New running shoes ~ The anticipation

Mckay ordered new running shoes.

They were delayed because of the snow storm till today.

So when Mckay comes in from practice he asks, "Mom has UPS come yet?"..

So what happens next waiting, waiting, waiting....

So while he is waiting he sings a little diddy. Where is the UPS guy with my new shoes, I'm waiting for the UPS guy for my shoes... la la la... If it was the FEDEX guy my shoes would have been delivered on Friday even with the snow.. la la la... lol

Yay!! (jumping) Finally the UPS guy is here.

Great! Now I can retire my old shoes which have over 600+ miles on them. They aren't very good for running in the snow with slick soles.

Thanks UPS guy for delivering my shoes!!

Old Fort Harrod ~ Harrodsburg, KY

We spent yesterday at Fort Harrod in Harrodsburg, KY.

The fort is about 25 miles southwest of Lexington, KY. about a 3 hour drive for us.

We watched the Reenactment of the 1774 battle.

The boys climbed on Osage tree its huge.

Watched demonstrations about flint rock guns, textiles, Indian culture and saw lots of stuff from the era.

Fort at the outside corner.

Osage tree

Inside one of the cabins.

This guy is explaining how the flint rock rifle worked.

Inside Fort Harrod men dressed in period clothing before the battle.

Tents the settlers used during this time.

Settlers from the Fort portraying the two boys that were target shooting before the Indians attacked. The battle lasted 4 hours. One was killed and the other waited behind a tree until he was pulled under the fort to safety hours later.

This is one of the Indians I especially like this picture. He explained about the Indian culture.

Also, at the Fort Harrod was a musuem with lots of interesting artifacts, plus the church where Abe Lincolns parents where married and the one room cabin they lived in after their marriage.
