Happy 4th of July in Boston!

It's the last day of our 10 day trip in Boston and I am ready to go back to San Fran! I do have to say I did have a blast in Boston, but I don't miss living here at all!!

We arrived in Boston last week and we were at Paul's nephews wedding, pictures of the wedding can be found below. The we had a family gathering the day after the wedding which was nice and we also saw some old friends. It was great to see everyone, I miss our old Boston brood - but it seems like more and more of our Boston friends are leaving Boston as well.

We then headed to my cousin's house in Western Mass. My cousin and family had not yet met Zachary yet so I was excited for them to meet him. We had so much fun at my cousins house, I really enjoy being with my cousin, her family and my aunt and uncle. Great people!

We then headed to the cape with Zach and spent a few days there with Zach's mom Carrie and her family, again another great few days of rest and relaxation - truly a wonderful time.

We then ended our trip with an awesome 4th of July cookout at Paul's family's house. It was a great time in Boston and I am sure we will be back in a few months!! Enjoy the photos!

I'm glad you are happy, Neil. But you should never feel cocky about it.
Happiness is precious and all too rare. For a lucky few it may last a lifetime. But that is hardly likely for the majority, regretfully. You should be humble and drink it in while you have it, as you'll never be able to know when and if it will end. Most certainly I feel you deserve it, yet at the very moment you feel you have it all - you could lose it all. Be grateful and count your blessings, and I recommend that you don't flaunt your happiness as there are a lot of unhappy people out there... Enjoy each moment and may it last a lifetime.
