Visit with Family

My husband's sister and brother-in-law stayed with us 6 days and they have moved on to visit a few more family members. We had a really nice time and the kids really enjoyed having their aunt and uncle here. We took them to Greenfield Village and had awesome weather.

The girls enjoyed a ride on a bus from the 1930's. It's funny when they are young and can't really understand how far back things are from. Since we used the American Girls for our history study this year, I find myself saying, "That is from xxx's time" so they can place the time in history we are looking at. For the bus daddy said, "John Boy Walton would have ridden in one of these." Because most of the stuff on t.v. now is trash and we do not have cable/satellite, the kids do not watch alot of t.v. other than PBS or rented old t.v. shows from the library. The girls really like watching the Waltons and Sweet Baby even declared once that she wanted to marry John Boy!

We stopped by the old photography studio which is the cutest building with windows all on one side to let the light in. We had fun looking like the people do in photographs from the old days.

And of course, to end our day, we enjoyed the yummiest ice cream ever!
