Hurricane Arthur dampened (and chilled) our 4th of July.
But the weather was perfect for fireworks the next night.
I ended my Independence Day weekend with a trip to John and John Quincy Adams' birthplaces and former homes.
Of course, my friend and I had to visit Nut Island for another photo shoot.
It was really windy.
At a friend's birthday party (cowboy/cowgirl themed), Josh had his first ride on a horse.
Last weekend, we enjoyed our local zoo's butterfly exhibit.
Josh put on a puppet show.
And the animals just lounged outside in the warm weather.
Finally, Josh went to Fenway for the first time! They were having their annual "Futures at Fenway" game, and we went to cheer on the Red Sox's Single A affiliate, the Lowell Spinners. Josh loved the park, but was a little bored with the game. Oh well, hockey season will be here soon enough.
When else can you enjoy a game in the third row at Fenway for $15 a seat? Hey Monster, down in front!
I've been slacking with the blog lately, and completely spaced on Wordless Wednesday this week (sorry, Ruchira!). It's a long story, and we'll talk about it eventually, but I wanted to give a quick rundown of some of the things that have been going on. With photos, of course!
Joshua got a new swing set for my mother's house. In case you can't tell by the photo, he likes it. And he's keeping it mighty tidy.
I visited my friend in Quincy MA and discovered Nut Island. Gorgeous views of Boston, and a lovely walking path.
Joshua had his last tee ball game, which included the full game experience -- National Anthem, player announcements, concessions. If they had a walk-up song, his would probably be something from Frozen, although he's currently obsessed with the latest Little Rascals movie and loves the song, "I Got You, Babe."
I visited my dad on Father's Day and we dined in and walked around Newport. On the way home, there was an awesome sunset over Narragansett Bay.
We had a goodbye lunch for my work friend, by the sea on the other side of the bay. I am going to miss my lunch buddy. :(
Last night, I returned to Newport with my friend, to catch my favorite singer, Dierks Bentley, in concert. The venue was gorgeous, the music was awesome, the energy was high, and we had such a blast. The seats weren't bad, either!
