Jax, Paiton and I had a great time today, visiting the Deanna Rose Farmstead
in Overland Park, Kansas.
We got there pretty early, just after it opened at 9 AM.
We missed the milking demonstration, but we got to see some little calves, which Paiton loved.
I found this to be very interesing, it was a representation (full-size) of a lodge of the Kanza people, who lived here years ago. The lodge could allow for about 40 people in it for living.
Please notice that plants were growing on the lodge roof.
There was some tractor racing.
Some pony riding.
Some fishing. (thank heavens we didn't catch anything)
Some baby duck watching.
Some turtle watching
We pretended to be caterpillars and butterflies
We saw a bald eagle
And some black swans...
We went for a hike in the woods (Paiton was scared)
And Grandma's favorite part... a hayride, on the most comfortable wagon, on a comfortable journey through the woods pulled by two beautiful Belgians...
Frankie and Rowdy
And I nearly forgot... we mined for gold too, and got to bring home all our pretty stones!
Grandma's exhausted, do I need to say more?
The kids had a great time, and I'll think twice before I go anywhere with them alone again!
I don't know where all the energy comes from.
They did have about 40 little goats there, some with wattles under their chins... I understand now how people hoard little goats.
The kids fed them, and liked being in with them, but then were happy to come home to Kody and Kaycee.
Paiton especially has an affinity for little animals.
They do for her, too.
I hope you enjoyed this look at the Deanna Rose Farmstead, and can tolerate my cheering about my grands for once!
