This really is a case of "a picture is worth a thousand words", as the children's faces as they went through the interactive activities on this field trip, tell us what an amazing day we had!
It's the simple things they all wanted to do, like swing! Sad that swings aren't part of playgrounds anymore.
This volunteer blacksmith taught the children about forges, making horseshoes and nails, and how branding doesn't hurt the cattle!
Can you find the stove and fridge in this photo?
A new attraction at this wonderful little museum is the reconstructed fort, complete with gate to keep the attackers out.
It was full of interactive opportunities. They washed these clothes over and over again!
Pumping water seemed like a game....
Grinding the coffee beans to make the officer's coffee.
The students ate a picnic lunch. Thanks for sending it in a basket, like they would have had to used long ago!
See the shepherd in the background?
I LOVE that when I take pictures, some child always asks "Will this be on the blog?"
We ended the field trip learning how ice cream is made...
...and then trying it out! YUM!
If you are looking for a wonderful place to spend a day with your family, please consider a visit to this museum. There were so many places that we didn't even get to see because we ran out of time.
