We took to the local mountains last week. Julian is well known for its apple pie. Although we had plans for apple pie, we cruised up there mainly to see an authentic gold mine. Luke is going to be in 4th, which is California History in our state. I thought it would be fun to give him a hands-on experience before his "book" learning.
The kids had time to explore the play areas of the property as well. It was a boys' paradise!
There was even a trading post. My kids were more than happy to trade in fools gold for licorice.
P.S. Don't forget about the birthday party pack give-away. Enter HERE!
