I think my mom is pointing out squash or something to Hadley and I'm pretty sure Hadley's wondering where the chocolate is.
I don't have any pictures of Jefferson's actual home because we couldn't take pictures inside. Plus, the girls were a little fiesty. At one point during the guided tour, we were contemplating the fact that Jefferson declared that all men are created equal yet owned slaves, while Harper's looking at a picture on my phone and yelling, "WOOK! IT'S A HADLEY!" We had to leave at that point.
But we did find a hands-on Discovery Room where the girls could make an appropriate mess. It was in this room that Jesse said, and I quote, "I learned the most in this room then in the rest of the area!"
Here's Harper playing with some toys that Jefferson played with when he was a little boy. They've held up well, haven't they?
Is it clear that was a joke or not?
Harper and Hadley had a good time making different buildings at this table.
This was a really cool playroom. I liked this little bench the best:
