Additionally, living by the California coast, I actually crave the cold.  Not the usual “cold” I experience (that being the morning fog that rolls in, but then is burnt off come 11am.)  No, I crave the “drop in weather and wearing fashionable layers of plaid, vests, and scarfs” kind of cold.  That being said, our trip to Massachusetts was the perfect East Coast state to visit this time of year.

I found our 3 day stay in the city to be perfect.  We stayed in Cambridge and visited Harvard.  I quickly gifted our son with enough toddler-sized Harvard gear to hopefully instill a love for the University.  So fingers crossed I have a future freshmen on my hands :).

Another day was spent enjoying the HOCR as we watched the rowers compete along the Charles River.  An absolutely relaxing day, we literally spent the day at the River watching the competition, eating amazing food truck grub, and indulging in some retail shopping thanks to Brook Brothers and the other preppy brands available.

On our last day in Boston, we were super touristy and checked out a “hop on and off” tour bus so that we could see all the major tourist spots.  I’d have to say it was a great way to see a town in a day.  We visited several spots, but my favorites included: Fenway Park and Boston Common.

Stay tuned for part 3 of my East Coast recap.  Our Cape Cod adventures might just be my favorite part :).

Sincerely, Kymberly

  1. Aw, your baby bump is SO cute!!!!! =) I don’t know if you know this, but I am a Red Sox fan by marriage since my husband is from Boston. hehe. Fenway looked pristine and I LOVED your outfits!! I also wished we lived in a place that called for plaid, vests, and boots during this time of year! Take care, Kymberly!

  2. Awww I love the pics! And you look so happy as a prego momma! 😀 Sounds like a wonderful time you three had. Honestly, living over here on the east coast I crave the warmth you have year-round in Cali!

    1. I’m a much happier pregnant mama now that I’ve passed some serious weeks of unbearable vommitting- eek!

      Isn’t it funny how you want the weather you don’t always have? it’s still summer-like weather here in California (and it’s November)!

      1. Oh my goodness, I had the worst morning sickness with my V, but luckily it passed after the first 5-6 weeks haha!

        It really is! It’s terrible here. Our weather can never seem to make up its mind! It was in the mid 70s just a few days ago and now it’s straight back into the 50s.
