Yeah, we wanted to see the gold too,
but they wouldn't let us!
But we did get to go to the Patton Museum!
(we also got to see a full size replica of what the gold bars look like)
Outside the museum....can you see in the bench
it says, "Patton Museum".
Here's some military memorabilia from Iraq....
This was Gen Patton's sweater he
got while in the 1912 Olympics
in Stockholm, Sweden.
He placed 5th out of 42
in the Pentathlon.
Here's the full size replica of a gold bar
in Fort Knox.
This is a fun piece!
It is the model of Fort Knox
used in the movie Goldfinger.
It was used by Goldfinger to brief his henchmen on the attack
of the depository.
Some of Patton's military items.
This was after a trip to the gift shop...
Carson got an AK-47
My hubs pointing out the tanks to the boys...
have I mentioned what HUGE
history buffs all my guys are?!
I think this is a neat shot!
My honey thinks this sign is funny....
We were a little disappointed because they have moved
out so much of the stuff that used to be here.
They are relocating everything to another place, so
we didn't get to see much, but
hey it was free so we couldn't complain!
Time spent with my family
is my treasure for this week...
