Happy 4th of July!

Today was a pretty low-key day. I'm still trying to kick this nasty cough and congestion from my allergies going awry.

Jim and I went out on a photo safari today - which consists of driving around until a place or places strike us to stop and take photos. We stopped a couple of times for a few pictures and just enjoyed the drive around in the nice weather.

After a stop at Coldstone we went to see Transformers. Good movie. I was surprised at how many of the names of the characters I remembered from my childhood!

Here's a few more pictures from Boston - since it's related to the Revolutionary War and to me fits in with Independence Day.

(this is not his actual gravestone - this is next to it. I'll share it later)


I'm going to hold off posting much more about Boston until I get the rest of my pictures back. I mailed about a dozen rolls of film into Snapfish and I should have them online for viewing by the end of the week.

In the interim, here's a few more from the start of our day.

We parked at Sullivan Square to meet up with Sarah, Laurie, and Sarah and then took the T (subway) into Boston itself for our first stop on the scavenger hunt - Haymarket.

You can buy a 1 day pass for the T for $9.00 which is what we all did - much cheaper than paying each time.

At the end of a long day in Boston - waiting for the T to back to the van

Day 4 - Mallrats

Saturday Melissa, Christina, Amiee and I got up early to get ready and to head to the mall for mani's and/or pedi's at 10am - we had plans to meet Nel there. Sarah wasn't able to join us but we'd meet up with her, Laurie, Judy, and another Sarah in Boston later that day.

In spirit of the bachelorette party we all wore our matching shirts.
Anyone remember the show Bosom Buddies?

On our way to the nail salon

At the mall in the salon. I just got a pedicure since manicure's never hold up on my nails. My toes are red (color is Kennebunkport - in honor of my trip) and I have daisies painted on my big toes.

After mani's and pedi's we went out into the mall to do some shopping and to get something to eat. I was planning to get some chowda from Legal Seafoods when I rounded the corner and found

They even had sweet tea!

More lunch pictures, this is Christina - the bride to be

After lunch we went in search of a pair of Athens Crocs for Amiee and found her a pair. I almost got a pair but since I was already wearing Crocs for the day I didn't need them. (I ordered them after I got home - they'll be here Thursday *wink*)
and headed to Cheesecake Factory for dessert!

After dessert Nel had to leave us so we set up some group pictures, Brady Bunch style in the mall and said goodbye to her before we headed into Boston!

Next stop, Sullivan Square in Boston to park and catch the T!
