Field Trip

I took the kids on a little field trip last week to a great museum we have here in town. We have been learning about the Pilgrims and Indians in school and this museum has some early settlers exhibits complete with some Indians that I knew would kind of bring our studying to life. We had a great time and the kids have already asked when we could go back. Since it is a free museum we may be frequent visitors this winter!

Old machinery
Squirrel was a little concerned with the sleeping arrangements in the cabin!

Possum looking at an old war uniform.
The kids with a World War II uniform.
Possum pointing to an old potty chair!

The kids were wanting desks like these for school!
Even though the signs stated "Don't Touch" and Possum had been repeatedly warned, his curiosity still got the best of him and he had to touch to see if the woman was real!
This is an original perm machine. It looks more like an instrument of doom to me!
