Western Illinois Threshers Reunion!

She wore it!! We got Little Miss in her prairie get-up, and she had a blast! It only took a tiny bit of bribing, and lots of compliments. It was VERY hot, so we got there around 7:30 am to take advantage of the cooler hours. We saw a horse pull, rode the shortline railroad, toured the log cabins (where the women were dressed just like her!), and watched the saw mill and steam engines before calling it a day. It was so great! Gus was fascinated by everything and couldn't have been a better baby. I swear, nothing bothers that kid! The Mt. Pleasant Thresher's Reunion (the BIG one!) is Labor Day weekend. Perhaps we'll make it to that one, too.
