There were a ton of day trips while our Texans were here. Our Fireman's Flame wanted the kids to have fun, but also get a little educational time in too.
Valley Forge National Park was first up. There used to be a ton of deer roaming around and they started to cause major problems, so they had to cull the herd. Can you pick out the one in the woods above?
Our little Texans got to see log cabins that soldiers stayed in (they are all 20th century reproductions).
It was a gorgeous day for walking around and sight seeing.
Can you imagine sleeping in these types of conditions in the middle of winter waaay back then?
I love the park. It has a fantastic walking/bike trail and is a great place to take the kids for a picnic and a little history lesson.
What kind of historical places are around you?
