Taking Baby to Cheesecake Factory

Taking Baby to Cheesecake FactoryWith temperatures dropping below 30 degrees we decided to stay close to home for our weekend brunch outing.

Conveniently, we also noticed a popular chain restaurant advertising both a special lunch menu and a new “skinny” lower-calorie menu. Since it was also within a 20 minute walk from our house we decided to go to the Cheesecake Factory with our daughter.

Taking baby to Cheesecake Factory was fun for her and relaxing for us. The more Arya goes to restaurants the more she enjoys her time at different venues.

Taking Baby to Fort Independence

Taking Baby to Fort IndependenceWe took Arya to Fort Independence for the Fourth of July. The Fort hosted a special event as part of the celebrations around Boston for Independence Day.

Taking baby to Fort Independence was a fun way to spend the afternoon. Since the Fort offers limited access to visitors during the rest of the year, July 4th is a great time to visit.

This year’s festivities were held as part of Operation Sail, Inc. which brought dozens of tall ships into Boston for OpSail 2012.

The team opens the ballpark to the public with special themed events and photo opportunities. Red Sox tickets are usually among the most expensive in baseball so I’m happy to take any chance to spend some time in Fenway Park for free.
