Greenfield Village

So, each year it seems like our family has enjoyed a membership at a local museum or zoo.
This year, we 'finally' have 'graduated' to the Greenfield Village/ Henry Ford Museum... finally... because we've been waiting until we were 'all old enough' to really enjoy it. 
A fun filled afternoon of all the rides we could enjoy!
So for Spring Break this year the kids and I made a list of all the things we'd like to do -
going to Greenfield Village was one of the things.  Most of the week the weather was not really in agreement. 
We made it work on Thursday it all came together... complete with meeting a girlfriend and her kids at the park.  She made the day even more special by sharing ride passes with our whole family! 
We rode the carousel, the Model T's, the steam locomotive and
even the omnibus all in the span of about 2 hours! 
What a day... then to complete it we stopped at the barn where the
spring lambs had been born the day before!   

We may not ever be able to go to Greenfield Village on foot again!

Boiled Peanuts...

Olivia helped daddy make some 'bowled' peanuts...
She didn't understand that boiled peanuts might be a little different!

Spring break 2011

Our first day of "spring break"...
Steve had to brush the snow off of his car before work,
we were snuggled inside dreaming of warm breezes and sunshine days
for playing outside!
Even the daffodils were cold!

Well, you know what they say about Michigan weather,
wait 5 minutes and it will change...
we had to wait 4 days for a sunshine sneak peak!

What a fun day to extend your birthday when a package arrives just for you!
