The Kennedys were out at the New England Aquarium in Boston on Monday, July 26.. The cause for the celebration was the dedication of the Rose Kennedy Greenway in honor of the late Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy. In addition to being mother to nine children – including our 35th president, John F. Kennedy – Mrs. Kennedy was also known for her love of gardening. The park has 104 rose bushes to memorialize the Kennedy matriarch’s age when she passed away. ♦
