Day Two:

We started off our day by stopping by the Mars/Dove factory to see if they gave free tours…no such luck (hey, it was worth a shot).  Next, we were off to visit the Mennonite Information Center and Biblical Tabernacle.  It was sooo cool to go inside an exact replica of the tabernacle and learn more about the details.  No pictures were allowed inside.  The boys listened attentively (for the most part – LOL) and I hope that they’ll remember some of what they learned when we study the tabernacle later this year.  We were excited to find “real” shofars in the gift shop…too bad they were over $200 each!  We had a picnic lunch and decided to try a farm tour after seeing a brochure about it.  It was called Farmland Fun at Verdant View ( and it ended up being everybody’s FAVORITE activity that we did all week :)!  The boys got to catch chickens in the chicken coop (HILARIOUS), pet goats and sheep, play with “Scooby” the farm owner’s dog, milk a cow, feed calves their dinner, go on a wagon ride, swing on a tree swing, play with kittens, and learn the ins and outs of a dairy farm.  It was AWESOME!!!
