As promised, here are the rest of the pictures from our July 3 trip.
The girls were fascinated with combing the wool and weaving yarn into a belt. …and the weaving. (It made me want a simple Inkle loom like that - or any kind of loom, for that matter! Such fun!) Steven was more fascinated with the boats and horns. Oh, and waiting for the canon to fire – when it finally did we all jumped three feet! We moved on from there to learning about boating up a river. We started with the sail. But, then the wind died down too much. So, Olivia helped lower the sail. So, out came the paddles. When the water grew too shallow for the paddles, the kids picked up their poles. When the boat got stuck in the mud, out came the ropes, followed by the block and tackle. Doug jumped in to help with the pulling!
Finally back in open water, Angie helped hoist the sale again. There was so much more to see and do, but we were a hot and hungry family and it was well past our usual lunch time! We traipsed back to the car and headed to find some lunch, recording the morning in our family history books as a great one to be remembered.
