We learned that here in our city there was an elephant that helped haul the wagons around. I didn't even know about Lizzie.
One thing I have come to love about the museums here and the historic sites is the fact that they are so kid friendly. There was some dress-up clothing and Miss K was able to dress like a Victorian parlour maid. I offered to get her a dress to wear at home.
There was a section with old toys. It is always fun to look and see if you recognise anything. I do enjoy looking at old toys except this left me laughing and feeling old. Do you see the Fisher-Price house, the one with the yellow roof. My mom has one of those in her family room for the grandkids to play with. I don't even think that goes back to when I was a kid.
There was a nice exhibit on polar lands. Again one of the fun features was a foam igloo to build.
It was a bit tricky but we were able to do it.
