And finally we took in a great multi-media retelling of the battle of Lexington-Conord. We accidently did the whole park backwards, but the boys didn't seem to notice.
A few days later we drove back to the New England Aquarium to see the penguins (Luke's favorite thing) and the sharks, turtles and sting rays. We even got to see the octopus move in her/ his tank, which is apparently quite rare.
We will be passing through Boston again next week, and I hope to stop and see Bunker Hill and maybe even John Adam's home. There are still so many places I want to see, but I have to remind myself that we'll be passing through this period of history three more times. We have lots of time to explore and discover.
