    Lincoln Boyhood Home National Memorial ~Lincoln City, IN

    Saturday, May 27th, 2017

    This place managed to get my twins more interested in learning about Abraham Lincoln!

    I would say it was a win just for that but it was really interesting also.

    When you marry a woodworker, you get a lot of pictures of furniture…

    Beautiful homestead they have set up.

    This man was so nice and helpful!

    He answered all of my kiddos questions and believe me there were A LOT!

    The meat house had a piece of pig hanging in it!

    The girls did not want to be in there…

    They have actual animals and try to make it look like a working homestead!

    This was such a fun stop!!!!

    I am glad we changed our drive a bit to include this place.

    Check out more about it at their site, here.

    Next stop

    Shawnee National Forest

    Cataract Falls ~Spencer, IN

    Friday, May 26th, 2017

    We went to the wrong part of Lieber State Recreation Area to start with!

    Which is of course a great way to start a long day of driving…

    We did get to see this turtle, a flooded road, and a pretty path though on our scenic route…

    Cataract Falls is actually over 30mins south of the main recreation area.

    I have been there before, oops…

    alieberDSC_7022

    There is a fee for getting into the Recreation Area.

    It is around $5 though per car.

    So not bad.

    We are learning about bridges soon so I found the different way this one was built interesting.

    The lower falls was flooded so we ended up only seeing the upper falls this time but it was impressive!

    Beautiful place!

    Indiana and my sister’s wedding

    Thursday, May 25th, 2017

    I took the opportunity of all of us looking nice to have Nick take a pic.

    It is usually a bit of work to get everyone to cooperate.
