Jake’s school took a field trip to Dogwood Pass, a wild west “town”. They had such a good time. They met Calamity Jane and Wild Bill Hickok and Rattlesnake Ron, saw all the buildings in the town while learning about the history of what living in a real wild west town would have been like in the 1800s, watched a gun duel…
…and panned for gold!
This was, by far, the favorite activity of all the kids.
Jake kept asking if he was rich after he found this huge hunk of sparkly “gold”. Unfortunately, he was carsick from the ride there, and he threw up four times in the two hours we were there, so we went home early. Ted and I are planning a trip back soon with both Jake and Sahara though!
