Watch out, I might be referencing terms like "Fair" and "4H" and "Projects." You've been duly warned.
The Saturday after the fair, was project pickup. And of course, the boys couldn't wait to light some rockets off into the sky. Especially after some of the comments on their projects (for instance, that Nathan's nose cone was too tight, or the fins not glued well, etc). they all wanted to see how well the rockets performed.
We started to head for home, pulled through Mickey D's for some shakes, started talking about Metamora and on a whim headed that way. We'd never headed out that way but we are glad we did! There's a train, a canal boat (pulled by real horses!), a water wheel and all kinds of exciting stuff. We arrived too late in the day to do any of the "stuff" but we enjoyed walking around.
