I don't ever recall going to "This is the Place State Park." I know that it has been around for years but we have never made the drive up. It was Labor Day Weekend and we originally thought to go to the Zoo, but once we pulled in the parking lot, we drove across the street. We only had an hour and half to explore since it closed at 5:00, but we were able to see quite a bit. It makes you really grateful for those that settled this area and what they had to go through. How many of us today would live in a 400 square foot home with 10 kids? It was a good reminder how blessed we are to have what we do.

How about 10 kids in this house?
