Once we returned from the beach, we decided that we weren't exhausted enough and decided to try a day trip. Fort Loudoun is only about 30 minutes from Grampa and Grandma's house. We loaded up the kids and set out for an expected adventure. Ft Loudoun is the location of one of the earliest British fortifications on the western frontier, built in 1756 during the French and Indian War.
To my surprise, all the kids loved walking around the reinactment and just enjoyed running around the Fort. On this particular day there were actually docents dressed in period character and spent a lot of time telling the girls about the war and the soldiers who lived during that time.
