As a child, Lucy's mother was fascinated by this structure which used to rest on top of a downtown building. It has been placed on the grounds where, in1791, George Washington reviewed the "troops" at the Academy which later became my high school.
Before we moved back to our hometown, we often came for visits and a little sight-seeing.
On today's walk, Lucy discovered it. She alternately danced, sang and pretended it was the Baby Jesus's Stable. I couldn't resist a little video to remind myself of how most of my day is spent.
Every day with a two and a half year old teaches me to make new discoveries and then to pretend them into something different.
