|I love this picture! EL was not comfortable walking down the hill by herself, so JJ turned to me and said, "I'll help her." He took hold of his sister's hand and walked with her all the way down the hill. It was a sweet brother-sister moment.|
On September 26th, we took a family day trip to attend "LaMotte Days" at Fort LaMotte (a recreation of a fort used during the War of 1812). We arrived close to lunch time and, since there was a small turn-out, we were invited to join the reenactors in tasting the various foods that were cooked over an open fire. It was a fun little outing.
From the fort, we drove another half hour to Vincennes, Indiana where we saw inside the Elihu Stout Print Shop, then took a tour of the George Rogers Clark Memorial. There are a lot of things to see in Vincennes, but we didn't have the time to see more than these two. I'm sure we will return at another time to see more.
