My Parents Trip to Boston - Day #5

Ok, only 2 more days to post! Needless to say, we were very busy while they were here and we all had a good time. Day #5 was Saturday, so the whole family was available to tour around with us.

The first place we drove to was Walden Pond. It is near Concord, MA only about 25 minutes from downtown Boston. It is a really beautiful and peaceful place, I can see why Thoreau would want to live there!

After leaving Walden Pond we drove through the town of Concord to go see where the Revolutionary War started.

The first shots were fired across this bridge - The Shot Heard 'Round the World~

Monuments to the people who died in the first battle of the Revolutionary War.

After touring this historical site we dropped Chaz and Jace off at a friends birthday party and then we headed to Cape Cod.

We decided to stop in the town of Plymouth and do a little sight seeing. We went to see Plymouth Rock. It really is just a little rock!

We then visited the Mayflower II - a replication of the Mayflower.

What a fun and exhausting day!
