On the way home we stopped by the Massachusetts Veteran Memorial Tower and paid a little tribute to our veterans. The tower is located on Mount Greylock--the highest point in Mass. The view is expansive with lots of rolling green hills.
(Did you notice Stella's bandage on her forehead? She and her little brother decided to jump off stairs from complete boredom as we were packing up the car to head out. She jumped a few stairs then whacked her head on one of our radiators. Not a pretty sight and got nine stitches. Good times. Four hours later we were able to leave for our trip and she was right back to normal.)
