Folk Life Festival

Our local school district hosts a Folk Life Festival every year, so Brandon and I took the girls this year! The weather was beautiful and we had a lot of fun!  Mackenzie got to practice writing with a fountain pen (so did I).
In this same building, we also saw women spinning yarn and sewing quilts, but I don't have any pictures! ;)  The girls really enjoyed coloring gourds.
Even Miranda wanted to join!  After they were finished they were able to put them on strings for necklaces!

Next, the big girls learned how to drill holes the "old fashioned" way.

They really liked the animals!  We saw chickens (and heard the roosters!), horses, goats, rabbits, ducks...

The girls really surprised me with their interest in the homing pigeons!  They really liked petting them and Meredith requested to hold it.  She had been watching all the other kids hold the pigeons and new what to do, but in the end she got scared and wanted help.

The girls also learned how to rope a calf and play "old fashioned" games!

Miranda enjoyed herself too!  She especially liked her chicken sandwich at lunch! ;)

As we were leaving, the girls took a look inside a teepee.
We had great fun and I think we will definitely be doing this again next year!
