Meet Tom Sawyer

Huck Finn: You're the best friend I ever had, Jim.
Jim: You're the only friend I ever had... 
-From The Adventures of Huck Finn

 
To celebrate the end of the school year (last week), my girlfriend, Erin, and I took our kiddos to the Deanna Rose Farmstead in Overland Park, Kansas.  This turn of the century farmstead is FREE during the work week!  Woo Who!    Our kids had a blast, even though they've all been there dozens of times.  (It's so large that you can divide up farmstead and concentrate on different sections on different visits.)
 
Watcha lookin at Tom...?

Just a rock, Huck.  I'm gonna try and "skip" it!

Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn...aka Ben and Sam.

With all there was to do at the Farmstead...throwing rocks was their favorite!
 How did you start off your Summer?

  3. Oh how I love Deanna Rose Farmstead. I would take my kids there all the time. We would have take a picnic and everything. It has grown so much over the years and is always so busy. We loved to take pictures by all the flowers and feed all the animals. What great memories. You and I really must live near each other. I just love it.
