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.

In preparation of her overhaul here, I've been surfing the web looking for stock photos and graphics that I like. My first thought was a wheat/ farm theme (sometimes, I'm a little too literal with the whole "harvest" thing).
Then, I started thinking about how my boys love to bring me bouquets of dandelions. They have no idea that other people in the neighborhood spray them with pesticides or that our neighbor downwind of us wishes we'd spray them with pesitcides!
I found a few things I like, or could come to like with some tweaking. And, I know there are elements of this blog I like (how wide it is) and elements of other blogs I don't like (when sidebar backgrounds end at differing levels and it looks like an upside down bar graph). I think I'm more of a "floater" for sidebars. Anyway, prepare to say good by to modern beige and I hope you'll look forward to seeing something more eye catching!
