We've Arrived! Entrance to historical Cove Fort. Ever notice a 2 1/2 hour drive turns into a 3 1/2 hour drive with small children and thier small bladders?
The boys did very well for being 4 and 5. I think the old kitchen was thier favorite room on the tour.
But they were most fascinated with the gun wholes in the side of the building.
They have this cute little photo op wagon here. Its one of the few things you can touch and get on. I love how poser friendly my kids are.
We learned that there were seasonal shoes for the oxen to where different times of the year.
This is the blacksmith shop with the original bellow made in the 1800's
This is a game the children back in the 1800's would play quite a bit. They would race these metal wheels by pushing them with these special handlers. It turns out I have a unique gift... I was the only one who could keep mine up the whole time. In fact our guide said I was the best she had ever seen with this toy. Maybe I should quit my family and go on the road with my new found talent.
