A Boston Scavenger Hunt with Aunt Donna

Still catching up on reports of our summer activities! In July, we went to Boston for a scavenger hunt with Aunt Donna. I found a link with clues via the Appalachian Mountain Club's Outdoor Kids website, and we adjusted as needed.

We headed into the city from Malden. Fresh off our trip to Washington DC, B was an expert on the subway!

Here's this cool horse statue as we got off the T in the Back Bay.

We snacked and planned at Au Bon Pain and then set off looking for lions. This is actually a photo of the lion statue outside the Fairmont Copley Plaza, we found it before the library lions so we just called it good.

Slow and steady wins the race!

The Boston Public Garden, home of the swan boats.

Ducklings! (We actually had to stand in line for 5-10 minutes in order to get this picture.)

On the carousel near the frog pond.

This one isn't on the scavenger hunt list but Donna knew it would be a big hit!

Looking forward to lots more Boston fun as Brynna grows up. We haven't really gotten into the historical aspects yet—she'll need to be a little older! There are some great historically-focused Boston Junior Ranger badges that she can earn in a few years.
