52 Week Project: Week 42

On my staycation vacation, my parents and I made a day trip with the pups to Springfield, IL. Mom's been wanting to go to the Lincoln Museum and Friday was the day. The museum is really stunning in some of its layouts and composition and it's always refreshing to review history learned as a child as an adult.

Since photographs aren't allowed in the museum - I took this picture at his tomb in nearby Oak Ridge Cemetery. It was nice to pay my respects to such a historical figure. And did you know that Tom Hanks is related to President Lincoln? You learn new things every day....

Also almost made it into the project, Governor Tanner's grave against fall foliage:
