So on Saturday, after cleaning up and packing a picnic (and a ton of other things for a day of adventure), we headed out to Tannehill Ironworks Historical State Park. This place is gorgeous!! If you are close by and have never been...go!! It was just $2 per person - and kids under 6 are free. Awesome.
But, enough of the talk - on to the pictures!!
Hello gorgeous! Isn't it amazing?! Now we had to walk to get there, of course. But it was great!!
He had the best seat in the house (per the few grandparents out and about)!

Had to check out the water first :)
Almost there - so beautiful!!
Around 1, the boys were ready to get recharged with lunch. So, we headed back to grab our picnic and find a spot.
Once we had refueled and figured out where the tractors and things were, we headed that way.
And, of course, there is no better way that to get there...than by train! This was $2 per person and kids under 3 are free. The engineer let Alex slide after he told him he just turned 3. We did tell him it was April, but he still let him ride for free. Sweet.
We walked over to the Blacksmith Shop in the Pioneer Farm where we all tried to figure out how to get these nails apart. Jason did it, but couldn't get them back together. The boys tried and I tried. Austin just laughed. Those things would NOT come apart!
And, there are the tractors! There were very cool and the boys did love them. But they told us that the hiking and the train were the best. Works for us! We loved this place!!
I wanted to share the best pictures first, of course. But once we entered the park, we did walk around the Iron and Steel Museum. Jason loved that place - he loved that he could show the boys and I the things that he sees and sometimes work with every week.

Yes...WE WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER.

Back home, this sweet baby was so tired he couldn't finish dinner. Love him!
