A Trip Back in History Lesson
I thought it would be a fun idea to take the boys on a trip back in time (a casual history lesson) so we spent the day at the Historical Museum in Caboolture and loved it.
Great value, plenty to see and do.
We joined a group where we did a few organised activities (I learned how to french knit!) before having free time to walk around the town and all the wonderful historical buildings that have been lovingly restored to their original state (most have been salvaged or donated).
There were so many cool retro pieces (sadly there was no antique shop here) and so much to look at I actually only took a few pics (really).
We watched a blacksmith work wonders with metal.
At the end of our morning we visited the old School house for old time games, such as sack races and tug o war.
Wow... I don't think I would have made it as a teacher back then, I can't resist loitering in ice cream parlours.
A train ride was included which the boys enjoyed as always.
Waiting for scones at the CWA.
The hospital building was one of my favourites, all the antique equipment...
There were many, many old vehicles and sheds of tools, trucks etc etc.
We need this water delivery actually.
