    Shepherd’s Cross ~Claremore, OK

    Friday, October 27th, 2017

    Shepherd’s Cross has a really pretty farm with friendly people.

    We went to their pumpkin patch while we had a friend staying with us two weeks ago.

    This is a running farm so I do believe they have electric fences going, so be careful with little ones.

    My strategy when we have extra kids around?

    All the fun things possible.

    As little downtime as we can manage.

    HA

    So, of course, I did quick face paint before we went.

    My nine year old requested a 19th century English Gentlemen.

    They have a lot of free things to do, including games and a hay maze.

    This is another great museum on the Oklahoma Museum Network.

    amusDSC_8333

    It has a giant playground outside.

    They have also expanded since the last time we went!

    amusDSC_8365 amusDSC_8366 amusDSC_8369 amusDSC_8372 amusDSC_8376 amusDSC_8381 amusDSC_8388

    They had a workshop area to take apart electronics and build things!

    amusDSC_8392

    Little Bit was not happy about taking apart a toy instead of playing with it.

    The boys really liked it though!

    I let Nick supervise the sharp objects…

    Little House on the Prairie Museum ~Independence, KS

    We stopped at the Little House on the Prairie Museum on our way up to see family in Minnesota.

    Laura Ingalls Wilder lived here with her parents when she was a child and it inspired the series of books she later wrote.

    alittleDSC_8705 alittleDSC_8710 alittleDSC_8711

    They have an old post office and school that they moved to the location as well.

    It was really neat to see the cabin that is a replica of the one she lived in.

    alittleDSC_8741

    I am hoping that seeing the spot that inspired the books would help them come to life so I bought these two while there!

    I found it really interesting that in the books they journey from Minnesota to Kansas and we were heading to Minnesota as well!
