We visited our friends the Lincoln's in Springfield last weekend.

We had a great time learning the history of our country's 16th president. The Lincoln Presidential Museum downtown Springfield, IL was well worth our time. As you can see our kids fit right in with the Lincoln's family! I would recommend this trip to anyone with school age children. Some highlights included seeing one of Lincoln's stovetop hats, articles of his clothing, theatrical performances and other interesting facts about Abe Lincoln's life and the time period in which he lived. We also stopped at Lincoln's home in downtown Springfield, the Monument where most of the Lincoln family is buried, and Lincoln's New Salem.
