Back to Walnut Grove
In Black And White

Some pictures are better displayed in black and white. Yesterday we visited Walnut Grove Pioneer Village once more for its "Come Alive" event with our friends, the Aquino family. People were dressed in costume and reenactments based on the 1890's prairie were prevalent throughout the day. I wish I could go back in time just to experience how life was back then. Nonetheless, we all had a great time. It was fun to watch Dre interact with little Elian and Nahel. They definitely help get him ready for fatherhood someday.

We went to an old fashioned ice cream parlor. It was hot so ice cream was perfect to
cool us down a bit. Here's little Nahel eating his vanilla cone.

Here is Elian with his Vanilla Sugar Cone. He was content and happy.

This little girl was part of the reenactment team.
She followed the boys and wanted to become friends with them. They're all so cute.

A skinned wolf on display.

Back in the day, the Indians wore animal skin/fur to keep warm.
Here is Elian trying on the wolf skin.

Adorable Nahel with the wolf's clothing.

Little Nahel crawling like a wolf.
Too cute.

Nahel and his mama, Nahira.

Elian with his papa, Gabrielle
We took a group photo that sadly turned out blurred with our manual digital SLR.
It's times like these that I wish we brought the automatic lens. I might have to ask my
brother for the picture from his point and shoot.
