Ford's Theater and more Mabel

We went to DC yesterday afternoon to see Ford's theater, where Abraham Lincoln was shot. The balcony behind Crystal and me is a rebuilt facsimile of the site.

The Peterson house across the street from the theater has the original room where the president passed away.

The stairwell had a three-story stack of books written about Lincoln! It made me want to write another one!
Our home teachers dropped by in the evening, much to Mabel's chagrin! They made her a little nervous!

Crystal and Ed had fun with Mabel while Brittany and John went across the street to the Maisel Military Museum. If you watch the video, wait till the end to hear Mabel's happy sigh of contentment!
