A brief intermission from the Europe posts to say—Happy Birthday, America.
Yesterday, we took the train to Boston to see the fireworks light up the city.
You hang a ribbon with a prayer written on it…many, many prayers for Boston in these days.
A burger and fries for dinner at Cheers….because what is more American than a burger and fries…from Cheers?
And then we found our place by the Charles River and listened to the Boston Pops playing live in the background.
And we laughed at all the perfectly normal grownups dressed in their crazy patriotic outfits :]
The sky lit up over the Charles River and the music soared around us and I was happy to be home, happy to be a part of this place, and happy to wish America a very happy birthday.

I watch the Pops concert and fireworks show on tv every year but couldn’t find it anywhere this year. It’s the best! Macy’s was a nice second option.
For some reason we never thought to go to Boston for the fourth but we loved it and I’m sure we’ll be going back in years to come.
The pictures are beautiful, and I especially enjoyed seeing the two of you together.
Thank you, Shimon. We had a lot of fun together that day.
wonderful pictures! Love going to Boston, sounds like a delightful fourth!
It was a lot of fun. We had never been to Boston for the fourth but I think it will be a tradition for us now, we loved it so much!
