Unexpected Fun!

Today we planned to have a rather slow restful day! Yesterday we were able to finish “spring” cleaning and I couldn’t be happier! I am all done and I never want to clean again! 🙂 Thanks to my sister and bother who came over to help me knock out the rest of the rooms! For the most part today was a slower day. But this afternoon, after making it to the chicken dinner at our church, we drove past the historic cabin that is in our park. To our joy and surprise it was open and there were activities. So we stopped to see what was going on. They were demonstrating cleaning in the 1850s and it was perfect way to end our week of hard cleaning! The girls were able to see how laundry was done on a washboard outside, and they were able to try it. They also got to help beat rugs and see some sewing work, and how the ironing was done! They had fun, I had fun, and I got some really good pictures! 🙂

This is the cabin.

Here is the washing demonstration.

Bunny wasn’t sure that she wanted to do….

but then she thought it would be fun to try!

Working together is better! 🙂

But Pup had to try this all on her own too!

Learning to clean the rugs.

Yes they almost hit each other! 🙂
I liked how this shot turned out. I dont always take still life pics, but this one looked amazing!

This is so beautiful too!

Bunny tried sweeping….

so did Pup! 🙂

Bunny thought that the sewing was really cool. We are still working some sewing, so she liked seeing someone elses! 🙂

Bunny tried on a straw hat! Isnt she cute! 😉
