Back In The 1800's.....

Hello there...So good to be back after the long Blogger catastrophe this week. When all was said and done they lost some of my content and comments...So sad...The show goes on.... Last week Freckles and I went on a little field trip to Old Town just five minutes from our house to a Museum to learn a bit more about our towns history. There is one thing we love, it's history. We live in a town where there is quite a bit of history... We learned the complete history of Temecula from the 1700's into the 1900's.... Freckles found it marvelous since she loves old times and is quite intrigued with the 1800's since we have been studying the 19th Century this school year.

The museum had a little section where you can dress up in period clothing... Right up her alley!
 She wanted to spend all day there just playing in the outfits provided.
 Upstairs there were little themed rooms all decked out with items from the era.

She was pretty hooked on the huge plastic horse... Her imagination ran wild as she went into her dream world acting out little stories. I love that about her. It was so sweet.

It really is a blessing that we have the opportunity to learn about our town through the museums and the town itself left behind for us to be fascinated by. I would love to encourage you to look into your town or cities history... Maybe you will learn something new about where you live and never knew about.   
Have a wonderful weekend!
