Fort Snelling visit

We went to Fort Snelling with friends over Memorial day weekend. I hadn't been there since I was really little and Steve had never been. We got a membership to the Minnesota Historical Society so now we can go whenever we want. Its not very far away.

A Fort employee with Sula, Harriet, Ruby and Eloise.

Up at the top looking over everything.

The girls seemed to love the school house the most. Family members of the soliders at the fort all went to this one room schoolhouse.

Carrying water to wash clothes.

Workin' it. Eloise was entertained for a very long time doing this washing the old fashioned way. We learned the the employees of the fort are not longer in character, they are just here to answer questions and show us the old ways of doing things.

What kids did for fun back then.

We were there for a cannon being shot off and also some soldiers in formation and then shooting off their weapons. The girls did not like the loud sounds.
