4th of July

Since this is probably our last year in Boston, we decided to go down to the Charles River Esplanade for Independence Day. The crowds were pretty big and we didn't get there early enough to secure a prime spot, but we did find a pretty big spot that was partially obstructed by trees. A bunch of friends also came and we had plenty of room. The Boston Pops played and so did some country band called Rascal Flats.

It was impossible to get a picture of Jack's face and the fireworks in the background because he was totally fixed on them the whole time.

He did start to get tired towards the end of the show and he would dose off occasionally. We were too cheap to buy him one of those glow in the dark things, but the guy thought he deserved one for being so cute, so he just gave him one.

The fireworks lasted for a really long time. I think the finale was longer than most cities' entire shows.

Charlie seemed to like the fireworks too.

Charlie's First Month

Charlie's first month has been pretty exhausting but also very fun. He still likes to party all night and sleep all day. Here are some of the things we have done since he was born.

First bath at home.

Good Harbor Beach (pronounced Good Hahbah). This is in Gloucester where all of the teenagers are pregnant.

We dug a sweet hole.

The Old North Bridge, site of the shot heard 'round the world.

Walden Pond.

Scooper Bowl.

Salamanders at Camp Joseph in Sharon, VT. Birthplace of Joseph Smith.

Our cabin at the campsite.

Back to the beach.

An even sweeter hole.
