First, we checked out their heirloom garden. I spotted onions and carrots.
The boys wanted to know if there were any birds at home...
A reconstructed slave cabin:
The boys were glad they were able to go inside. They were quite curious about the different buildings and their uses. We put the brochures we picked up in the Visitor's Center to good use, answering our many questions.
Pierce is big on fire safety, and he was concerned that there was no fire alarm in the smokehouse. Note the bell to the far right corner of the pic - the boys had a blast ringing the bell.
A view of the horse barn, corn crib, and chicken and duck lot-
You know who loves ducks? Reid. He talked about those ducks for the next hour.
And through the fence, we spied this guy, who was really showing his stuff -
I just loved this old barn -
And these overly wooly sheep. Thinking they might be getting a little warm...
Checking out the interior of the old barn -
This fellow seemed to be taking a break from the sun -
Now if only I could get these boys some wheat. Maybe we'd have some bread for dinner...
