A Peek Inside

The park had various homes and village buildings set up for visitors to walk through and explore.
This particular scene really captured my eye,
as it appeared to me as a room right out of the Van Gogh painting called "The Potato Eaters".

In this home, Emory kindly demonstrated how to churn butter.
One of the main objectives for our trip was to expose the kids to older ways.
We wanted them to understand that
we take a lot of modern conviences for granted.

All the homes had a rack full of dulled and worn pottery and ceramics
whose colors had faded but retained an earthy character.
I loved those clogs set just inside the door!
