One of our favorite outings is to Powell's Sweet Shop. It's an old fashioned candy shop with the most amazing gelato I've ever tasted. It's so fun. I remember an old fashioned candy/ice cream parlor called Merrill's where I grew up in NM. I LOVED going there, getting ice cream and seeing all the fun candy. Powell's definitely takes me back to my childhood, especially since they have a lot of the candy I grew up on that you can't find anywhere. I think I gain a pound everytime I just think about it. Just outside the shop is a grassy area with a fountain that the kids like to play in. Boston is notorious for finding little holes in the ground and lying in them.
Here's the little man in his "hole" with Emi and Chloe looking on.
