Sometimes, I do a post that is mostly for myself....to document something that has taken place....sort of like a journal with pictures!!! That's what this post is all about.
Yesterday, Monday, November 12th, 2012, I went with Jess and the boys on a "field trip", along with other Moms and Dads and kiddos who belong to a local home school co-op, to the Great Smoky Mountain Heritage Center in Townsend, Tennessee. We had such a great day....the first outing for just the four of us in a long time!!! Here are some of the pics I took to document the day. I'm not in any of them 'cause I was the "photog"!!
The sky as I left home Monday morning!!!
‘Red sky at night means fair weather tomorrow;
red sky in the morning means foul weather all day.’
And, it did rain later in the day with a lot of wind!!!
A model of the museum
Our big boy checking out the model.
We started out watching a movie about the Great Smoky Mountains National Park narrated by Ms. Edye Ellis. You local folk will remember her as a WBIR news anchor several years ago.
Pictures of several old cabins and churches that were transported to the center and some of them re-built on site.
Beautiful stacked stone chimney
A cantilever barn
A little sign on one of the buildings that was once a motel.
It was explained that there used to be half cent coins....
....did y'all know that?!?!?
A spinning wheel
So grateful for indoor plumbing!!!
The most handsome 6 year old in the whole wide world!!!
Another view of the cantilever barn
An apple press
Just loved this old wooden window....especially the reflection
A raccoon hide....ouch!!!
Isn't this fireplace gorgeous?!?
Ignore the electrical plug in this pic....;-)
Another gorgeous chimney
The old church
The building on the right of this old barn is a corn crib.
One of the little kids asked if this is where they make corn!!!
I had to smile!!!
Our precious baby GRANDson....he is so very kind!!
(name that tune....;-)
Playing with some of the old pioneer toys
An old school room
For lunch we went to Pizza Hut.....
....here's a pose of Saw showing his rock star hair!!!
And, this one won't let you take his picture at all unless you can catch him off-guard....hence, the blur!!!
We had a great day.
I am so blessed to get to spend so much time with our GRANDsons.
Jess tells me that they get up every morning and ask,
"Do we get to see Nannie today?"
Sure does do this Nannie's heart good!!!
And, I can't wait 'till baby girl asks the same thing!!!
Thank you, Lord, for your blessings on me!!!
In HIS Most Precious Love....and with mine, too!!!
