Another weekend ...

This is highly unordinary for this household, but we managed to experience yet another new thing over the weekend. Sunday afternoon we went to Pioneer Village, which is a living history museum. Have passed the sign hundreds of times on the freeway, just never stopped. John & Karen Skoog & family volunteer there and had a bunch of us out for an 1800's afternoon. Was a bit on the warm side as the mercury rose to something over 95 degrees, but we had a wonderful time.
Mom, this one was for you. There were also the modern day port-a-potties.










Alyx churns some butter ... sorry a bit dark ... the butter was delicious.











A window in a church that reminded me of the one Dave & Jody were married in. The pews weren't as charming tho'. One of my daughters has decided that she would like to be married here.









Brock turns woodcutter. It took about 2 swings of the axe and he was finished.








Karen Skoog in her garb. Looks like quite a toasty warm outfit for such a warm day. She plays it well. She was so kind to take us on a tour of the Village.

Where is this at? It would be fun to go there sometime. Nice pictures. I love the church window.

Just off the freeway as you are heading north out of Phoenix.

Is it seasonal? -b

Not seasonal that I know of. Some of the volunteers stay through the summer, others head to much cooler places. No air conditioning in the 1800's you see!
