I Will Go! I Will Do!

I’ve been to a lot of museums and historic sites in my life and I have got to say that the new Mormon Battalion site holds it’s own.  It’s very well done and it even managed to keep my kids engaged the whole time.  The sister who gave us our tour was very sweet.  It actually made me think about my sister Heidi and the tours she gave of the Sacred Grove on her mission.  What great missionaries!

After the tour we panned for gold.  I think the kids enjoyed taking home their chunks of pyrite.

We were the first tour of the morning, not to mention the only people in our tour so Annie got the be the soldier.  I finally had to throw in a comment about Will being a ward missionary because she kept alluding to missionaries coming to our house so we could learn more.  I’ll blame the pink hair.

Who would have thought the kids would even enjoy playing with bricks?

Annie was determined to pump that water.  I think she would have made a great pioneer.  She’s a feisty one!

    We just went there Monday night and LOVED it! So well done and a night and day difference from the old center. My kids can’t wait to go back!
