Draft Horse Pull and Show / Civil War Days

Recently we went to a Draft Horse show and pull at our local Agricultural Museum. Here is a young Clydesdale. Isn't he gorgeous!


It was also Civil War Days so we walked around the museum a bit. Ooops guess we weren't supposed to be in here but the door was open. The man said "I just opened the door to get something out". Well you should have shut the door afterwards. Didn't your mother teach you anything? No he was nice and let us look around. Here is Margie in the kitchen.

Josie manning the cash register.

Emmy with baby beds and carriages.

A bear skin at the mountain man camp.

Here is where one of them actually slept the night before!

An angora rabbit named Harriet.

Learning about the cannon.

Back to the horse show.

They were moving pretty fast and boy you could feel the earth shake when they trotted past. It brought tears to my eyes!

These guys stole the show.

We didn't make it to the pull. It is something I have always wanted to see. It was hot and the little kids were whiny and wanted home. :( Another year!

walk in dad's shoes craft

Breakfast for the best daddy!
We made an "In Your Footsteps" craft for dad. The orange papers are titled "My Dad is Fantastic Because:" He got a kick out of it.

I hope all of the "fathers" in my life had a wonderful day yesterday. I was thinking of you all!! xoxo

I just found these pictures from a couple of weeks ago. The chicks have quadrupled in size since this. I'm surprised they are not minced chicken by now the way Margie can manhandle them! We bought 10 and 10 remain so far!

Falling into line!!

Waiting to begin!

Waiting again...

Grandma and Grandpa looking proud! They kept popping up along the parade route!!

Moving.... we LIKE to move. The kids found out that parading consists of a LOT of standing around waiting but they loved it when we moved!!! Way to go Jr's!!
