Yesterday we drove to Quincy, MA to see the Adams National Historical Park, which was one of the top things on my list to do. We took the 2 hour tour which included the nation's two oldest presidential birthplaces, which stand on their original foundations, as well as the Old House at Peace Field and the Stone Library. Unfortunately, we were unable to take pictures inside the homes. The tour was AAA+ excellent! If you ever get the chance to go there, be sure to do it! I am definitely going to watch the HBO movie "John Adams" again when we get home and read the book that I have.
These first 5 pictures were taken with my iPhone.

We decided to make a stop in Lowell, MA to go to the New England Quilt Museum. Again, no pictures were allowed to be taken, which was a big disappointment. There were some amazing quilt, including a Dear Jane quilt, a quilt by Barbara Brackman, one by Carol Doak, and some lovely antique quilts.
