We needed to burn some major calories so we stopped at a little park near our home for some walking.
The kids pretended to be fire fighters.
The Lakewood Heritage Center is such a cool place! They take old buildings and houses from around the city, bring them here and refurbish them to their original splendor! It's like stepping back in time.
The best part is a real farm that they have brought to the park, complete with windmill and water tower. There are all kinds of old machinery, an outhouse, chicken coop and a clothes line! My kids had no idea what the clothes line was for!
Isn't it gorgeous??
There is also a big red barn here. I took the above picture from one of the windows opposite where Keith was holding Alex up to the window to look inside. Look at the cool reflection! I was really surprised when I downloaded this picture.
Imagine my surprise to find just inside the Lakewood Heritage Center is a small museum and this adorable little gift shop called the 20th Century Emporium! They had so many cool things and I saw something neat for just about everyone I know.
The Lakewood Heritage Center and Gift Shop are located at 801 S. Yarrow Street, Lakewood, Co.
