Baby Girl even had her time to shine, though she chose to crawl instead of walk.Abraham Lincoln's Birthplace. I lived in Kentucky 24+ years and never visited.
The visitors' center had a mock cabin set up for the children to see what it could have looked like when Abe was born.
The actual birth site is where the temple looking building is.
Being HUGE fans of Theodore Roosevelt, we were very excited to see that he laid the cornerstone for the building.
Inside the fancy building is the log cabin that was originally thought to be the birthplace. In the recent past, the History Channel came to do a spot on Lincoln's birthplace and after doing carbon dating testing realized that this could not be the original cabin. It is however, very similar to what he could have been born in.
From Lincoln's birthplace, we went to Hubby's parents' in Louisville. There we found Uncle Joel, Aunt Jen and cousins James and Naomi (who was born on the same day as Caroline). I'm terribly bummed that I didn't get a better picture of the girls.
Mr. Intensity had a BLAST with fireworks - that Grandpa bought 50% off after the 4th of July.
It was a great week!
