Buffalo Gap

While we were in Texas for Thanksgiving one of our adventures was to Buffalo Gap. It was a railroad town that basically dried up when they moved the County Seat to Abilene. It is preserved though so you can see what it was like. The kids were actually really interested in all of the antique items on display. There was a home, church, jail, barn and even a barber shop n display. Here are a few pics from the trip.

The kids even got to do a little cattle ropin'.
Tickets still in the train station:

Munchkin thought it was hilarious to pretend to get poked by the cactus:
This is the back door to the Nazarene church. We went in and the kids sang solos on the stage while we sat in the rock hard pews. Bobby changed the attendance board to read 9 for the day we were there.

Near the end of the trip we found an old playground outside of the school house. The kids had a great time playing on the swings and merry-go-round. As for souvenirs the kids each got a stuffed buffalo to commemorate the fun trip.
We love historic stuff like that and I hope Bobby and I will be able to pass that on to our kiddos.
