Saturday Family Fun

Saturday was a perfect spring day! We spent the day at our favorite park. They had a special day planned full of activities and hands on things for the kids to do. The park is also a working farm and during the spring and fall seasons, they set aside a Saturday to show how the farmers would have planted and harvested crops during the late 1800's and early 1900's.

The kids really had fun doing chores the old fashioned way.

Making soap

Churning butter

M is getting so big. She wanted to do the corn all by herself!

Mr. Sid was demonstrating how they would sheer sheep "back in the day".

There were also other fun things out at the park for the kids to do: petting farm animals, pony rides, tractor displays and hay rides.

M looking cool in the firetruck.

Scot sampling some ham and fried cornbread!!! Oh so good!

We ran into lots of friends while there too. This is S with her friend N.

Of course, you cannot end the day at the park without ice cream for the General Store!

The perfect ending to a fantastic spring day!
