Soldiers and Joggers and Kids, Oh My!

When it's a 70-degree spring day that looks like this, how can you say no? Housework took an immediate back seat to a walk in the park -- in this case, Valley Forge, which fortunately is just 20 minutes from my house.

Being Valley Forge, one is never sure what ghosts from our Revolutionary past will appear...

One thing's for sure: General Washington never rode to inspect his troops on this!

A new recruit is hard at work...

Whether they were walking, jogging, biking or flying kites, folks of all ages were savoring a day off!

Great shots! Almost looks like stock photography--especially the running one! We've only ever been there once which is silly since we're not that far! LOVE some of the shots below---did you get a new camera?

Heather -- Thanks! :-) Yep, I've got a new camera (Canon PowerShot SX 110 IS), and I'm having more fun experimenting with it! I love all the additional "zoom" that lets me snap people unawares; I feel like the paparazzi...

(I called hubby from the park and probably sounded like a crazed gunman: "Hi honey, I'm at Valley Forge shooting people..." :-) )

I wish I lived closer to Valley Forge. I would love that place on nice days. Or just to get out and see some history.
