Oz Land

After leaving Colorado we spent a few days at my brothers house in Kansas. While there we went to a place called Old Cowtown. It's an old town and you get to see what people lived like way back in the old days.

Hubby had to take this next picture. We visited the funeral parlor. What do you think? Would you have gotten in there for a picture?

The funeral parlor was very elegant. Lots of wood work and beautiful wallpaper on the walls.

There was even a place for bowling outside. That was fun. We got to play. If you notice one of the rails has two boards in a V shape and one end was higher than the other end. The person at the end of the pins would roll the ball back on that.

Hubby now wants to do one of these in the back. hehehe It would be fun. It would also make for a great learning experience for the boys. I'm starting to like that idea.

This was the boys first and last experience at a saloon. hehehe

It was fun although the day turned out a little hot. Imagine that....we were in snow a few days before that and then it was hot. Crazy!!!

Looks like lots of fun! Love the homemade bowling idea! Wouldn't want to be the guy at the end all the time though hehehehee...

Tell Rolo that it looks like he is a bit too early for that thing!!
