Town Square

The big girls spent the day north of the city today with friends, so I loaded up G, G, and CG, and went for a special outing. (It sounds like I have little children, doesn't it?)

After a quick lunch at Cafe Express, we walked to Town Square for a history mini-lesson.

Graham spent most of the outing seeking shade.

Gabriela wants me to clarify that she was not intentionally posing. 

Imagine being a slave and not knowing until later that you had been set free...

They endured until the end! It was very fascinating, but they were ready to get out of the sun. Thankfully, Starbucks is right across the street.
