Happy Patriot's Day

One of the quirky Massachusetts holidays is Patriot's Day. It is a state-wide holiday to celebrate the Battles of Lexington and Concord. (For those of you who forget high school history, that was the "shot heard 'round the world" to start the American Revolutionary War.)

Patriot's Day is also the day of the Boston Marathon. For the past fifteen years I have lived in a few different places, but all within a mile of the marathon route. Today was a beautiful day and I was able to get a few photos:

    As a BC grad, 1969, I remember fondly the Boston Marathon.

    Thanks for the pictures, especially of The Wife, The Son and The Daughter. Any chance they're related to the Holy Trinity?
