Days 8 & 9

We love learning about United States history, so one of the things we enjoy doing while taking a road trip is visiting the libraries/museums of the Presidents of the United States. On Saturday we went through the Gerald Ford Museum in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Below are pictures from our visit.

President and Mrs. Ford are buried right next to the library. 

We are now in Indianapolis, Indiana. We'll share more about our day in Indianapolis in our next post.
