On Saturday, we dropped Catherine off with her Nonni and Grandpa, and headed down to Boston for a weekend excursion! 🙂 We drove in and parked at the Boston Common parking garage ($22 for the weekend, not bad) and walked in the chilly weather down to our hotel.
We stayed in the Marriott at Copley Place, thanks to a gift card we got from Ken and Dianne last Christmas.
From our room on the 21st floor, we had a terrific view of the southwest part of the city, including the South End.
A good portion of our time was spent lounging in the hotel room, vegging out, watching TV, and relaxing.
We had lunch at b. good, a favorite stop of ours.
We had a *very* nice dinner at Stephanie’s on Newbury, courtesy of a gift card I won at work last year. We brought our desserts back to the room and watched Wall-E on pay-per-view on the room’s huge TV.
Overall it was a very enjoyable weekend. Our main goal was just to veg out and enjoy good food, quiet rest, pleasant company, and comfortable accommodations. We were pretty pleased with the view from our hotel room, if you couldn’t tell. 🙂 If we stretched, we could see the Charles River on the far right of our window, and the Southeast Expressway on the far right. This will probably be the last chance we have to take a weekend away with just the two of us for quite some time, what with baby #2 due to arrive in eight weeks or so. It was definitely worth it.

It sounds like Catherine had a good time while we were away, too, thanks to Nonni and Grandpa!
