Recently the kids and I took part in a visit to Dawson Creek’s Pioneer Village. It hadn’t opened yet for the season, but the homeschool group was given a personal tour and we enjoyed poking around the heritage buildings on the site and hearing about their histories.
The gentleman who opened the fire hall had actually been a firefighter in Dawson Creek in the 60’s and had a lot to say about how things have changed over the years, and his personal fight to save the two fire trucks that are on display at the Village.
I love antiques and would have loved to take home some of those old pieces of furniture. My plan for my new studio is to decorate it in the style of an old-timey general store, and so a trip like this is always good for ideas.
The kids enjoyed trying out the desks in the two one-room schoolhouses on the site, and my son was the perfect model for the dunce cap! He’s a clown.
This is just a quick post – it’s a beautiful Saturday and I’m going to dash outside and help my girls fill some hanging baskets with annuals to decorate our home. How we are loving the spring, now that it is finally here!
