a walk in the past

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

As we were driving to visit Shaker Village last week the kids were looking for cows. There aren't a lot of cows in Atlanta and little Tess who just turned two was very interested in seeing some. When we passed a field of cows, her big brother JH pointed some out. I see one she said. JH, typical big brother, said you don't see one you see a bunch. Tess gave him the look and said I see one Nana. Believe me, you are not going to one up that child.

Of course, big brothers come in handy when you want to see a cow close up and there is a high stacked stone wall in the way.

and horses

well, Tess loves horses.

as for the older "children" (one of those would be me) there is so much wonderful history to see and more of the buildings were open.

just waiting for us to explore.

I'm running out the door now so I will share some interior shots on Friday. We also visited Fort Harrod that day and I will share those another day, too.

As you can probably tell, I got my internet fixed. After two fruitless calls to Windstream I found the number of the man who installed it last year. He was over here in 30 minutes with a new modem. Thanks Glenn, it is working perfectly now.
