Jill was over one day and helped me.
My last playhouse is more girly, but this one will have some "boy" elements to it.
Panel #1 is done! Three more to go!

Next we made a run to the court house. We stopped to talk to my friend who works there. They are working insane hours getting ready for election. She said she worked until 11:00 last night! She handed the girls each a little American flag.
As we passed Long John Silvers, I asked Hannah if she had ever eaten there. No. Adam does NOT like fish so it didn't surprise me that they hadn't. I told her Grandpa Pete LOVES Long John Silvers. I said "What if you had never eaten ice-cream and you said you didn't like it. How would you know you didn't like it unless you took a taste?" "It is a gift I have of my eyes to look and know if I like food or not! Ice-cream looks good and it is!"
We called Grandma Lois to ask if she would like to go with us to Stonecreek Nursery in Hesston. She said she could be ready, so we picked her up and off we went to Hesston. I love that place! After I made my purchases, the lady gave Hannah and Sophia each a little tiny pumpkin!
We were going to go to a park, but Hannah said they would love to go instead to the Kaufman Museum back in North Newton.
"There is stuff I've never seen there!" Sophie exclaimed.
But when we got there, they had just closed. Too bad! Another day. The picture of the log cabin at their web site is a cabin that belonged to Hannah and Sophia's great-great-great grandma Mary Graber. They have some pretty cool things in that museum so we shall go some day.
Instead, we followed the path into the "forest" by the museum. Hannah was a little worried about bears or wolves but I assured her there were none here.
We did find hedgeballs, which the girls call hedgehogs.
Anyone know what berries these are and if they are safe to eat? We told the girls that if birds eat them, then they are probably safe. But we didn't see any birds eating them.
We found horses and they wouldn't eat them either.

Hannah made some play money.
"Nana, you can have this pumpkin for $100."
"Oh, that seems a little pricey."
"Ok. You can have it for 25 cents."
Hannah has been on this kick wanting to make her own money to put in her piggy bank. So I had some work for the girls, weeding and watering. They got very dirty.
Bubbles + hot tub jets = LOTS OF BUBBLES (and a dirty tub!!)
