American Heritage Farm

This summer, my parents have been volunteering at the American Heritage Farm near Logan, Utah. So we spent the day with them and had a great day.
We started the day with a Victorian tea party. It was a lot of fun. They said that they would have these parties to teach manners and help the kids learn how to socialize with others. I that's a great tradition and I might just start hosting tea parties too.

Hanna's not so sure about "girly" things like tea parties.

We got to wear different hats. That was fun. Here is Grandma in her pioneer outfit for the farm.

Eating our yummy goodies.

Here we are around the table.

The farm had a lot of animals too. Hanna loved the horses. She's really good with animals.

In the pioneer area (that's where my mom volunteers), the kids made yarn dolls.

They also had pony rides.

This was a pretty big deal for Kamary to get on a pony.

My dad was the train engineer. We kept teasing him that now he is a REAL engineer (instead of just an electrical engineer). :)

Kohler got to climb on top of the train.

They also had a petting zoo. The kids loved petting the goats.

We panned for gold. Some of the kids actually found little nuggets of Fools Gold. They were pretty excited.

Jason tried the ax throw.

And actually made it in the log. Hanna did too. Even Brynlie had a go at it.

Here my dad is entertaining us with some music from his Native American flute. Brynlie was mesmerized.

When we got back home we had a yummy BBQ. Her face says it all!

We finished up with Popsicles. As you can tell, it was a great way to end the day.

Here is Jason, Lauren and Brynlie relaxing in the backyard swing.
It really was a great day! Thanks to my parent's hard volunteering hours, we were able to spend the day with them.
