So, we splurged and got our family a season pass to This is the Place Heritage Park. A friend told me that Citydeals.com had $50 gift certificates to TitPMP on sale for $25 plus 15% off. So I had Ryan buy one and I bought one (since it's one per household), then we combined them and bought a membership. I love getting a $90 membership for $43 (and I still have $10 credit too)!
These pics are from the morning we spent there with some friends a few weeks back. Honestly, I've never seen my kids more willing & happy to do chores :)
(Jen & Liz = click here to see ALL the pics. There are a lot!)
A, Berlin, K, K waiting patiently for the train ride to begin.
The boys waiting patiently (L, Fin, J)
The girls giddy with excitement as they pet the goat. There were also sheep, a baby goat, pigs, bunny, cows, horses, and a few other animals to see.
This game was so fun. This is how Pioneers taught the children to milk cows. If you pull the rope down and slightly to the side the wooden bear magically climbs the rope. If Fin were milking a real cow, he'd have no milk and she'd be one sore creature (and not too happy either).
Berlin doing her laundry. She didn't want to put down the little wooden iron. Guess I know what to have Santa get her for Christmas this year.
Doing some laundry (Thank heaven for modern day washing machines)
Finley hanging the clothes out to dry.
