Where Did We Go Today?

We usually take the first day of school and do something FUN! However this year it was the SECOND day of school that was fun....My kids are getting older now and the trip to Chuck E Cheese's, or the park, or a paint your own pencil box day doesn't cut it! So we went here:

"Here" is Octagon Hall (or Octagon House). Dear Daughter and Sweet Son have been wanting to visit for several months. Dear Daughter LOVES to tour old homes. Sweet Son does not, but was more than happy to visit here due to reports of Paranormal activity...LOL.

Octagon Hall was completed in 1859, 12 years after the first block was laid. It became an asset to both the Confederates and Union forces. This place is FULL of History. We viewed the slave grave yard, summer kitchen, and slave quarters on the property. We also encountered a filming crew gearing up to film a movie.....

My least favorite place was the nursery and down the stairs near the kitchen......

My fave place was outside in the yard looking up at the house.

We also had lunch with Handsome Hubby, stopped by the Library and made a trip to Target to get my Nephew his bday present. Glad to be home!
