We had a lovely afternoon as a family today. Out enjoying the beautiful weather this morning, we took the girls to visit a historical site called Pennypacker mills. It is a Victorian estate of former Governor Samuel W. Pennypacker. George Washington also used it as his headquarters for three weeks. The mansion is filled with original furnishings, documents and different collections. We had a wonderful guide walk us through the house and give us a tour. We were unable to photograph the inside, but oh, it was so lovely. I would have loved to live back then. :-) I did however get pictures from the outside.
View from the massive front porch. I would love to have one of these to sit and relax on. Serve some tea or lemonade... endless possibilities.
This is the porch wrapped around the side.
Bird's nest we found up in the rafters of the old barn
Weeping Willow, one of my favorite trees. :-)
Hayley was collecting acorns :-)
We had a real nice time and it was very interesting learning about their lives back then. The girls realize how lucky they are to live in today's society. They talked a lot about child labor back then, and how most children didn't live long, due to such terrible conditions.
On a lighter note, after that we took the girls to Chuck e Cheese to play and get dinner.
This was a picture drawn by a machine that the girls posed for. I really love how it turned out.
