Saratoga Battlefield on Memorial Day

Today we visited the Saratoga National Historic Park again. We noticed that their bear mascot had on a special Jr.Ranger pin made of wood and labeled with the centennial. Maddie asked and was told that yes, she could earn one just like it. So we did the Jr.Ranger program again...the 3rd time this park. When we got back to the visitor center they even swore Maddie was a ranger we didn't know so she was unaware who we were! I asked and was told that the wood the badge is made from does indeed come from the park itself. Yay!! Maddie is thrilled to add this one to her collection.

Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller also is made from wood from the park!

We also brought along our new to us DSLR camera so Momma could give it a whirl. I did manage some good shots but I obviously need more practice and perhaps a trip to the optometrist!

We think this is an Eastern Kingbird

Thats all from here! Happy Memorial Day!!
