My husband spent most of the summer working in Boston. After he had been gone for about five weeks, I made the trip to visit him. And it happened to be 4th of July weekend so it was a great time to visit Boston for the first time. The only downside was how crazy hot it was that weekend. In the 90s, humid, ugh. Just ugh. It reminded me of 4th of July at Grandma's house when I was a kid. Hot. But this time we didn't have a kiddie pool to relieve the heat.
I loved this building right across from our rooftop deck (*our = my husband's cousin's. See? 'Our' is easier to say). That is the cousin's dog, Cali. Super sweet and cheesin' for the camera.
The rooftop deck is right by the Charles River, where the big 4th of July fireworks show is held. Even though most of my 4th of July memories consist of almost-heat-stroke* (*maybe an exaggeration), this 4th might have redeemed the holiday. Almost.
We walked the Freedom Trail, which was interesting and fun. That's the kind of thing we both enjoy so that always makes it more fun. Read between the lines: it is no fun dragging your non-shopping husband around the shopping district in the heat.
Isn't the river so pretty? I like the city backdrop but I also loved all the little boats around the dock.
Another thing about Boston - really pretty architecture. Like, why can't our whole country have beautiful, ivy-covered buildings?
