One of the things I love about living in Burlington is how close it is to a variety of major cities - you can easily get to Montreal, Boston and NYC in just a matter of hours. This weekend I made a trip down to Boston with Thomas to visit and friend, go to a 3-D IMAX show at the Aquarium and see a Celtics game!

We saw the "Under the Sea" IMAX show, and then followed it up with a walk around the aquarium - it was really cool to see several of the really interesting creatures that we had seen in the IMAX next door at the aquarium, like the wicked cool leafy sea dragon.

After the aquarium we walked through Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market and then caught the T to the Museum of Fine Arts where our friend is a chef (they have a delicious restaurant inside of the museum). Jared took care of us to the utmost degree and had us try a bunch of the different dishes that he makes - it was delicious! After the feast we went back to Jared's house and he cooked for us again - chicken tacos this time!

On Sunday we saw the Celtics vs. Magic game which was a lot of fun. I was rocking my new Shaq t-shirt, but he's injured and wasn't even there which was too bad. We had a great time watching all of the action and seeing some great basketball. We drove home after the game and got back just in time to catch the last few minutes of the Superbowl.

What a great weekend in such a vibrant and fun city - I hope to make more trips in the future!
