60. Kokomo, IN to Lincoln City, IN; May 27 – 28, 2016

We drove south to catch the Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial.  The grounds were gorgeous and there were only a few other visitors.  We went through the visitor center to pick up the junior ranger program books for Zach and Anna.

We walked out to the model of the home Lincoln grew up in.  We climbed the ladder to the attic with the cots.

Anna tried, and failed, to milk a cow.  Kris then showed off her wicked farm skills.

We hiked a half-mile loop through the forest.

The kids completed the junior ranger program, got their badges, and we drove to our hotel in Jasper, Indiana.

In the morning, we drove to the George Rogers Clark National Historic Park.  We had gone there not long after we moved to Indiana, but the kids had not completed the junior ranger program.

The first time we went, there were no other visitors.  This time, we couldn’t find parking for blocks and blocks.  We happened to have visited on rendezvous weekend.  We saw lots of revolutionary war tents and costumed soldiers.  The kids wouldn’t eat any of the food.

But they got to do the junior ranger program!
