Pin It While Trent and I were in Utah last week we went to - This Is The Place Heritage Park.
It was so much fun. I haven't been there since Trent was just a baby, and, of course, he doesn't remember it so I really wanted to take him there.
There is so much more there now than there was just a few years ago - a really fun, interactive village.
Sidenote: It is located on Sunnyside drive in SLC right across the street from the Hogle Zoo and WAYYYYYY too close to U of U territory for Trent and I! We passed through campus and shot at the Utah signs with our "finger guns" as we drove along - Ha Ha!!!
What a goofball!
We loved looking at all the old homes. It was fun to have the people dressed up.
When we stopped at the barbershop he told us he had went to school and could cut hair or perhaps pull a tooth if we liked. We no likey!
I adored seeing all the wash on the line - although I am glad for my dryer.
Trent especially loved the animals. We spent alot of time with them.
There was an indian village where we explored different indian dwellings and he made an arrowhead necklace.
The hospital was fascinating with it's old fashioned tools like a hack saw - Ouch!
Also, it's rows of beds with quilts.
We stopped into the schoolhouse where Trent wrote his name on a slate and then with other children they stood and recited multiplication facts.
When the teacher discovered that Trent had forgotten his homework he had to sit in the front of the class with a Dunce cap on.
He said he would never forget it again!
A prospector named Digger allowed Trent to pan for gold on his land. Trent found quite a few nuggets which he was required to turn over to Digger, but Digger was a fair man and let Trent take home a few as pay for his work.
I love being able to spend one on one time with Trent and not being in a rush so he can enjoy some of the things he wants to do. It was a good day!
I know I promised never to do this again, Cherie...and this will be the last time...really; this time I REALLY mean it...
