Hello, July. Thank you for bringing almost unbearable heat and humidity with you. Thank you very much.
We all didn’t have another hot, humid sight seeing day in us, so we took a day to head back to Boston Common and cool off at the Frog Pond. This is an ice staking rink in the winter, and right now it is a shaded, cool haven from the summer heat. We brought some water guns and other toys and enjoyed splashing around in the water. (which was refreshing, but a little warmer than one would hope). The kids are kind of missing the pool back home and Josh said, in a slightly dejected voice “Well, I guess this is the closest thing we’re going to get to a swimming pool in Boston.” Uhh…yeah. A swimming pool with a carousel, beautiful city views, a park next door, AND fresh squeezed lemonade!
Even with all the water and lemonade, we were wilting pretty quickly, so after a few hours of fun, we holed up in the apartment the rest of the day with the AC blasted on high.
