A day at Tryon Palace

Back on June 8th, we enjoyed a field trip on our own to Tryon Palace. We had been wanting to tour the inside for quite sometime and what better day to do than on Jenny's birthday! We stayed up ALL NIGHT making costumes for the kids.  I had made the girls colonial dresses a few years ago, but I had to make Kylie a new one and let out hems and such in the other two.  And Jenny creativly came up with/made costumes for her boys at the last minute. Literally, I laid down at 8:30 that morning! We were exhausted, but they turned out so great! It was a fun day and the kids enjoyed dressing Colonial style.  The girls found the rooms and the decor inside so intriguing.
Definitely the best dressed kids at Tryon Palace! ;-)  (at least jenny and i think so! :-)

When we got to the History Center, we noticed Kayla was on one of the posters.  Our homeschool group took a field trip there when it first opened.  They used us for guinea pigs so to speak.  They had news folks there and education videographers there.  , Kylie is on the Tryon Palace website.  You can view the video here.  She was also on the front page of the News and Observer.

We love the new history center!  It's state of the art w/ all the interactive stations.
