A Day Off and a Day Out

To continue the posts re our vacation, we took Wednesday off as a leisure day.  After two days on the road, we definitely needed it! Didn’t leave the house until dinner time. 🙂  On Thursday however, we hit the streets again – with a visit to the Greensboro Public Library and a visit to the Greensboro Children’s Museum.

I wanted to go to the public library so that I could see what they had in their genealogy collection.  Given the volunteer work I do for the NCGenWeb Project, I wanted to take a look at their resources. I also wanted to pull a few obituaries from the local newspaper.  Fortunately, they have digital microfilm machines but unfortunately, I quickly tired of scrolling through newspapers. So, I didn’t get as many as I’d originally planned.

Their monograph collection is good so I browsed and found some books that I didn’t know existed and identified a few follow-up tasks. Kaleya was a trooper while there and watched Netflix while I was busy working away.

After the public library, we jaunted across the street and went to the Greensboro Children’s Museum – that was great! It is basically a big play area with all kinds of scenarios in place – a train depot, a plane, a campground, a firetruck, racing car, wall climbing, post office, health clinic, construction zone, television news station and more. It was great fun!

We then topped the afternoon off with frozen yogurt from Sweet Frog.

What a great day! Only a few of our pictures are in this post – the rest can be viewed here.
