Spend the day with me...

Labor Day

Woke up, got dressed, we planned a family day trip today to Genesee Country Museum.  I haven't bee there in about 5 years.  I pray that the kids like it and we have no behavioral problems.  I checked my email and swaps on swap-bot.

 After breakfast I fixed Kelly's jeans and mine.

Next I helped Timothy build some of the Millenium Falcon with legos.  We tried to build it with the directions on the internet but it requires some unusual pieces that we don't have.  Here is what we have done so far.

Next I made PBJ sandwiches for our lunch.  Everyone likes theirs different of course: Timothy likes grape jelly, Rebekah likes no jelly, Kelly and I like strawberry.  Everyone like peanut butter.  Add an apple. a peach, and goldfish to share and we are set.

We rode the trolley around to the 1780s farm.

Then fed the sheep on the farm.  Their tongues ticked our hands when they ate.  Both kids took 2 turns they liked it so much.  There were also turkeys and geese.

Inside the farm house we ground and sifted corn for corn meal to make johnny cakes.

Timothy tried on the yoke for carrying water from the well.  Even empty it was heavy.

Timothy and I churned butter.  Look at all the wheels of cheese in the background!

Rebekah liked the barrels at the cobbler shop.

The kids made tin ornaments at the tinsmith shop.  Timothy's has a sun and Rebekah's has a starburst.

The we played all sorts of old fashioned games out in the big field. Rebekah got her face painted to.
