Happy Patriot's Day

We have a state holiday today giving us a nice long weekend with Dog Dad. While many people confuse this with Boston Marathon Day and a day off to go to an afternoon Red Sox game this day actually commensurate the Revolutionary War Battles of Lexington and Concord. If you have a desire to rise early you can watch the reenactors as they demonstrate what it was like to make the journey and then fight the battle. There are special events at Minuteman National Park. For those in the area you can find more about it here. Mom's home town is a bit more stubborn and still marches on the actual date of the battle, April 19 rather than on the holiday dedicated to the event. Historical accuracy has its place, but I'm sure the neighbors love the muskets going off in the wee hours of the morning twice in one week.

If you ever are in the area the park is a great place to visit during the summer. Check their website, they have lots of fun family friendly, sadly not dog friendly events.

So Happy Patriot's Day all. We still beat the British in case you were worried.
