day trip with Mikala

Bill took Monday off and we headed out of town with Mikala, looking for adventure. The Eisenhower Museum in Abilene had a Girl Scout exhibit -- Mikala is a Scout -- so we thought she might enjoy that.

The exhibit was not much to see, though Bill always enjoys the World War II exhibits. I love this old  house that Eisenhower grew up in, still at it's original location. (Instead of moving the house, they moved the rest of the neighborhood to build the Presidential Library here.) Later, leaving the museum, we planned on eating lunch somewhere . . . and couldn't find any restaurants. We drove a different way on the way home, through country roads, and nearly got lost. Still couldn't find a restaurant. Who knew there were actual towns in Kansas with no eating establishments???

Fun day anyway , . . . lots of giggles. Mikala-time means lots of playing games and crafting. I haven't had time to finish my new sketchbooks, but there a still a few pages left in this small Moleskine.


  1. So glad you had a good time, and recorded it in your journal!!

  2. We DID have a fun Monday --- sort of made up for Saturday. Turns out I wouldn't have made it to sketch crawl due to more vertigo.
