Last weekend we packed up the kids and headed 20 minutes down the road to Lang Pioneer Village. What a quiant little spot. There are several houses set up as they would be in the mid 1800's along with a chapel, hotel, general store, printing press, school house, blacksmith, tinsmith shop, carpenters shop, and a host of other things. There are people there dressed in period costume and doing era appropriate things like baking in the homes, spinning wool, blacksmithing, picking their noses, shearing sheep, etc. etc. Fun stuff. ;)
This past weekend the village was celebrating their 40th anniversary so they had several special things going on, including the sheep shearing, horse cart rides and various musical performances. It was fun to see. Squeaky's favorite was seeing the animals. She liked the goats and sheep, but the pig's snout was a little too dirty for her liking.
