We woke up early on Saturday, October 14th with the intention of going to Samantha & Tyler's soccer games. Because of the snow, cold, and wind that we were receiving, the games wound up being canceled. That gave us the opportunity to squeeze in a trip that we had been trying to make for several weeks now. We decided to take advantage of the relatively free day by going to Greenfield Village at The Henry Ford. Although the weather was a little crisp, it wasn't enough to make any of us miserable. It had been ages since any of us had been there, and we really could have used some more time - we missed plenty of exhibits. The kids seemed interested in almost everything, but we tried to slip some rides in between other stuff to help keep them excited. As you can see from the pictures, we enjoyed ourselves today.
