Living History as a Family

I just wanted to share some pictures from our family "field trip" yesterday. Daddy is currently working a Tuesday through Saturday shift, so we get the pleasure of his company on Mondays. Thus far, Mondays have been reserved for "work" in the yard and house, but yesterday blessed us with a cool day (70s) and no humidity, so we decided to spend the day out. We loaded up the dogs, picked up some subs and headed out on our mini adventure. After a ferry ride and a short drive through the wilderness, we found ourselves on an old plantation, complete with plantation house, kitchen house, barn and the ruins of 25 original slave cabins. The day was both fun and educational. It was also thought-provoking for Mom and Dad, but I didn't harp on the gory details of slavery with the girls just yet. They know the facts, but we'll save some of the harsh realities for later. Anyway, here are some pictures from our day.
