time!

Some highlights …

A Walk in the Park, a Stroll Through Boston

March 7, 2009 4 comments

What a day of firsts!  Yesterday James and I decided that, because of today’s warm weather forecast (56 degrees – spring is almost here!), we’d jump at the opportunity to take Emmett out for his first stroll in the park.  I’m pretty confident in saying that Em was totally a fan.  It was his first outing in the stroller where he actually stayed awake for a good chunk of the time.  It was also the first time we took the stroller on the T to get downtown, and man is the T totally not stroller- (or handicap-, for that matter) accessible!  If James hadn’t been with me, it would’ve been impossible for me to go it alone.

In any event, we made it to the Commons without any bouts of crying.  We took a nice long walk, strolling past the Frog Pond (Can you believe that Frog Pond ice skating is still open?  What a great day to skate!), stopping at the Public Garden for a photo/video oppt., continuing along Newbury Street and on to Kenmore Square, where we stopped for another one of Emmett’s firsts – a restaurant visit to Uno’s.  James and I each had a quick burger while Emmett ordered up his usual fare, bottled breast milk.

Needless to say, I think all three of us are looking forward to more warmer days in Boston and future outings.
