Yesterday I stumbled across the pictures from our Boston vacation exactly five years ago – July 2010 – and found myself remembering what an especially fun family trip it was.

This was just a few weeks before Lindsey headed off to college and Grant started high school. It’s amazing how much their lives have changed in just five short years.

And, oh, how I love Boston. Anyplace with equal parts history and charm is okay by me.

These arial shots were taken from the top of the Prudential Center, which Grant likes to remind us no one wanted to visit except him, and it ended up being a favorite part of the trip for everyone. Look at those views!

We saw all of the following pictures on our walk from the hotel to Fenway.

I loved the fish in this sign on the sidewalk.

And I remember the night of this baseball game being very cool. So welcome after coming from Kansas City’s July temperatures.

These pictures make me want to go back.

What vacation are you remembering fondly these days?
