Walking the Freedom Trail

In September we were in the state of Massachussetts, near Boston, so we decided to take the kids to walk the Freedom Trail. It was so good for the kids to see things in person that we have studied in Heritage Studies. The walk is over 2 miles and the kids did a great job keeping up. I am so thankful for opportunities like these!

At the visitor's center, getting ready to walk, walk, walk!

Outside the Massachussetts State Building

At the grave of Paul Revere

As we were walking along, we saw these guys dressed up in Colonial gear and stopped to get the kids' picture with them. Afterwards we found out that they were waiting to be filmed in an ESPN video for Visa. They thanked us for stopping to take a picture anyway! Funny!

Outside Paul Revere's house

The monument at Bunker Hill. We climbed the stairs to the top of it. It was exhausting but a beautiful view at the top!

After a long day of walking, here they are waiting to get on the ferry that would take us back to where we started.

Fun day in Boston!
