Me outside of Lincoln's home in Springfield, Illinois
Each summer my mom and I try and take my girls somewhere for a little getaway. This year we have ventured a bit further than we have in the past. Yesterday we left early in the morning for a five and a half hour drive to Springfield, Illinois. We have visited President Lincoln's tomb, taken a tour of his home, and gone on an incredible ten block tour last night as well. Today we will be visiting his museum and library and then heading home. This trip has been well worth the drive. Springfield is a delightful little city!
