This photo is one of my favorites.  
Here, Emma and Annie have a volunteer docent at the Butterfly Garden at the Museum of Science, Boston bent over a bench discussing how the Garden handles the bodies of deceased butterflies. 
The photo captures my girls doing what they do so often and so naturally - engage others.  They just do it, they breathe it.  They are so curious and in love with the world and everyone in it.

Subways and SillyBandz
As much as I could not stop myself from "shushing" Emma on the "T" - her vocalization of her wonder and excitement made at least one rider say how refreshing it was to see the subway ride with new eyes.  Both girls engaged people, offered their seats, 
and seeing them trade Silly Bandz with complete strangers was 
one of the highlights of the trip for me.

The open roofed pool at the Sheraton was another highlight. 
This photo shows the view of it from our hotel room. 
It was so beautiful to float under the city sky at night.

We hit Quincy Market (photos stuck on my phone) and the Children's Museum...
 ...cheered on Boston Fire as they put out a 2-alarm fire in Copley...
...ate out...

And, had a great time!
Girls on the Town 2010 was awesome!  
And, of course, we can't wait to go back and do it all again with Paul!
