The Rangers offered all the children a chance to earn a Junior Ranger badge and patch by answering questions in a complimentary workbook during their tour of the fort. Little Guy was all over that! He didn't even want to see anything until he completed the questions and earned his badge and certificate! It was a really great way to get kids interested in the history.
It turned out to be a fantastic day. The fort wasn't as crowded as it appeared, the weather was beautiful, and we had a lovely picnic. And Little Guy frolicked on the grass to his heart's delight until he wore himself out completely.
And we have the grass stains to prove it.
