the Silver River State Park and had the best time!

There were cowgirls, Indians and town people....

If you ask my kids I DID live back in the olden days! No thanks on going back that far, but thanks for taking us along for your visit.

I do love the thoughts of simpler times, but I really enjoy modern conveniences!

Kim@Snug Harbor said...

That looks like a lot of fun! What a great way to spend the day. I actually would have liked to live back in the 1830's and done the Oregon Trail. It would have been fascinating to walk across the unsettled part of our country and start a new life. I actually did a post on it a couple of months ago. I really liked your picture of the cowgirl on her horse.

I think I could have been a good pioneer. Before I became disabled, I used to participate in frontier re-enactments. Of course, I made all my clothing. It was fun and educational :)

Vee said...

Oh I'd like to try it for about fifteen minutes, perhaps an hour, until I needed to use the facilities. =D

Very cool place! I enjoyed seeing the older couple all dressed up as in days of old.

That raccoon in the pot would've done me in!

Your talkin' to a girl who had to go out to an outhouse first thing of a mornin'. I took a bath in one of those round galvanized tubs. We carried water into the house, heated it up on the stove. We had a wringer washer on the back porch and a clothes line to dry 'em on.

The answer is NO!!! Gimme my jacuzzi tub and electric dryer any day over the olden days!!!! Heeehehe

Thanks for the trek through the past...your pictures are amazin' sweetie.

God bless and enjoy this beautiful day. Gotta go empty my dishwasher...woohoo!!!! :o)

Pomona said...

I would love to go back to the late nineteenth century - no cars, no planes, peace and quiet and lovely frocks! But I would miss the medical care and washing machines!

Joanne said...

I think I would like to live like that for maybe one day but thats it. I love my dishwasher, washing machine and dryer too much! Great pics!
Blessings, Joanne

Diane Writes said...

Hello name mate! I have to catch up with your blog posts again. Anyway, I would be equally happy if I have been in that place. I love it the costumes and interacting with different people.

Kim K. said...

Considering I take a sound machine when I sleep outside in the tree house with the girls to drown out "nature", I don't think I would have done very well in the pioneer days. Great pictures. Looks like you had lots of fun.

FABBY'S LIVING said...

You both look like you had a great time, so thank you for taking us so far back...no, I don't like those olden days, but I like to see them in movies only. Thanks for your lovely visit as now I have moire tableclots! Hugs,
FABBY

Bayside Gal said...

What a wonderful way to spend a beautiful day. I love history but honestly, I would miss my modern conveniences. We are collectively such a spolied bunch aren't we? Thanks for joining my blog and giveaway. I hope to post some interesting thoughts as I go along.
Peace and Love, Jean

I can definitely say that I would not have survived the "olden days", but it sure looks like fun to visit those days for a few hours. You look so cute in that picture. laurie

Mommyblogger said...

Sometimes I think the olden days was probably so much better than the world we live in now. If you didn't have all these conveniences, you would never miss them!!

Donna said...

No way would I want to go back in time!

cynthia lee designs said...

Looks like you had a great time.
No...I wouldn't want to live back in those days. I love it right where I'm at.
hugs,
Cindy

Treasia said...

A few years ago the answer to that question would have been a big yes. Now the answer would be no. I used to think of it as a romantic time and era and now I wonder what ever made me think that.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

This looked like a fun exhibit!

I'd need heat and hot water in the winter and air conditioning int he summer..lol!

nannykim said...

There would be no way I would want to go back and live in those times. Some say it was simpler, but no, no, no, it was a hard life!

Ginger Zuck said...

Looks like great fun. I could have probably survived, but I really like running hot and cold water and a thermastat!! LOL!

Nordis said...

Great pictures and a very beautiful blog.
Have a nice day

Having lived in the "olden days" no...I would not want to live there again. :) At least they were as olden as I care to go. I would call the 1930's VERY old. :)
What a great day you had.
I love the photo of you. Sooo cute!!

Tammy said...

I'll have to agree with Ricki, I do enjoy today's modern conveniences. Central heat and air, cars, planes, and let's don't forget the internet so I can follow fun blogs like yours!

Alicia@ eco friendly homemaking said...

Oh this looks like so much fun! We have a place here in the Nashville area that does something like this twice a year. It draws people from all over and it is so interesting to see how they lived and cooked in that era.
