It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Summer! - Part 1

Elizabeth has been anxiously awaiting the end of school and hot weather to be able to play in the water at the many fabulous splash parks in Cambridge. School ended last week and summer has arrived this weekend! Mr. Sunshine, you are VERY welcome here. Please stay a long time!

Yesterday (Saturday) morning we got breakfast at Dunkin Donuts and then visited a near by park that Colin had never gotten to see. It's got a name, I'm sure, but I call it "the one across the street from the Science Museum."

We saw this draw bridge go up a couple of times to let boats out into the bay. And we saw a couple trains go across when it was down. Each direction is on a separate control, so they can lift half or both.

Aren't these two handsome?

We found where the Duck Boats live when they're not busy giving tours.

It was an gorgeous morning!

We played a little at the park and then had to go for two reasons: there's no bathroom at this park, (major oversight in the park's development), and Brian had to nap.


  1. so glad you all finally got some sun! i love spending some quality family time at the park! i can't wait to see some splash pics too - they don't have splash parks in ca.

  2. I know I'll miss them when we're back in Pgh...though I know they're developing some. Cambridge parks are the best!

  3. I just looked it up: the park we went to is called North Point Park. It's a Massachusetts DCR park and was actually built as part of the Big Dig.
