Patriot's Day

It's vacation week and I haven't been at school all week! On Monday, Patriot's Day, we went to watch the Boston Marathon with my friends Emerson and Ellie. We got there early and went to the park to play.

After the park, I went to meet my friends. We sat on the sidewalk and watched the runners come by. They were really fast, and they ran right in front of us!

Here's the first guy

Ryan Hall and Tekeste Kebede
And two other guys. The one on the left ran for the US in the Olympics.

Richard Whitehead, above the knee amputee, finished in 3:02:44
This guy didn't have legs and still he runs faster than daddy.

After lunch we had to cross back over the marathon course to get to our car. But by then the runners were coming so fast we gave up. We went back to the park to play for a while.

We had an exciting Patriot's Day outside! Yay for vacation week!
