Red Sox World Series Parade

Saturday, November 2nd, I was able to attend the Red Sox World Series Parade.  When I was living in Iowa, I never thought I would be able to attend anything like this in Boston.  Now that I'm living in Connecticut, it was less far-fetched.

The parade was great, and I'm really glad we were able to attend.  My boyfriend and I left our apartment at 6:30 AM, arrived in Cambridge at 8:30 to meet his friend, and were in position in front of the Four Seasons Hotel on Boylston at 9:15.

We had a great spot for the parade.  Instead of describing it to you, I thought I would share the photos  I took on Saturday.  Enjoy!
