Jim Beam's nephew's dog, Spot. Grissom is so not loving the posing next to the statue dog!
Mom, Grissom and I in front of the monument of Abe Lincoln's birthplace. There is a cabin inside that would have been similar to Abe's cabin. They put the outside monument cover over the cabin to help with weathering of it. The cabin inside was 160 years old. While the cabin was not Abe's - the land was the family's for a short time!
The husband and I at the front of Dinosaur World with a triceratops behind us - my favorite dinosaur!
The National Parks have these passport books that you can buy. You can get stamps at every park, historical site, monuments etc that participate in this program. My husband is a huge history fan - hence the big smile. This was high excitement for him!
While it was so sad for my grandpa to pass away, it was what he wanted. He LOVED to travel, so it felt like he was with us at our stops on the way home! He enjoyed history too, so we felt it was a fitting way to come home - even if we didn't get in to my mom's until 4am!!! I will miss my grandpa so very much - but I have no doubt we will see each other again one day!!
