On Saturday, Jim, Brendan, his friend Julian, Megan and I took a long drive to Connecticut to attend a Native American Wigwam as they called it. It was held on grounds belonging to Mohawk Indians.
Many people may be familiar with the casino that was opened by them several years ago called Mohegan Sun.
After arriving at Mohegan Sun we took a shuttle bus to the site of the Wigwam a few miles away.
This is the sweater we chose for Meggie. I thought that $20.00 was a pretty reasonable price.
Lots of gorgeous beaded necklaces.
And a pair of moccasins, too!! These are actually a creamy white color but I took this picture at night and couldn't get a good shot of them.
The boys got to see what it felt like to have a bear's giant claws resting on their head!! Boys will be boys!! They got to pick out a few goodies to bring home. They each got a necklace with an arrow head on it and a hand-carved wooden gun that shoots rubber bands. Brendan also chose, with his own money, a real hand-carved spear. It's going to be hung in his room and he was given strict rules about it. It's small but sharp nonetheless. It was fun listening to their plans for the next day's activities when they got home. These included "forming a club for the two of them where they had to wear their necklaces and walking thru the woods looking for animals like the Native Americans did long ago." Don't you just love it?!!? : )All in all, it was a wonderful day followed by dinner at one of my and my husband's favorite places to eat, Cracker Barrel. I'll save that for next time!!
Many blessings ~ Wendy
