God Bless America

Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro' the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watch'd, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof thro' the night that our flag was still there.
O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

Plimoth Plantation

We went to Plimoth Plantation and Mayflower II yesterday for FREE, courtesy of The Highland Street Foundation. There are a bunch of places that are free on Fridays, so click the link!
Here are some of my favorite pics from our trip:

The big boys were asked to help put in a couple of planks for a fence that needed repair. They got to break out one of the rotted planks and then put in two new ones.

The day was flawless. Temp and humidity perfectly comfortable. Only a few puffy clouds in the sky. Aaaaaaaaah, summertime!
