My parents Trip to Boston - Day #2

Our first adventure was to head down to Boston Commons Park and to go on a walking tour around Boston called The Freedom Trail. Our guide dresses up and acts like a person who lived during the time before and during the Revolutionary War. There is so much history here, I have loved being a part of it!

The kids and I had taken this same walking tour in October last year, so Brynn was the only one who decided to join us. It was fun for her to get to spend some one on one time alone with Grandma and Grandpa. In this picture, she is sitting my Paul Revere's grave and listening to our guide tell about the famous ride of Paul Revere.

My parents and Brynn by Paul Revere's grave. You can see all of the little rocks on top of the grave. This is a Jewish tradition. We typically bring flowers to a grave to honor someone. In the Jewish tradition, they bring a rock from somewhere that is special to them and leave it on the grave of someone to honor them.

Brynn and I at the grave of Samuel Adams, another revolutionary hero.

After we finished with the tour we met Chaz, Jace and Marissa at Quincy Market for lunch and then we left to take a ferry trip over to see the USS Constitution. It is the oldest commissioned warship that is still afloat.
