Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead

Saturday was the start of the college football season for our University of Georgia Bulldogs!  Even though our opening game was a heartbreaker, we still started the season on a fun note with a tailgate party at our house.
Sunday was our usual church morning and then we went to the Wollman Park Aquatic Center here in Leavenworth.  It's definitely a hidden gem in this small town and the girls had so much fun.  Both of them loved going down the water slides!
On Monday, we decided to make a special day trip into Kansas City.  We visited the Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead which is technically in Overland Park, KS.    Admission is only $2 per person but we actually got Marlie a combo ticket which brought our grand total to a whopping $16.  Marlie took charge of the map and had a great time leading us around the depiction of a 19th century family farm.  The girls were able to encounter many different farm animals, tour a replica of a historic 1 room school house, mine for stones, go inside teepees like those of the Kansa Indians, bottle feed a baby goat, fish in a pond, ride a horse and little pedal tractors, get an ice cream from the local "town" ice cream parlor, play on 3 different playgrounds, walk through gardens, and go on a wagon ride.
People had been recommending the farmstead to us ever since we got here and I'm so glad we got a chance to go.  It was such a great value and had everything young children love!
