Downtown Boston & Walden Pond

November 1st we headed to downtown Boston to play in the leaves. Enjoy the nice weather out and attempt the freedom trail.
We had all these great pictures and videos of jumping in the leaves and running around but then our memory card was ruined somehow before we put our pictures on the computer. (Seriously biggest bummer ever)
It was so pretty downtown

On our way around the freedom trail it started to get really cold and I was getting hungry. We headed to Quincy Market to eat in Faneuil Hall and met up with Justin after school to have some delicious Bread bowl soups. Westin took a nap in the stroller and we all took a much needed break and stayed out of the cold.

The next day we headed out to Walden Pond to do a little hiking. The view was so pretty and at first we were freezing but we soon started to shred our layers upon layers of clothes. We gathered walking sticks and tried skipping rocks in the water. Ate some snacks, and ran for an emergency bathroom break. I wonder who that was....

Shoulder rides. Seriously, check out the leaves! All those colors are gorgeous.

Lyla was quite the trooper walking around and so was her Mom for staying by her side because we all know Lyla would jump in that water and chance she got.

Later that day we all the Van Dusens got ready for some family photos and I laid on the couch for a couple hours. I was so worn out from this trip. I love the look Emily has looking at her self in the mirror. Such a princess.

After baths I noticed Westin had something on his arm. It turned out to be a tick and we figure he got it from walking around the pond. Totally Gross! We had to yank it off him which he wasn't a fan of and thank goodness he didn't get sick but we all checked ourselves and all our clothes. We each had the willies for the rest of the night for fear that someone else had one crawling up their arm too.
