Last year, exactly, we were in Utah visiting my hubs, Mr. Man's family and they took us to..."This is The Place Heritage Park". It's a memorial park for the history of the Latter-day Saints or commonly known as Mormon people, like me! :-)
There's me with my beautiful fam... at the entrance- after the whole fun! Can't you tell humidity and heat doesn't agree with my hair? LOL
There were so much to do and see! I couldn't possibly show all of them to you! Blogger will shut me down for sure! Don't want that!
Here's what a schoolhouse looked back in 1865. Isn't it cool?! My children are on the right side, middle.
Oh-oh, what happened, why is my baby being punished? Oh, yeah, my teen helped demonstrate what happens when you misbehave back in 1865. You go to the front of the class, turn away and touch the wall with your nose, hold out your arms back and hold a book on each hand. Ouch!
They even learned how to write "July 4, 1865" in shorthand (right side ending in 1865) and the word, "flag" at the bottom. Neat huh?
There were goats and other farm animals like horses! See my younger daughter's head angle? She was ecstatic to see all those horses and even more excited that she can ride them!
See? What'd I tell ya? Look at that "I'm so happy" smile! That alone was worth the heat and expanse of the place! Oooohhh, all that walking we did! Our son was in his element when we found miniature buildings like this firehouse! It was such a respite for me not to worry where they are for about 20 minutes!
I was so glad when we found the Picnic Area! Here are the kiddos resting and bonding!
Two of the three men we were with... That's my hubby and my bro-in-law, Gary after we ate. Ready for more walking!
Ok, we got to ride in a stage coach, or whatever it's called. See me? I'm the one in the purple of course! (Just seeing if you forgot already) LOL
And we also rode on the trolley train they had going around. This is my darling and gorgeous, hubs, Mr. Man. Love him!!!
We found so many tin cookware and kitchen gadgets and cabinet coverings that we just had to visit the Tin Shoppe and here's the rather dry comic of a tin smith. He could deliver great jokes without cracking even one smile!
