4th of July at LHF
We had a SUPER fun and memorable 4th of July this year! We decided to finally visit the Living History Farms here(like Nauvoo as far as it being an old timey town where you learn about history...but on a much less grand scale) A friend of mine from church told me about how on July 4th they have lots of fun activities..so I am so glad we chose to go on this day! It was so fun! From the stilts, to the watermelon seed spitting contest, to the pie eating contests with real pie(Joey and Joe both won! Joe got first and Joey got second :), to sack races, 3 legged races, a parade where the younger kids were even involved, to getting to watch a little bit of a re-enactment of an old fashioned baseball game, it was an All-American day. It was extra fun to share it with Nana & Tata! Joey got some great photos of this fun day. I think this will be a new tradition while we live here in Iowa for sure.
