Lexington and Concord - Where it all began!

While we were in Boston last week, we also visited Lexington and Concord.  There is a new visitor's center in Lexington with some good exhibits according to Uncle Bob but it was closed.  So we proceeded to Concord and the North Bridge.

The North Bridge was the site of the first battle in the Revolutionary War.

 Can you see the Old North Bridge in the background?
 Better shot of the bridge from the distance.

It was a chilly day but the kids had fun running around the bridge and learning a little about the start of the Revolutionary War!

(And don't you just love my eloquent descriptions of all the pictures?  Seriously, I think we all could have figured out the pictures without them!)
