We went on our weekly Sunday bike ride adventure to Mount Auburn Cemetery. It is one of the many interesting places around that I had never been, despite often saying we should. It was so beautiful. I'm glad Logan seems not to mind too much that when I say "We should go somewhere" I really mean "We should go somewhere cool so I can take pictures the whole time." It is just hard not to take tons of pictures when we are surrounded by such cool things.
There were tons of amazing little doors and I wanted to take pictures in front of every single one, but resisted. They are so beautiful and have such cool details and colors, making perfect backdrops.
We found a little metal knocker, just Soren's size. He thought it was pretty fun to knock on the door, but we were glad no one answered.
It is such a beautiful place, we will definitely be going back. It is huge, and we didn't even begin to explore the whole thing. If you haven't been, you need to go. If doors and beautiful scenery hasn't convinced you, we also saw several bunnies and a few chipmunks so it has a little of everything. We're trying to figure out what we have to do in order to be buried there. I think the first step would be to live a couple hundred years ago and have lots of money. We're working on it.
Update: Just found out that you CAN be buried there! Now I just need to figure out how to score the plot next to Longfellow...
