Atlanta History Center

While Mom and Dad were here, we spent a day at the Atlanta History Center. I had been once before with my mother-in-law, when I came out to visit Georgia before Keith and I were married. I forgot how much there is to see and do there!

 It's actually a pretty cool place. As part of the admission to the museum, you get to tour the Swan Mansion, which is an awesome house from the 1920's. This is a picture of the back of the house, which is actually where the entrance is.

This is the front of the house. Isn't it gorgeous?? 

They also had this cute little farmhouse you could tour with animals, a blacksmith, a carpenter, etc. The guy doing the demonstration was very impressed with Dad's carpentry skills. 

Dad stopped to make this cute little stool....okay not really. This stool was already there and I just took a picture of it. (But I'm sure he could have made one if he wanted to...)

Mom made fast friends with Buster, a little sheep at the Farm. 

She sat and scratched his ears, like you would a dog, for a good 5 minutes. A true animal lover.

We also went through the museum, which had a huge civil war exhibit. (It's always interesting to get the southern perspective on the war.)

After we came home, Grace got to read some books with Grandpa. She sure is lucky to have such fun grandparents!
