Outdated or not, I *must* file them away for posterity. *Sigh* It was so good, that day.
(I can't remember the last time we got a picture together, so this one is pretty special to me. Thank you strange lady for taking a moment to take our picture.)
One of the things we did was to visit Old Fort Niagara. We spent a very overcast day there, but the blessed clouds didn't open up until we stepped foot in our car to head home. I love considerate clouds.
The whole time we kept thinking about how much fun the children would have being here with us so we took loads of pictures to show them. Andrew would have gone crazy at the sight of the drawbridge and cannons and Corynn would have LOVED the castle. I mean, really, What girl would ever NOT go gaga over a castle?!?
Judah was truly captivated by it all. Especially by the live demonstrations.
I was seriously smitten with the tables. What I wouldn't give for a few of those. The oven in the bakery would have been handy too. It was about 8 feet long.
Matt, on the other hand, was captivated at the thought of smoking a pipe at this fireplace every night. Boys.
Not quite sure what a bundle of sticks and sandbags could do against cannons and the like, but hey---I guess it was innovative.
I told you we took lots of pictures. (Notice the word "we"? For the first time ever Matt picked up my camera and took pictures of me! yay!)
They built the Fort under the guise of being a TRADING post for the Indians. They kept up the facade by simply keeping a trading post room. No matter all other rooms held the quarters of many a soldier.
