Buckley Old Engine Show - Part 1
We went to the Buckley Old Engine Show on Sunday and it was a lot of fun! I wasn't sure what to expect, but they had a lot of neat exhibitions going on, and activities for the kids, too! The first thing we did when we got there was get the kids in line for the kids' tractor pull. It was a little pedal tractor with a sled setup very similar to the sleds used at truck and tractor pulls at the fair. When Josh got on the tractor the sled was stuck in "park" and the wheels didn't turn, so he dragged it across the cement pad. And when it was Emmy's turn, they unhooked the sled so she just pedaled the tractor across by itself. Each and every kid got a prize out of the box, so everyone had fun! After that we wandered around and viewed the tractors and the exhibits they had going, like bell casting, cedar shake making, and oil drilling. They had a little tractor engine running ice cream makers, so we got some of that and enjoyed it thoroughly in the hot sunshine! There was a flea market, but we didn't spend a whole lot of time there with the three little ones in tow. The last thing we did before we left was to ride the old steam engine train! That was a really neat experience, riding in the enclosed car with old seats and windows, listening to the chug chug chug! I'll post it up on youtube later and attach it here so you can see!
