Happy 4th of July!

Happy Fourth of July! 
...a few days late. 

I've been busy these past few days because Kevin came to visit for 5 days. I had a blast! On the fourth we went to Boston. It was a long day, but a great one!

To begin the day we went to Sam Adams Brewery which is southwest of downtown Boston. The guy who gave us the tour was pretty cool and funny. A lot of it went over my head because I don't understand all the stuff on how to make beer. We got to smell and taste the ingredients which was neat. After the tour we tried three different types of beer.
1. Boston Lager (original)
2. Summer Ale- thought this one was the best!
3. IPA

We were able to keep our glass too! 

After the tour and tastings we took a "party bus" (just for the ride) to Doyle's, a famous Irish restaurant in Boston.  Several movies have been filmed here including 21 and Mystic River. Also, some Boston police shows. Since we visited the Brewery, we got a free glass! I tried the Cherry Wheat...let me tell you, best beer I've ever had! 
After lunch we made our way around Boston and went to some of the highlights of the Freedom Trail. We took a short tour of Paul Revere's house.

That afternoon we also walked around Harvard's campus. It was a beautiful day. Couldn't have asked for better weather.

Before dinner we cleaned up and then headed to an Italian restaurant. It was quite delicious. Then it was firework time! YAY! 

It was a great day :) And I'm happy to be dating a great guy for one year now!
