Hope you had a great Memorial Day.
We took a moment to talk to the kids about what Memorial Day means and why we honor those who have served our country. I hope that they were able to get at least a little of that today.
We also went with Ben and Anne out to Harper's Ferry. We have never been before and it was on our list of things to do.
It was a beautiful day and an interesting trip. I love being able to live so close to so many important historical sites.
Ben and Anne had been before and made excellent tour guides!
We looked around at some of the displays, had lunch by the Shenandoah River, fed the ducks, had a little ice cream, and even hiked up to Jefferson's Rock, so named because Thomas Jefferson had been there and proclaimed this sight one of the most beautiful he had ever seen. (See what I mean about history?)
And just for fun, we discovered where they grow marshmellows. (Okay, really they are just bales of hay covered in plastic, but we fooled the kids for a couple mintues.)
