American Heritage Festival

We all had great fun at this American Heritage Festival out in Maricopa. It was a hands on living history exhibit. We got to see a Revolutionary war battle that included real cannons being fired. We visited with trappers, doctors, dress makers and all sorts of people. The kids learned how to play pioneer games, do laundry, identify different animal pelts, write with a quill and ink, and make corn husk dolls. We also met Abraham Lincoln and he gave the kids brand new pennies that had a Lincoln's log cabin on the back.

Looks like the kids had fun while learning. Outings like that are great.
