I was feeling bad that I used to take the boys when they were little on field trips once a week in the summer and I have not done this for my DD. The boys are older and are not interested on going on field trips with mom. I have a large gap in the ages of my boys and my DD. So while she is still quite young they are teenagers and too cool for such things. So I told DD that we would go on field trips this summer. Yesterday was our first. We visited This is the Place Heritage Park, and had a wonderful time. We arrived early and rode the train to the village. Our first stop was the school house. Here is a reader that was on the desk. We listened to the teacher tell us about what school would have been like back then.
Next we went on pony rides and visited the petting zoo. Look at this sweet lamb.
I enjoyed seeing the old quilts in the houses and cabins.
I really like the design in this one.
We also visited the grist mill, the black smith, the drug store, a tee pee and a hogan, a wood working shop, and the newspaper office. It was a delightful day. I’m looking forward to a fun summer of field trips with my DD. Should make for some wonderful memories.
