A Cowboy's Life: Spring On The Farm

Spring On The Farm

My mom gave Carson gardening gloves in his Easter basket, so of course he must wear them EVERYWHERE

A couple of weekends ago we went to the Spring Into Nash event at Nash Farm in Grapevine. This farm is the oldest operating farmstead in Tarrant County and dates back to 1859. This event focused on historic settings and gave the kids a lot of hands on experience. They had everything from farm animals, wagon rides, pony rides, blacksmith demonstrations, jump rope making and homemaking skills.

Of course Carson loved the pony and wagon rides, but his favorite activity was learning to wash clothes using a washboard and hanging them on the line with a clothes pin. He did this for about 15 minutes before we dragged him away so we could tour the old farm house.

While doing the tour they had reenactors doing wood-burning stove cooking demonstrations. I don’t know what they were making, but man oh man did it smell delicious! I love history and seeing how early settlers live is just fascinating. They have a similar event in the fall, so we will definitely have to check that out as well.
