Heritage Festival

Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of this week was the annual MCC Heritage Festival.  My parents and the kids and I went on Thursday.  Here are some pictures of our visit.

The kids and I all ready to go

I thought this picture of my dad surveying the "graveyard" was cool

My mom became the hat lady as she was wearing the kids' hats that they didn't want to wear anymore!

Everyone (minus me) on an old firetruck

washing clothes the "old fashioned" way

Andy really liked the hand pumps

Merry go round

Another washing machine

I liked this travel trunk

Steam engine

on the train

I changed a few pictures to Sepia tone to be more in tune with the era:

And of course I had to take pictures of the spinning wheels I found!

A great or walking wheel in bad shape!
Close up of the spindle - not sharp enough to prick your finger now!

A traditional wheel, also in bad repair with a very small wheel
Andy kept pointing at the spinning wheel and saying, "Mommy"

a skein winder

It's fun to see everyone in their period correct costumes, and I like that shot of Dad by the graveyard, too. :)

Those are some neat pictures. Glad you took some we seem to forget to do pictures though I carried our camera the whole time.

Aww, I wish I had known about that, it looks like it would have been fun. :(

Sorry Rachel Becky invited us to go with her & the kids (Dan was sleeping) We didn't think you'd want to go since it was Thur during the time frame Jason would be working.
