Pictures, Part Four

Throughout both weekends there were music programs, and we got to listen to a bit of one on Saturday. We got to see this gentleman making baskets. There were several people there of Native American descent, demonstrating how Native Americans made maple sugar candies, among other things. Many people brought their dogs out, including some of the vendors. We met a couple who grow lufah in their back yard and got to see how to grow and cultivate them, and even how to cook and eat them! We bought some seeds to try our hands at it this year. There was a small petting zoo, and we enjoyed the miniature llamas, especially -- their coats are so soft!! There were also some dog agility demonstrations. The poodle jumping through the hoop is a female (can't remember her name) who is a therapy dog. The standing male is her partner, and his name is Sweet Danny Boy.

More pictures in previous posts, and a few more to come . . . .

We have activities like this at Fort Osage and Missouri Town 1855. Makes me want to check them out and see when they do this stuff.

Fun! That black lab looking dog looks just like my dog Moose! Looks like the fun we have at the re-enacting at Rock Castle.
