After losing my point and shoot for about 5 days, I finally found it and was able to download pictures. Which means that I can finally get back to posting more about our summer outings.
This trip was to This is the Place state park. We have been
several times, and each time it is so fun. It's a recreation of pioneer
life--homes, stores, school, meeting halls, the blacksmith, the
tinsman, and mroe. There is a farm area with both plants and animals.
There is an Indian village and a place to pan for gold. Kids can make
pioneer crafts, ride a train or pony, and play pioneer games. It was
super hot this day, but we still had a great time.
First up, the school. Tyler demonstrated what happened if you
forgot your homework, while the twins practiced at the desk writing on
At the Indian village.
Riding the train. This is me and Jackson and my niece Lizzy. She is
amazing! She came and stayed with us for 10 days for the sole purpose
of helping with the kids. She was a hard worker, and the twins fell in
love with her.
Some water games to cool down.
And finally, Jackson in a coonskin cap in the gift shop. Isn't he cute!
