This past weekend we decided to go on a trip to a state park
We decided to go to Ft. Macon. It is about 2 hours from our house, and the first state park here in North Carolina.
It might seem an ominous choice at first as an old ft. from the revolutionary and civil war era. It has cannons that seemingly face in your direction as you first pull up.
But, it is a really neat place to visit because it has a lot of history and a large number of rooms and places to explore.
But you have to watch the edge with small children because there really are no guard rails in place. As the sign says as you enter the park “This fort was built for times of war and not for your safety”
Everyone had fun running around, although the toddlers desired more free reign than we gave them.
Our oldest boy especially loved getting up on the cannons.
I think we will try to do better about getting the whole family in a picturet in the future but we were able to get the children to sit still for a second.
