Sunkissed Adventures Family Travel Blog- The Sunkissed Mommy
We slept for 2 hours, all three of us! We woke up around 4ish and my next plan was to explore Boston Common, a few steps from the hotel. So we freshened up and headed back out. The sky was looking pretty miserable at this point but I had a mission and no amount of drizzle was going to get in my way. As soon as we stepped foot in the park, the skies opened up and it rained. We walked through the rain and paused every once and a while to snap a photo. We walked through the main area, then crossed Charles Street to the side with the ducks and gardens. I wanted to find the “Make Way for Ducklings” area. It started raining even harder at this point. We saw a shelter that is used to the Swan Boats and hid under there. A band was playing (violin, keyboard, etc). At first I thought it was odd. Then I spotted this cute couple under the shelter snuggling. The girl had a huge grin on her face and she swayed along with the music. All of a sudden the guy asked her to marry him! He had asked the band to be there and play her favorite song. It was sweet, probably didn’t plan for the downpour, but she was still overjoyed!
Once the rain let up a bit, we continued on our journey through the park. We walked over the bridge and toward the garden area. Then we headed over to Beacon Street. I wanted a photo op by the Cheers bar. Thankfully it’s right on the edge of the park, so we snapped a few photos then headed back in to the park toward “Make Way for Ducklings.” I had finally found it, in the corner of the park by Beacon Street and Charles St. My son loved petting and sitting on the bronze statues. We spent a good 20 minutes there letting him run around.
