Things to Do in Boston this weekend for families

Boston Weekend with Out of Town Friends. A 2-day Family itinerary.

Technically, we stayed IN (greater Boston), but hosted Out of Town visitors for a weekend (my college friend, her hubby and two kids). So I got myself a wonderful excuse to plan a weekend of touring activities for our two families – all without leaving Boston and minus a travel book.  I did my research (online), …

Around the New Year Tree.
Father Frost Homecoming or How to tell New Year from Christmas.

Celebration of the New Year is one of my most enjoyable memories from Soviet childhood.  There was the New Year tree (basically, a Christmas tree- but without a religious “affiliation”); there were presents from “Father Frost” (basically, a Santa Claus) and an all-night-long celebration of food and friends.  Specifically for kids, there was a tradition …

The Meringue Affair

It all started 20 or so years ago with a first failed merengue (I don’t think I got as far as properly beating the egg whites to a desired consistency, let alone baking them) . I have tried again a couple of times over the years. Always failed, but never gave up!  It was the picture of the Pavlova cake …

Mornings with the Arts.
Children’s Studio Art Class at MFA.

I am definitely not a morning person.  I can’t even pronounce “GOOD MORNING!” and still feel true to myself.  Yet, a 10 am Sunday morning class with my four-year old daughter at the Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) in Boston was a great thing to wake up to – for eight Sundays in a row! …

New York City Weekend with the kids.
Broadway, Central Park, MET, Statue of Liberty

We went to New York City for the weekend in early November hoping to catch a last glimpse of the foliage and a theater show.  We got both, and more.   On Saturday, after an uneventful 3-hour drive from home, we met with our old friends in Central Park around 1pm.   It was a gorgeous sunny …
