Trail of History

 This is the reason I don't put pumpkins or corn outside to decorate for fall. These pesky critters always seem to eat them. This guy started chewing our pumpkin the first day I got it. Grrr...

 Today my daughter and I went to the Trail of History. It's a long walk from the parking area to the tent area. Long, but very scenic. The Trail of History has interpretors recreate life in the Midwest from 1670-1850. It was a gorgeous day - about 70 degrees and sunny!

 I found a rug hooker, Dine. The top rug is a #4 cut.

 My daughter noticed Diane's purse. Simply gorgeous!

 There were tents with those that acted, entertained, and other had a shop. This one had trays of vintage reproduction buttons.

It was a fun day to walk and enjoy. I got some twill tape for rugs. Rachel got a necklace and some homemade root beer.

I now need a weekend to unwind from my weekend. Instead, I'm off to pack lunches and work on some Christmas ornaments.
