I am so far behind on this blog, I don’t know where to even start. Hey, it is summer, I don’t want to be stuck on a keyboard when I can be having fun.
I looked at the calendar and realize that in a 5 weeks all of that fun will be ending and I will be back to some type of routine again and probably blogging better- hang tight.
Here are a couple of shots at the Boston Pops and Fireworks on the 4th of July. They didn’t go quite the way we planned. In 11 years, we have been down 4 times to the event. We skipped the last six years until the kids could get passed the wiggles and the toddling. There is nothing worse than having to use a green, portable bathroom outside with a three year old.
We hit dinner before hand at the Prudential Center at California Pizza Kitchen. Yuck, but the kids liked the Pizza.
It was a wild 4th of July as 500,000 of our closet friends & concertgoers…many with one to many bottles of wine consumed…. were told to evacuate during a wicked lightning storm at the Boston Pops on the Charles River ..total chaos.
What you saw on TV an hour into it was the rehearsal footage, not reality. It poured rained and we resigned to watching the fireworks from our hotel hallway window with Romney Boston staffers, who were also staying there. We cranked up the pops music on television and it was still awesome despite the last minute changes in the weather! Lizzy was asleep within 5 minutes so at least Brian didn’t have to carry her back from the river like in years past.
It was definitely a bummer that the Pops was delayed, although we did have 1 hour with the cast of Mama Mia singing. You have to wait for hours after you stake a spot. We made the best of it playing and talking.
The turn of events, left Jennifer Hudson and the Cast of Mama Mia singing in the rain and the rest of us scrambling.
We woke up to this- where was it the night before? The calm after the storm…..
I just recently blogged about my Freedom Trail walk, I talked about all of the doors that Boston has.
Everywhere you turn there is something really amazing welcoming you in in Boston
And here is the neighborhood where we are moving close to Beacon …ha ha I wish.
I just love how Boston gives you this right around the corner.
I was in NYC a couple of days ago and found myself missing Boston and singing everyones favorite here….”Shipping off to Boston….OHHHHHHHH”
It was a great family night together…rain or no rain! We loved it.
