I have brought our kids to this weekend of classes at MIT the weekend before Thanksgiving for thirteen consecutive years. It has long been a highlight of our year, and I can’t believe this is the last one!
We stayed again at the Kendall Hotel with it’s close proximity and great breakfast, and dined as traditionally at Legal Seafood. This year I discovered a cool roof garden across the street; it is amazing to think of trees growing on top of buildings!
