A Vacation in New England for Freedom and Olivia

Freedom joined Olivia and her parents on a trip to New England. On Friday, August 20th, they flew into Boston and walked around the Boston Harbor where the Boston Tea Party took place. On Saturday, Freedom walked along the Freedom Trail with Olivia where they saw the Massachusetts State House, Park Street Church, The Granary Burying Ground and Paul Revere's grave.

They also saw The Old State House, The Old South Meeting House, Faneuil Hall where they did some shopping, Paul Revere's House, Old North Church, The USS Constitution, and Bunker Hill. It was a long walk but everyone learned so much about the significant history events in Boston. The weather was really nice so the walk was enjoyable. They also used the subway system to move around the city which was fun.

On Saturday night, Freedom and Olivia met up with Ms. Froehlich at the Boston Red Sox baseball game. The Red Sox won on a walk-off home run in the 11th inning. It was very exciting.

On Sunday, they went to the American Girl Store in Boston before heading into New Hampshire.

Their hotel in New Hampshire was really cool with an indoor waterpark. On Monday, they took a scenic train trip in North Conway, New Hampshire and had lunch on the train. They headed back to Boston driving through the state of Maine on Monday afternoon and returned back to Wilmington on Tuesday, August 24th in time to start the first day of school on Wednesday.
