Slate Run Living Historical Farm

The other day Barry's wife, Jo, took Sam and D to the Living Historical Farm, to check it out.  If you live near Central Ohio, it's a must see and do.  Not only do you go back in time, but you can see and learn so much.

Here are a few pictures of the boys playing and working around the farm.

Here they are playing with marbles, which they thought was pretty cool, and fun.

Grinding the corn
Cheesing with the horse
Feeding and watering the pigs
These are just a few of the things that you can do there, there is so much more.
This place is really quite cool.  They live completely off the land, well the volunteers do.  What they grow and raise, they eat, (everything)  You can even check out the smokehouse, which is one of my favorites to see because that's where they make their ham.  If you go around lunch time, they are in the farm house making their meal.  It's like a trip back in time.  This place is totally worth seeing and helping out if you ever are in Ohio!
Just check it out here
This picture was taken after their 1 1/2 hike, and they still have a smile on their faces.   There are some really great places to hike and walk in the Ohio Metro Parks.
I'd like to thank Jo for taking the boys, and all the volunteers that help keep the parks up and running.

Have a beautiful weekend friends!!  See you Monday, Steve has a great craft for around the house or a teacher gift!
