I know I’m behind, but we had such a fun holiday weekend that I must report. We went up to Boston (just me and the kiddies because Seth flew out to climb Mt. Rainier) to spend the weekend with my cousin Shayna. Our plans were to head down to Plymouth then Cape Cod but the weather wasn’t so great–it was raining. Idea nixed. So we just hung out around downtown Boston and had a blast. That city really gets into the 4th. Everything is so patriotic and there is so much American history. We actually stopped by this cemetery that has John Hancock, Paul Revere, Ben Franklin’s family grave sites. We watched fireworks near their home, and there was a fun carnival that Stella and Trejan enjoyed.

Sounds like you have been having fun! Love getting together with family!
I love that picture of the carnival ride. Sounds like you had fun.
I love touchable history. I just seems to come alive if you get to visit where it actually happened. Glad you had a great holiday!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the photos. Tre is so crazy! I’m so happy you came up…you really brigtened my 4th of July weekend amongst the yucky weather. You are so awesome!
Oh wow – that sunset looks fantastic. We went to Boston for a 4th of July event when I was young. I’ve never seen a town come together as a patriotic community like Boston. I was so impressed!
