Nolan and The City - Swan Boats

Last month my Nolan had his tonsils out.  I know, this is a common procedure, but it did take a solid two weeks before Nolan was back to his high-energy self.  There were lots of sleepless nights and lots of tears.  We are so glad that is behind us and hoping for less sickness this winter.  He had eight strep throats and three bouts of pneumonia last winter.

Last week we had to go for a follow-up appointment at Mass Eye & Ear in Boston.  After the appointment I promised Nolan a surprise before we went home.  I told him it was something in one of his books that I used to read to him.  He couldn't guess and was asking all kinds of questions along the way.

We were making our way to the Public Garden.
We got off at Park Street Station and (hurriedly) walked through the Boston Common to get there.  We did stop to get a very cool balloon from the balloon man for a buck!
 A light saber of course.
We finally get to our destination.  It's the Swan Boats!  (Which by the way is only $1.50)
Me:  "Well don't you want to go on"?  Nolan:  "Well...Mum, there are no sides on that boat.  I'm not going on that thing".
 I'll just sit on the duck...
 Now Mum you sit on the duck...
