We took a train ride back in time...
to log cabin village.
We watched a blacksmith
and ran along tree covered paths.
I wouldn't trade my washing machine for this...
but would love an herb drying cabin in my backyard.
We watched the waterwheel splash
which made the mill work.



Fast forward a century and a bit to Lunar golf.





Who knows what today holds...

BTW - did I tell you I'm sending my kids to your house for Nirvana Summer Camp?

alison said...

That looks like so much fun--my kids would like that.

A Mom Two Boys said...

Great photos! What fun!

We're off for an adventure today which, if my camera doesn't crap out, should produce some awesome photos. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

I really am all kinds of grateful that I don't have to wash my clothes in a pot or beat them on a rock.

jennifer h said...

I'm with Madge. And I'm willing to pay a lot of money. Do you take Monopoly money?

Laundry's hard enough when there's a washer and dryer involved. Guess I shouldn't complain, though.

These were great pictures.

Mmmmm, did it smell good in that century? It just looks like it would smell good.

cce said...

Are you all wearing shorts???? Are their leaves on your trees??? I feel like saying nasty words. I feel betrayed. I'm going to sulk now.

nonlineargirl said...

Ok, what the heck is lunar golf?

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

This looks like some good times.

Mommy Cracked said...

My son would LOVE that...he is ALL about some trains! You have a cute bunch!

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

Great shots! I especially love the last one. Y'know, I bet no Sears photographer could take a photo that amazing. Heh.

GHD said...

Wow! What FUN week! I loved Log Cabin Village when I was a kid, but haven't been since.

I can't wait to take my son once he's old enough.

tiff said...

That looks like an amazing week!

Happy Campers said...

I LOVE Log Cabin Village! Reese and I spent about four hours there one day. Everyone had gone from the preschool storytime and Reese spent an hour just floating leaves down the little stream.

That place rocks! Loved your pics :)

Looks like you guys had a great time. I love the weird colors of the lunar golf. And the last photo is especially terrific!

Oh, wow. What an excellent series of shots and a story of your day weaved throughout them. Very cool. I really loved all of these.

Sandy's Notes said...

I was listening to music and reading this post. It fit so well together. When I reached the last photo, it moved me for some reason, maybe I was thinking of my boys when they were little.

Wendy said...

WOW! Great pictures...looks like such a fun place!!

merrymishaps said...

Great photos. That last one is my favorite. Fantastic!

Thanks for visiting my winners.

JCK said...

Loved this last shot!

MoscowMom said...

FANTASTIC pictures, Holly. Hill country? We spent one year in San Antonio and one in Austin. Wish I'd been into photography then :-)

You take such unexpected close-ups; you inspired me when I was taking pictures in my most recent post at the children's park (in particular, the ladybug picture).

Connie said...

Great winners this week! It looks like it was an awesome trip! The ones of your son walking across the bridge & the last one @ the door/gate are precious :)
