But, there was a fantastic permanent display called "Texas Town" that we had never discovered before. It was a kid-sized 19th Century Texas village, complete with a church, school house, general store, houses, etc. We spent almost 2 hours just in Texas Town. Reese came up with all sorts of scenarios and pretend play stories. We really had a great time!
Anytime there's a big lawn & a bird, you can guess what a 3 year old will do! Reese didn't quite catch the bird, but he sure ran far away from Mommy! If someone were following me with a camera, you would see me running, saying "Reese, come back here!"
Reese with some sort of antique press kitchen tool. My guess was it was for pressing cooked apples to make applesauce. Reese thought it was for making mud. I'll have to do some research to figure out what exactly it is. It looks like a huge garlic press. Hmmmm.
