The great thing about where we live is that there’s always lots to do! This weekend was no exception. Our entire county was participating in Heritage Days. I perused the website and saw a cute little local museum dedicated to dairy farmers and the history of dairy production in our county. The museum was actually called the MOOseum, which I thought was pretty cute.
Admittedly I expected there to be live dairy cows but we were met with large replicas instead.
There was lots of antique equipment put out on display, like this robotic milking machine.
The best part was the cow-milking simulation station. We taught the boys how to milk the fake cow (only water came out, obviously). This might come in handy when I inevitably purchase a dairy cow to live in our backyard. I can only imagine how much milk the boys will go through when they’re teenagers!
Outside there were a few animals from a local farm that we were able to feed and pet.
Next to the MOOseum was a cute little playground. We never pass up the opportunity to swing when there are two bucket swings available. So often we see playgrounds with only one baby swing! The horror!
was really craving ice cream decided to continue the educational dairy-related afternoon and introduce the boys to their first ice cream cone! The boys were instantly hooked to the creamy vanilla goodness.
Then they really got the hang of it and it looked like this was their 100th cone and not their first.
As the saying goes… all good things must come to an end. This was not a easy lesson for Caleb who was absolutely devastated when he finished his cone.
The boys made such a ruckus that a friendly employee brought them a dish of watermelon Italian Ice on the house to appease them! All in all it was a successful afternoon and a great way to cap off their last weekend as infants. Saturday brings toddlerhood and inevitably lots of reminiscing about the day our lives changed forever, one short year ago.
