We have been taking Keira to see the Nutcracker every year since she was 3 or 4 years old. We started out watching the local production and last year watched the Boston Ballet's version. This year Nairi was deemed old enough to go and we headed back to Boston. She loved it and asked me questions every 2 seconds about what was going on and the costumes and the lights and the fake snow. She was very cute.
The Boston Opera house is super close to Boston Common so we headed to the park for a bit afterwards to check out the playground and watch the ice skaters and see some of the sights and sounds of the city. There is always something so fascinating about a big city like Boston or New York when its not your day to day view.
