This post is a little delayed but as i stayed earlier I took this vacation off!!! Not that posting is work but there were photos on the camera from some of the later Lincoln shows that i did not want to see and be reminded that I need to edit and send to the company. Here is a little Holiday Cheer to spread. Here is a link to all of our Holiday photos.
Well we didn’t play the Lions, we pretend to be them. Our company Holiday Party was at Ford Field and after our tour we got to run around the field.
With Lincoln technically being off the road we have found a way to keep busy before Holiday break. Our company has invited schools to host us on site and we are giving guided tours to the truck. We have found this a blessing and a curse, the days are long, it is exhausting to give tour after tour and the truck gets so dirty. However it is amazing to see how into the exhibit the kids get and the amazing questions they come up with!! Josh had a first grader ask who he worked for.
We spent three days in the bitter cold of Lowell, MA. It was not without a few highlights. The sports arena had brought us there for a Lincoln themed game; a local school had a poster contest, Lincoln prizes were awarded, Abe dropped the puck and a costume contest was held.
We got the treat of having 500 students come in and went to the hockey game.
Today we took advantage of having a late set up time and stopped at Delaware State Park just south of Waldo, OH. The park is a small section of the Dakota Nature Preserve. The trail options were limited but we found a nice walk around the lake called Big Foot trail, no Sasquatch was spotted. However we did catch a couple of Whitetail Deer. They are amazing animals to watch, the squirrel we scared made more noise running away then the deer. Pippi had her own way of enjoying the walk, she thought it was a good idea if every 200 yards she stopped to mark, nasty little dog.
