Part 2 of our downtown adventure






I have to say I am not looking forward to this evening,as I find it very scary.Archie says it doesn't bother him at all but I find it to be just awfull.Plus living in Boston this is a big deal this 4th of July thing. PL1+2 are very excited because they go to this big bridge over the Charles River and see the fireworks and hear the Boston Pops but I think it is overated. Oh well..... PL 2 said when she was at work yesterday( her hospital is right next to the river) she saw military helicopters patroling and millions of state police and THE ARMY patrolling with guns!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(I think I'll stay home and review my latest calculus book thankyou while Archie colors)I wanted to continue with our adventure and show you more sites we took in over the weekend!!

The first picture is me trying to peek in at the furniture in a house on Louisburg Square in Beacon Hill( this is a BEAUTIFULL square of very old fantastic brownstone houses) In the next picture I am leaving the famous Boston Atheneum,home to many many famous books and documents(and the oldest subscription library in the country)They often call on me to help them out)We then went to the State House(in case you are wondering if we are that well trained to be by ourselves PL1 etched out PL 2!)Then we stood in front of the famous Edward Everett Hale Statue in the Public Garden and finally we completed the trip by paying a visit to 1(out of 2) of our favorite Senators,Senator Kerry!! That is his house in Louisburg Square.( I am often called there too to help with political matters while Archie colors)We would have gone to see our other favorite Senator, Senator Kennedy but he lives down on Cape Cod and that will be another adventure)Well we hope everyone has a nice 4th.Don't have too many hot dogs and hambergs!!!

G'day A & A,

Mum hasn't been helping me blog much cause she's going to dig up old bones on Sunday, then she's coming home in just 16 days! On July 20 - I'm sooo excited, I could pee!

My mom LOVES Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops. But the fireworks are too scary, I agree!

Hi Agatha & Archie,

You 2 are beautiful wires. Boston looks like a fun place to go exploring. I was up in Dudley, MA last weekend to visit with my Grandma, not as much stuff to do as Boston.

I am a wirey girl from Long Island, NY. Gotta run, it's past my bed time.
