4th of July in Boston. We sure know how to put on a show. My aunt and uncle were impressed with the fireworks and the crowds.

We were able to sneak VIP seating into the Boston Pops 3rd of July concert, by waiting until all the VIPers had been seated and then getting seats right behind them.

Joel, Tim and I tried to go to the Chowder fest but we didn't get there before they ran out of chowder. Oh well there is always next year and now we know to get there right at the beginning.

The 5th consisted of walking and taking a trolly around town. We went to the US Constitution, Bunker Hill monument and saw many different buildings around town. The oldest pub, oldest restaurant, apartment where JFK lived, a Post Office from 1900 and many other cool sights hidden away in Boston and surrounding areas.
