We had a great time at This Is The Place Monument & State Park. We went thinking that it was just a big statue with train rides nearby (that's all it used to be. . .) and found this little village to explore! Here are the girls with a statue of Brigham Young and Joseph Smith.
There were pony rides! Molly was fascinated. . .if not a little scared. Macey is on the horse behind us.
There was a petting area with lambs and goats and baby chicks. The girls were also able to see pigs and cows.
We took two train rides!
The girls dug for gold and found two gold nuggets! Wahoo!
Can you imagine walking from Illinois to Salt Lake pulling one of these? Can you imagine putting everything you own into this little square?
On our way out, the girls tried out a wagon. Giddy-up, imaginary horsey!
