Yesterday we went to the Pioneer Day event at Nankin Mills. We had an awesome time. We got there exactly 15 seconds after Senta, so our families were able to go through it together. Unfortunately, Carl had to work and missed all the fun! :( The boys really enjoyed themselves. They had many different kinds of demonstrations, including butter churning, open fire cooking, blacksmithing, leather crafts, woodworking and pioneer toys. They also had a hayride and a tiny train that you could get free rides on. Jacob was very brave and tried a bit of duck stew at the open fire pit. Of course he proceeded to spit it all out in the nearest garbage, but come on! The kid actually tried duck!!! Is this my child? Alex participated in the sack race they had against a few other kids.
