Fort Snelling






This was one place we've been wanting to visit for quite some time. If you live in the Twin Cities, it's a worthwhile "field trip." We used our museum passes from the library and got in for free along with some friends of ours. It was a great day of learning...visiting the store and talking to a clerk, washing laundry, seeing a military drill, learning about their medical practices, hearing a cannon fire, and taking lots of pictures of our children!

DJ enjoyed playing the part of a forelorn prisoner! The teenage boys with us walked him through the front gate all tied up right to the jail. As I passed by the "soldiers" I heard one of them remark, "Now I've never seen that done here before!"

I have fond memories of visiting Fort Snelling when I was a kid, so these pictures were fun to see! :)
