Pioneer Settlement Take 2

Another Friday, and another field trip to the Pioneer Settlement. This time it was Madison and Laney's turn. The Settlement was having "Folk Life Days" and there were lots of volunteers to show the kids what life was like over 100 years ago. They asked me to please come, so I did. I know before long they will not be so keen on momma attending field trips. Ralph surprised the girls by getting off early and showing up. I wish I would have had my camera ready to catch their surprise!
Here are a few random shot of the day.
Madison eating a biscuit.
Laney trying on Mr. Willard's glasses and looking at the fire in the Blacksmith shop.
Madison getting to do the same thing.
Laney working on a quilt patch.
The last shot was taken in the doctor's office. Gran came by and told Madison when she was young she came there to see the Dr. That really intrigued Madison. Needless to say examination tables have changed quiet a bit. The stir-ups, well not so much!
