Small Town Summertime Sewing

I love living in a small town and if I can help it, I will always live in a small town. So when Tami from Sew Sophie Lynn proposed us doing a Small town post I was all for it. I love History and learning how our ancestors lived. It's crazy to me that there are so many objects and tools that were used then that the average person today wouldn't have a clue what they are or how to use them.

For this post I met up with Tami from Sew Sophie Lynn and Melissa from Made By Melli to do a photoshoot. We went to the Provo Pioneer Village which was so amazing. Each kid was handed a  scavenger hunt that took them all over the village and told us about all the ways the objects were used. The schoolhouse was our first stop and the kids all loved sitting at the desks and drawing.

They learned about the climbing bears and spent a good chunk of time taking turns playing with them. 

Another favorite spot was the well. My kids were being monsters throwing things into the bucket to dump out.... 

Zoe's favorite spot was the watering hole, because there was tons of bugs in the water. That girl and her bugs.... 

I think the most favorite activity was the Handcart. Gavin mostly took the kids around, but some of the girls wanted to take a turn and carting the other kids around too. They had such a fun day!
(Notice how Tami & Melissa's girls are all such good little models? Then there were my monsters...LOL)
Can't forget the picture with the little pioneer girl too!

Earlier this summer we went to the Scandinavian Festival and the houses that are one of my favorite photoshoot locations was open! The kids were so excited to be able to go in and see all the belongings. This house was lived in by a family of 6. Can you believe that??? 


Thank you Tami for putting this all together! Check out all the other small town posts!
