Audobon Center

We had a field trip the other week (I am a bit delayed in blogging about it.) to the John James Audubon Center. This was the first home where he lived in the USA. He came here at the age of 18 from France. It was here that he drew many of his paintings.

We toured the house which was interesting (sorry no photos allowed). There was a room set up so the kids could draw. The house/museum was reasonably priced.

We walked around the grounds a bit but there wasn't much to see. It would be a great place to go for walking and that is free, you could walk by the river.

Then we went to a park and enjoyed our lunch even though it was a bit cold and were able to see a number of animals and birds. The wild turkey was interesting especially as he was showing off. We played kickball and I think it was the moms that won.

Miss K did go with us. I just don't have any pictures to prove it.
