Sammy and I went to Conner Prairie http://connerprairie.org/ this past Saturday. It was loads of fun...a little warm but fun.
We took a ride on the Helium Balloon. We met Maria who was the balloon pilot who took us up 300 ft i. The only other one like this is in California!
Then we met Alexander the trapper who told us where the term "Buck" (as in $) came from....A buck's skin was worth a dollar back then....and that's where the expression..."Got a Buck?" came from!
We walked towards Prairie town (outdoor pioneer village) and met Elizabeth, originally from Leeds, England in the loom house.
We petted some cuuuuute baby animals in the barn.
and finally we headed back to the car. This was a great place to take a young special guy like our Sammy. Everyone was so sweet to him!
