This is the Place - Heritage Park part 2

Yesterday was my 10th anniversary, so I didn't have time to post all the pictures from our trip to This is the Place Heritage Park. I am back tonight to show what else the park has to offer.

On the way to the pony rides, we stopped by an old school house. The kids learned how to write their names using the Deseret Alphabet. The teacher told the kids that if they got in trouble at school, they would get in trouble at home. The boys sat on one side of the room and the girls sat on the other side - this helped keep teasing in check. I wondered how similar this one room school house was to the one my Grandmother taught in back in the 1920s.
All three of the older kids loved riding the ponies. Real ponies are even better than a merry-go-round.

Kayana and Callie were really well behaved. They are the sweetest babies.
The older kids learned how to do laundry the old-fashioned way.
The babies were as cute as ever - all day long.
We found some sheep and the kids fed leaves and apples to them.
We ended the day with candlemaking because it was hot and the candles needed to be taken right home.
We enjoyed our visit to the park. We will go back again. It was well worth the cost of admission.
