The long-lost blogger is back! I took a break because I started to view this blog as a chore instead of a fun hobby. I've been missing it, so I decided to start back with the realistic expectation that I might not have time to post every week. I'll do what I can without putting too much pressure on myself.

Two weeks ago we flew to Boston with Miller. Yes, we stuck a four month old on an airplane with total strangers. I wasn't as fearful as I should've been because, as I mentioned, the other passengers were total strangers. If Miller acted like a complete crazy baby, I'd never have to look those people in the face again. Luckily for us, she was a great flyer both there & back.

State Farm really knows how to reward its employees! Ryan & his team killed a promotion earlier this year & we received a trip to Boston & got to stay in one of the most prestigious hotels in the city. We would never stay here on our own dime, so it was a great experience.

The Fairmont at Copley Plaza

The ceilings were incredible
One of the most historic aspects of the Fairmont at Copley Plaza (besides the fact that many past presidents have stayed there), is that two black labs live in the hotel. They're a huge part of the hotel & everyone there, guests included love them. Here's Miller with Callie Copley.

Catie Copley is the older of the two dogs & she's quite famous! Here's a copy of her book cover, and of course we picked up a copy for Miller & had Catie autograph it for her!

We were limited on what we could do & see by Miller's sleeping & eating schedule, but we were still able to do a lot.


On the first night we headed to the Cheesecake Factory, a first for the both of us. It didn't disappoint :)

The next morning we toured Boston via a DUCK. It's a war vehicle & the Duck Tours are the most popular tours in Boston. Half of the tour is on land and the other half is on the Charles River.


The next day we shopped around, then headed to Fenway Park that night for a showing of the movie, The Sandlot. It was a magical experience to be in such a historic baseball park & Ryan had a ball showing Miller everything.

Later that night we partied...

We wrapped up our trip with a little more sight-seeing. Boston is such a beautiful, family-friendly city and we can't wait to go back again (maybe just the two of us next time :0).
