Wacky New Years Eve in Boston

We started the day by blasting on each family member's room and waking them up, after all it's the end of the year and there's much to do before the fireworks are done. First We woke Lior and Tal (Noa was already awake and jumpy) then we went and joined Nissim and Eli that watched Family guy all night long at their room so they were tired... not enough to ignore us.
The hotel is connected to a mall by an internal elevator and a tunnel network that looks like something that came out of a Zombie movie combined with a מיקווה, After we were joined by Eti and the gang we had our breakfast in the mall's food court
All of us in the food section

Niss had to stick his hand in the picture
Tal and her health sandwich
After we enjoyed a large amount of junk food we went back to the hotel and got dressed for the freezing cold that went outside
View from our window while we got dressed
Briana, Her friend and Ron joined us to the city, we took the Subway there where an odd couple was speaking too loud about their day job and life, We don't believe they are 100% healthy...
The tribe has invaded the train
We were a bit stuffed in the train and it's not as good as the metro system we experienced in New York, If you by accident take the wrong side of the tracks you have to pay another ticket to get to the other side. also, Ron has bought tickets for everyone but somehow the ticket wasn't good when our last passenger tried to pass (Perli as usuall got stuck), but she had initiative and joined another guy and passed like a pirate with him.
There were Ice sculptures outside but there were not that interesting

we got off the train in the government district and had our lunch at a Chinese restaurant there. Perli took a child's menu then everyone envied and changed their order to a child's menu :) I took a chicken and It was very good, I would recommend it (Wagamama restaurant in boston, link needed)
Tal tried to make a spoon stick to her nose but forgot it only works in the freezing outdoors :)
and Noa measured her new 2011 glasses,
From there we went to an ice skating ring in the middle of Boston and everything was covered in snow, the line was a bit long so we didn't quite skate. it was a beautiful sight, a bit cold but beautiful.

Perli and I had some kind of a lover's quarrel and we set our way back to the hotel to rest and talk a bit, on our way back we've noticed that the river next to our hotel was frozen solid
we threw some snow balls down there and they smashed on the river like it was made of cement
I went to rest a bit, Perli went to the mall, when she returned we talked and reconciled. I love this girl.
Perli also got me a present, she said that it looks like me :) she also attached a very romantic gift card.
Then we got downstairs to drink some lobby coffee
And then back to our room to get ready for new years
Perli brought some candy for the occasion
all the hotel rooms had animal robes in their closet so we decided everyone should dress up in their robe (most of the family resided in the hotel and each had a robe) everyone got a tiger robe and I was the only one with a zebra robe (prey?!)

we ate some pizza, had some wine, coffee and sweets (the room service coffee arrived cold... but we forgive)
Perli, Niss, Eli, Tal and me decided to get to the elevator with our zebra robes and sing "Happy, Happy, Happy new years" to strangers for a while,

then we've decided it's a too silly and got back to our party at room 825 (the newly wed's room). David and Franny wanted to sing in a quite place so they took a song book to the bathroom and started singing. we heard them and took a photo of this surreal phenomenon
 then we all gathered and viewed the fireworks in the city landscape
exhausted and happy, we went to sleep
