Laurie had some appointments, so Corbin and I walked around the grounds and explored. We found a spot that memorializes a Civil War veteran, John E. Reynolds. (more information here, http://fargohistory.com/civil-war-veterans-in-fargo/ ). We spent some time at the playground and later, we all went to pick up Kalliope to spend the night, too. It started raining and was pretty intense. The next day, we took them both over to the playground. The slides were a bit wet and the kids had a blast flying down the slick surfaces.
It was a good trial for us and the new digs. The next day, we took the kids to daycare and pulled up stakes and headed out on our adventure.
