Little House in the Big Woods

Yesterday Serona and I decided another long drive was in order. Since our last one took us to South Dakota we decided Wisconsin was a good destination this time. I remembered that there was a historic landmark of Laura Ingalls Wilder's home in Wisconsin. So I did a quick google search and found the location in Pepin Wisconsin and that is where we headed on our Sunday drive. Here in Pepin we visited a replica of The Little House in the Big Woods. Rhiannon is going to explain her experiences.

I went to visit the little house on the prairie. I had so much fun. I went to a store, Mary and Laura store I bought a bell. I bought a wagon for my brother. We had a lot of fun. At the house we got to see the shed, the bathroom (it was outside) and the inside of the house. We got to go in the house. I saw most sadly the window was broken in one of the rooms.

I loved the little house on the prairie. I thought the house was bigger than I thought it would be. They had a fireplace where they would hang a pot. I saw deers in the shop. I saw a quilt that was actually laura's and saw fragile glass dolls that were only for decoration of Mary and Laura. I saw what their kitchen looked like at the museum.

I always always always so much wanted to see what their house looked like. My wish came true. I so loved it there. It made me think of my dreams. I knew it would be so good and fun when my dream came true. I always so longed, forever more I knew it was true. The end"

Well there you have it - straight from Rhiannon's mouth. It was a good time. We went to the house, a museum and a gift shop. Rhiannon was very excited and it was fun to see the shine in her eyes. Ciaran enjoyed it as well, he especially liked looking at things in the museum and running around outside.
