Audi, Carly, Gabby and Josie waiting patiently for our tour to begin.
McDonald lunch after the tour.
The nose of this bust has become discolored because people think it is good luck to touch it. Joy held up each of the kids to touch the nose and she jumped up to slap it herself. I could not reach and could not convince anyone to lift me.
Carly in front of President Lincoln's grave stone. He is buried 10 feet below encased in concrete. They want to make sure nobody steals his body, again.
The best part of the trip for the kids was swimming in the pool at the hotel. This is Audi.
Gabby floating on her back.
Carly teaching Josie to float.
The museum was split into three sections. This was the entrance to the area that held artifacts from Lincoln's early adulthood.
This entrance starts the tours of artifacts from the Lincoln's time in the White House.
We saw a cool movie teaching the importance of studying artifacts and the lives and times of people from the past. It included ghostly images. Audi got kinda scared.
These wax figures stood outside the entrance to the White House section. They were very life like.
They also had a kids room with toys similar to those played with during the time of Lincoln's children and this doll house replica of the Lincoln home in Springfield.
The girls dressed up in clothing of the time. (Sorta, we couldn't find a hoop to try on them.)
