After the tour we had a FAB lunch (thanks Boston Birds) at Northeastern and then headed to the
PERFECT opportunity for some Family Pictures!!
This flag was between the parking spaces at the temple.
It was just BEAUTIFUL!

The Bird Cousins and Spouses and Kids...
On the road again to travel to Concord. Funny little side note... they have amazing bathrooms. The toilet in the museum with the HUGE RED door was self cleaning... never seen that before... fun experience!
ANYWHO... Here Matt and John are showing us their Football Heisman Poses.American Revolutionary War. This 1775 proverbial first shot was fired during an armed stand-off between British forces and local militia in Lexington, escalating into engagements at the Old North Bridge in the battles of Lexington and Concord.
(check out the hyperlinks for more info)
The statue looks toward the bridge, and here we are looking at it before we crossed over the bridge onto the side where the British Soldiers were laid to rest.
Can you see the Concord River in the background?
LOVED this area! So scenic!
We headed back to the hotel to clean up and get ready for dinner. It was raining a little bit so we meet at the local Church Building. We had a traditional BBQ with hamburgers and all the fixin's. Grandma and Grandpa Bird passed out some presents. It was so sweet. Our children got Walk in the Light pens that they LOVE to color with, Matt got a scroll pen that has the articles of faith in it, and we got a wall hanging about Family for our house.
Uncle Alan planned some fun games for us to play, and not surprisingly the teams I was on WON! ha ha... I am SO good and SO HUMBLE! After that The "ADULTS" had family council and we "KIDS" stayed and played, gossiped, and just had FUN! We are so blessed to have FAMILY to spend time with!
