So much cuteness I canโ€™t take it! Look for more family sessions and blog posts after the holidays (once all the beautiful holiday cards have gone out!)
This park also has a Ranger-led Musket firing demo ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ’ฅ ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง
On our last day in MA, we toured the Minute Man National Historic Park. In addition to its Revolutionary War significance - Paul Revere was captured here on his midnight ride (photo with the circular monument field) and the site of "the shot heard 'round the world" (North Bridge - the water photos), the area was also the location where many American authors lived at some point - Ralph Waldo Emerson and Nathaniel Hawthorne (The Old Manse - pic of the house set off in a field), and the Alcott family, Hawthorne and Margaret Sidney (The Wayside - the house with the wrap-around porch). It's a beautiful area that is full of history.
We spent a day in Lexington and Concord. We walked on the original battle road where many Patriots and Loyalists lost their lives. Anyone else like the feeling of being thrown back in time? It makes me feel gratitude for the sacrifices of those who came before me, and also a complete fascination of the way they lived and thought. #massachusetts #minutemen #minutemannationalhistoricpark #nationalparks #lexingtonandconcord #revolutionarywar
CBA took a quick field trip to Minute Man National Historic Park on Monday to check out some proposed path improvements around the Parker's Revenge site/Tabitha Nelson home site. @minutemannps #nationalparks #minuteman #lexingtonma #lincolnma #findyourpark #lexingtonandconcord

#travelingwithtoddler isn't always easy. Especially when said toddler doesn't get a nap. #minutemannationalhistoricpark #travelingparent #theadventuresofrubyd
Crazy to look back and see how close we came to a nuclear war with Russia. SD missile Silo. @msukyla @chasingtabor #minutemannationalhistoricpark #icbmmissile
It's hard not to appreciate the beauty of a place that inspired Emerson and Thoreau to write about the wonders of nature. The first thing I learned in Concord is that I've been mispronouncing Thoreau's name all these years! Also, I can't get the Schoolhouse Rock "Shot Heard 'Round the World" song out of my head๐Ÿ˜ฌ #sleepyhollowcemetery #minutemannationalhistoricpark #shotheardroundtheworld #itspronouncedlikethorough #hopeidontgetticks
Man. This is easier than a cycle computer. You just push one button on your phone and leave it in your pocket. #strava #cycling #bike #bikelove #dailyride #rideoftheday #concord #history #minuteman #minutemannationalhistoricpark @stravacycling
In my first #july4th as a ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธcitizen, I got to run a road race through one of the birthplaces of US independence (#Concord ) and then saw a few bald eagles (๐Ÿฆ… not pictured... that's a swan, weirdo) while kayaking around. Not too shabby #minutemannationalhistoricpark #grotonma
Tried taking Finn along Battle Road in Minute Man National Park but he decided after a while that he would much rather take to heart the transcendentalist movement sparked by the authors of the area and didn't even want to get to North Bridge #minutemannationalhistoricpark #findyourpark
