To celebrate Independence day today, our family attended An Old-Fashioned Fourth of July celebration in a neighboring quaint community by the name of, Poway, the city in the country. We had a great time and I couldn't think of a better way for the grandchildren to learn and visualize the olden days.
We took a tour of the Nelson Family home (built in 1918) that was moved from it's original location in 1991 to this historic park for preservation. We watched a mock train robbery, rode the steam engine train, witnessed a cannon fired, blacksmith demonstrate iron making, beautiful quilt displays, men and women dressed in period Civil War uniforms and clothing, free crafts and games for kids . . . all to celebrate America's Birthday.
Happy Independence Day!!
