Fun Sunday!

This Sunday is Pioneer day at a local county park. This is an annual event where folks can come and see, and participate in a variety of events common to the pioneers of our area. People will be in period dress and demonstrating/participating in the making of soap, rope, brooms, apple butter, cornhusk dolls, quilts, and meals on open fires. There will be hay rides, old time music, square dancing, and old time childrens games. There will be displays of old farm tools and machines, toys, and other interesting items of pioneer days.
Some of us from the Senior Center whittlers group will be demonstrating whittling and carving. I will be carving small owls and wizards for the kids who are watching. Do this every year and have a great time.

Sounds like a fun day for sure! On Labor Day my daughter and I took the grandson to an old time threshing bee and watched them harvest and thresh wheat using horses and a steam tractor for the threshing. Very cool!
