MP and DP recently celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary. To mark this festive occasion, DP planned an overnight trip to Boston for all of us. The plan? The kids would spend the day and evening with their Uncle Joe, while DP and MP would enjoy dinner, a surprise concert and a night to ourselves!
Uncle Joe planned to take the kids to Boda Borg, which is best described as a live action video game. The game, which originated in Sweden in the nineties, takes players into various themed rooms (a jungle, a prison, a mouse trap, etc.) where they must work with their team to find a way out. The kids couldn’t wait to visit Boda Borg and barely turned around to say goodbye once it was time to go.
After leaving the kids with their uncle, we checked into our hotel, which was located just a block away from the historic Wang Theatre (where we were to see the concert that evening). “I don’t know any other way to tell you who we’re seeing tonight,” DP said, “Let’s just walk to the theater.”
