Bolton Spring Farm for some apple picking. So fun! Then we walked across the street to get some fresh Apple Crumble, Cold Cider, and rummage through the local market. If you can't tell already a lot of our trip was based around food so next we drove to Kimball Farms and tried out their famous ice cream. There was NO room in my belly, but I still managed to force down the best Burnt Almond Fudge I've ever had.
That night we went to dinner at a place called, Punjabi Dhaba. I LOVE me some good Indian food and this place hit the spot. Here in good ol' Utah when you go get Indian it's usually at a really nice restaurant with white table clothes, not very authentic. This place on the other hand had Bollywood music blasting, it was full of locals, and the food was served on a metal tray. For dessert we walked down the street a bit and got more ice cream at Christiana's Homemade Ice Cream.
I am one happy and FULL girl :)
We made a last minute decision to stop through Salem on our way back and I am so glad we did. There is a lot of history in Massachusetts, but Salem is different. It's difficult for my mind to wrap around what really happened there with the witch trials, but it was very interesting to wander through the town. When we pulled in there were booths set up everywhere, and people decked out in their witch attire. It was so fun, but strange all at the same time. Salem was one of my favorite things we saw, but I also felt a tiny guilty for enjoying it's mystery.
For dinner we got take out pizza at Otto Pizza in Harvard Square and since we were so close we couldn't resist trying a new flavor of cupcake from Sweet, again.
Sunday = Duck Tour of the city, eating at Faneuil Hall Marketplace, resting at the Harbor, shopping at H&M, and then the best night of eats yet! Little Italy is a must!
If you are ever in Boston you HAVE to eat at Giacomo's. We were all dying over their delicious food. My favorite was the Pumpkin Tortellinis and Garlic Broccoli. Get there early or you'll wait all night for a table (totally worth it even if you do have to wait)!
My mouth has started watering just thinking about their yummy food.
***Thank you Cousin Sherry for taking me and thank you Krissy for giving us a place to stay and touring us around all weekend. You both are amazing. Can't wait till next time!

The cheerleaders were so sweet to her, and even gave her a signed calendar. Millie was a bit overwhelmed and she just stared at them in awe, but after they left all she could talk about was how much fun it was to meet them, and how nice it was of that they let her hold their pom poms. Although she wasn't sure how to act around Swoop and the cheerleaders at first, as her parents, Brady and I could see how much she was loving it, and how special they made her feel. As Brady carried her to our setas, she said, "boy I'm a lucky girl"!

Millie, the squirt gun, and her new pal, Swoop!
A family friend of the Flamm family, Travis, who put us in touch with Jamie in the first place, also gave us his tickets for the night! THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING, TRAVIS! It was a night that we won't forget. I tear up just thinking about how much love went into making tonight special for Millie, and for us.
Swoop even brought Millie a SIGNED shirt. It's huge and it made her love it all the more. She wore it around like a dress at the game and insisted on wearing it to bed. "It's a nightgown mom".
I love these two.
One of my favorite parts of the night was being down right on the field when the players and Coach Whittingham came out. It was so fun to watch the fans going crazy.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
to everyone who took part in making this night possible for Millie, Brady, and I.
