A Day at Fort Boonesborough

One of many field trips that were spur of the moment.  We headed to Fort Boonesborough and just took a day to explore the river bed, the original spot where the fort was placed and just had fun.  We were surprised to find on the memorial stone Yelverton Petyon and Ann Peyton written on it.  After some research  we believe that we may actually be related to this couple.  This truly excited the kids and gave us a weeks worth of unexpected learning.   This summer we are hoping to take my parents there and actually tour the fort as well as bring my father here to see this wonderful memorial.

The diaperheads are not so small anymore!
I love this man!
