The City of Boston

Adam likes very much to go on the train to the City of Boston. He doesn't fully comprehend what the City of Boston is, however; he has trouble reconciling the skyline we can see from the bridge with the streets and sidewalks and buildings.  Even in the middle of the city, he'll point to a tall building a few blocks away and say, "Look, there's the city of Boston!"

Last Wednesday, we went to Boston to see our friend Sheila Spinney.  It was a gorgeous day, so we went on the swan boats in the Public Garden, and then had a hot dog for lunch from a cart in the Common.

Adam takes his fun very seriously.  He often doesn't seem to be enjoying things because he looks very serious and focused. 

But this is generally a good sign--he's concentrating on whatever it is, because it's fascinating.

We watched the other boats, and even saw a real swan (plus ducks, and geese, and pigeons, all of which are equally thrilling when you're two and a half).

 (Note his look of intense concentration.  This is a good sign--really!)

The sweetest part, though, is that he brought his pet with him, and carried it very carefully everywhere we went downtown--on the train, on the boat, and at lunch.  The fish loved the City of Boston as much as Adam did.
