On Friday we went to school day to the Lore of the Laughery in Friendship. It was hosted by the NMLRA. It was a good educational experience and fun too.
Flag from the war of 1812. 15 stars and 15 stripes.
Notice what the guy dressed like Ben Franklin is holding in his hand. I am pretty sure it is an iPhone. Yes, I am easily amused.
He was explaining how they would use gourds to hold the food that they were gathering.
This was my favorite booth. I will do another post just on the gourds.
I would love to grow and decorate gourds.
Sean was in heaven.
After Friendship, we stopped at the Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge where they have a restored home and barn from the late 1800s. That refuge has lots of wetlands and habitats especially for birds. They had an observation deck with high-powered binoculars where we could see a really cool large bird that we think was a great blue heron.
