Lock Me Up and Throw Away the Key

Yesterday I had the privilege of going with Makenzie on a school field trip. It was to the Museum and the Old Idaho Penitentiary. We had a great time. This is a field trip that I remember going on when I was the same age as her. Most 4th grade classes take this trip while studying Idaho History. It was a crazy feeling to be seeing all of it again, but with my own child. I have to say that I think I may have enjoyed it more than the kids. I took SO MANY pictures and I learned so much. It was very interesting. I'm sure as a 4th grade child I didn't pay that much attention. It was nice to go back. Here are just a few of my many pics:

This was a drawing done inside one of the solitary confinement cells. Our tour guide said it wasn't uncommon for the inmates to refer to this as "home".
















She's just too stinking cute!

I too enjoy learning more about history now that I'm older - maybe because I've lived some of it - he he :)K
