MA Highlights

On Friday. we toured a few more picturesque and historical sites in MA. First, we hit Walden Pond. In the 1840's, Henry David Thoreau lived at Walden Pond. He later penned Walden, the book credited with helping inspire conservation awareness. Walden Pond is now honored as an historical monument, and is identified as the birthplace of the conservation movement.
Rick and Bill
Me and Lori
Proof that we were there together!
Next we visited North Bridge, the spot where the first shot was fired in the Revolutionary War, aka "the shot heard around the world." What an incredible place to stand!
Then we headed into Cambridge to visit Harvard University~what a beautiful campus!
In Harvard Square (the college town surrounding Harvard University), there is a Curious George store! The author in me couldn't resist going in~and yes, I bought Emma a few Curious George books as well as a stuffed Curious George.
Bill and lori bought Emma the sweetest wooden doll house. Emma loves it!
We ended the day with a champagne class at The Boston Wine School. What a fun day!

Looks as if you are having a ball. this is the absolute perfect time for the whole Lexington & Concord area.

I could people watch in Harvard Square all day. Can't believe you haven't taken them to the infamous North End yet!
