After a picnic on the capitol lawn, we headed to the former home of "The Unsinkable Molly Brown" of Titanic fame. Interestingly, she was never once called Molly during her life. That moniker was given to her when the Broadway show came out, because it was easier to say than Margaret, and it just stuck. Her home was lovely, and we enjoyed learning about the life of this firecracker of a woman.

Our final stop of the day was the History Colorado Center, where we only made it to one exhibit, because that one was so fun we didn't want to leave it. It was set up like an old 1920s era town in the Colorado plains. It was very interactive, with a little school, a store, a barn, and a farm house, and we all thoroughly enjoyed it.
