Yesterday Logan and I headed on a charter bus to Montgomery, the capitol of Alabama. We had a long full day exploring much of the history of the state. I am so glad that we got to go before we leave Alabama. And thankful for a lot of sweet friends who helped me make it possible to go with him!
|The tour guide had the kids lie down in a circle and look up at the rotunda ceiling |
as she told them about the paintings on the ceiling.

|The bus ride. |
It took about and hour and 45 minutes to get there on a bus.
We also got a little bus tour of the city of several landmarks which we didn't get to visit.
|The schoolhouse in Old Alabama Town.|
They had a whole town set up of authentic buildings which they had moved to that location and made into a village. There were actors there portaying real people in history. This was one of my favorite places.
|The Bottle Tree|
This was made to keep the spirits at bay
|Logan enjoyed the history museum a lot; especially all the military memorabilia.|
We also got the visit the Rosa Parks Museum; which is located on the exact spot where she was arrested. I enjoyed that museum as well, but no pictures were allowed.
