|First stop: The Vera Bradley Factory - where the purses are made!|
|Heading downtown, we catch a glimpse of the rainbow smokestacks|
|At The Fort|
|At the confluence of the three rivers: St. Joe, St. Mary, and Maumee|
|Cotton trees! Makes it look like it's snowing on a breezy June day.|
|Jessi really hit it off with her new friend, Chief Little Turtle|
|Connie in Headwater Park|
|Jessi and Hannah with Major General Anthony Wayne|
|Part of the downtown skyline|
|Cool Time Capsule, buried in 1999, to be opened 2100.|
|Fort Wayne's modern art... not this city's strongest feature|
|This is where the city of Fort Wayne started!|
|Enjoying the cushy reading cubbies in the children's section of Allen County Public Library.|
|Reading my favorite children's book at the library|
|Me and Jessi hugging at the Tin Caps' baseball stadium|
|Tee hee hee - tin caps!|
|We could not find any of the city's famous mastadons, but we did find this big sneaker!|
|The grave sit of Johnny Appleseed. It says: "He lived for others."|
We think that's a cool way to be remembered.
|Last stop: The DeBrand Chocolate Factory, where we had this amazing thing...|
It's DeBrand ice cream in a milk chocolate cup, drizzled with milk and dark chocolate,
sprinkled with pecans, and topped with a piece of DeBrand dark chocolate.
|... And the general concensus was: "Mmmmmmm..."|
Next weekend we plan to visit a bunch of parks and gardens... stay tuned!
