The kitchen on the first edition of the house
The boys got to see how the kids would help carry water to the house.
They also got to experience how they would shuck the kernals off a corn cob and then grind them into cormeal!
The kitchen in the new edition - they were cooking something that smelled DIVINE!!!
The sitting room - the kids were trying to figure out what they would do without a tv. LOL
They told the kids that they could look to see if there were any eggs in the hen house and if so they could carry them to the kitchen. Unfortunately there were no eggs at that time :-( But they got to watch a hen with a frog and how she was doing her best to keep it from the other hens. It was quite a show!
After that was a stop of the showfarm. They have cattle in the same family line as the cattle that LBJ had and they are working to breed them back to how the cows were back then - shorter and fatter.
The kids also got pet goats that they had there.
The next stop was the airplane hanger where they had Air Force One Half. It was a smaller version of Air Force One that LBJ used to travel to the ranch. We also got to tour the 'Texas White House' where they said he spent more than 25% of his presidency. We could not take any pictured there though.
That was the last of the tour. After that we went back into the state park side and there was a nice swimming poo. We ate our picnic lunch there and then spent a couple of hours swimming there.
And I can't end our vacation journal without this story - it was one of the cutest. On the way home when we were on I-35 is horrible traffic in Temple we turned a corner and saw the Buc ee's sign! When the kids saw it they all 3 said in unison, in high-pitched squealy voices "BUC EE'S!!!!!!" Well, we knew we had to stop! We got snacks and then got back on the road and headed for home.
