We went to Cowtown!
We toured and explored a farm set up like in the 1880s.
Our tour guide was great about teaching the boys and girls
what their chores would be if they lived during that time.
This wagon would be hooked up to a saw or other tool.
The kids are pretending to be two horses, powering the "treadmill."
Part of farm life is taking care of the animals.
Chickens were probably taken care of by the girls.
We also got to tour the inside of the farm house.
Looks a lot different than we're used to!
We walked across the street to the Botanica Gardens.
This was a little hard for my kids to handle.
Stay on the path?! Don't trample the plants?! What?!
Very lovely place to visit, but we might not go there again...
Our Mother's Day gifts...
The cosmos never flowered. Hopefully the kids take care
of them at home and get to see them flower!
On the inside of our cards, we wrote sentences like,
Whew! I don't know about you, but I'm thankful for this weekend! I'm exhausted!
