Lasting Memories- Celebrate Nature (Abe Martin Lodge)

Hello! Our theme this week at Lasting Memories  is to "Celebrate Nature"  When I taught kids with emotional handicaps we spent hours a tour local river.My curriculum centered around it and we used real world experiences instead of textbooks to learn. We had so much fun!

One of my favorite places to go in Indiana is Brown County.  It's an easy drive from our home, so it makes an easy overnight trip. This layout is about the Abe Martin Lodge at the State Park. Abe Martin is a cartoon figure from the 30's. The lodge itself gives you a feel that you are lost in time and has artwork that celebrates it's history, while the waterpark celebrates it's current place in time.  We love it there:)
