A Dream Come True

Wow, these pictures are so old, it is from before I had my blog!! Sheesh. But they are of July 4th (and the preceeding week), so still timeframe appropriate. This was truly a dream trip for us. We were gone over a week, we had a rockin’ price on a famous hotel (The Parker House, of Parker House rolls and Boston Cream Pie fame) in downtown Boston, we rented a car and went to Newport, RI, for a day to visit the mansions (something I had also always wanted to do, but we lost all but these two photos in a computer crash, so I have nothing to show for it), we went to Fenway Park, and we spent July 4th with The Boston Pops on The Esplanade. Awesome trip, and certainly one I will never forget.

A Dream Come True

  • Journaling: “A dream come true – For many many years, I watched The Boston Pops do their annual 4th of July concert on television. As a child, I always dreamed that one day, I would spend Independence Day on the Esplanade. When Steve and I set our wedding date for July 4, 1998, I told him then that one day, someday, we would spend our anniversary there. Someday came in 2003, for our 5th wedding anniversary. This trip was also a dream come true for my husand. He was finally able to see the Red Sox play at Fenway Park.”
