Walker Tavern, which I have written about before, is packed full of history and they run great programs during the spring, summer and fall. Man and I have taken the twins, L & M, there on several occasions, they have attended a Victorian Tea, a Pioneer Cooking Day, and several other activities. The staff does a outstanding job, teaching, hands on, real life stuff. Reasonably priced, this is a gramma and grampa saver and education all rolled into one. Win-Win.
Over the weekend, Man and I took the girls to the Victorian Halloween celebration at Walker, rain threatened, but never damped, the temps were quite moderate and we had a great day, visiting each and every single display and partaking of all.
We made decorated bags for our candy, we painted pumpkins, made dolls from corn husks, tried to catch an apple dangling from a rope (no using of one's hands allowed), had our fortunes told, had popcorn that was popped over an open fire, colored and cut out these really curly snakes and listened to some scary stories. See:
|The way I remember the symbols: |
Water = travel; flower = good luck;
ring = marriage; cross = service as nun or priest;
penny = fortune.
|Is this story lore or lies??|
|Man's snake has "different" eyes, eh??|
