Here is a picture inside the one room school house. I tried to offer a little history based upon my LOVE of Little House on the Prairie t.v series growing up. I probably offered them t.v based information and more then likely included a girl named Laura and an evil one named Nellie.
The visitor center was perhaps Gavin's favorite part of the trip. He played for quite some time in the hands on area of the center. In fact I think he reported that was where he had the most fun. Sometimes I wonder if we could skip 90% of the activities I send these kids on, with simple puzzles. He also liked the train. My eldest, he found more excitement from the Fort that we visited after the village trip.
On this trip we did not get to see the cannons go off as we did in my recent blog. The boys pretty much explored the encampment and played a little pretend. It was a day went spent. This was the first time we entered a stamp in our National Parks passport book. We have gathered several since then, and plan to keep entering them. I noted in Thursdays blog that Chittenango Landing reportedly had the stamp, but they were unable to locate it. There were several trips that I missed in the past as I was unaware of this fun little memory keeper. I missed everything from DC, and there are tons. Just incase you are also unaware, these are little books that you can stamp with each of your travels to the numerous National Parks and Monuments throughout the United States. It's a fun little reminder and cool to track your progress. There are websites where people have hit everyone of them or have made it a goal to do so. If you like the idea, I encourage people to google and explore the many different sites and look at all of the people's journeys.
I am glad I did a brief Flashback as I have 100 thousand things to do today, and I am running late as it is. I will re-cap Thursday and my intended events of today tomorrow and perhaps have more detail.
Have a good Friday!
