Each year, D. and I try and make it down to the Boston Pops’ dress rehearsal for the 4th of July concert. This year, we were able to take the family along with us. It was a lot of fun being there and listening to the Pops. We also got to hear Racal Flatts perform three songs and a few jokes from Craig Ferguson of the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. It’s such a great atmosphere. It’s one that celebrates our nation’s birth as well as focusing on being a family-friendly environment. In spite of a little rain, it was a fantastic night.
