The Bunker Hill Monument, Charlestown, Massachusetts

My Great Great Grandparents lived and died in Charlestown.  
Family legend has it that Great Great Grandfather Patrick set the original bars 
in upper windows of the Bunker Hill Monument. 

I took this photo one week ago, at our Great Nephew's birthday party, 
which was held beside the Monument...a common practice of town residents.

PhD*Son is one of the 70 who qualified to do this!

They're going to run up Vermont's highest mountain, then run down it. Should be warming through the 70's to about mid 80's, with thunderstorms arriving in the afternoon. However, the race is run 6:30am to 1:30pm, so they should be okay.  Well, except for those places in the course where to fall could mean serious injury or death.  Yeah, moms just love when their kids do things like this. Ha!
