I’m waiting for Mal to get his act together so we can go to a friends’ barbeque, so I decided to blog about how I spent some of my past 4th of Julys while I wait. Putting together this post was a fun little trip down memory lane. Hope you’re having a wonderful July 4th weekend!
Mal and I have a great group of friends. They’re nice people and they’re always up for something fun- like a Beer Pentathlon! When everyone arrived at my in-laws house, we organized the Beer Pentathlon. Mal and I had an idea what we wanted to do, but we figured getting everyone’s input would make the event a lot more fun. We ended up having five teams of two competing in five different beer games.
2009: BBQ X 2
My 4th of July was such a blast! Let’s just say, many good times were had by all! In fact, I had so much fun, I totally wore myself out. Instead of heading into Boston for the big Esplanade fireworks show, Mal and I decided to watch them at home from our apartment balcony. Surprisingly, this ended up being a fantastic idea- we were able to see 10+ fireworks shows from all around Boston and the surrounding towns. It was awesome! During the day, Mal, our friend, Jon, and I went to two BBQs to celebrate July 4th.
2008: I Love Vermont
I’m back! What a jam-packed weekend! We did everything! I’m exhausted”¦ and a tad stressed- the big day is in less than 6 days, and we’ve got lots and lots and lots to do, which means a quick recap of our VT weekend. (Hope you guys understand!) Mal and I arrived at our friends’ home in Jeffersonville, VT around 4:00 on Thursday, and immediately headed to Breakwaters on Lake Champlain in Burlington to enjoy some appetizers, beers, and fireworks. While waiting for the fireworks to begin, Mal and I enjoyed some Long Trail Blackberry Wheat beer and live music.
