Deanna Rose

The Summer of the Blog Post is coming to a close. It certainly has been interesting. I’ve visited more places and learned more things than I ever thought possible.

One July morning I dragged Betsy and Matt to the Deanna Rose Children’s Farmstead in Overland Park, to take a photo for the sculpture contest. I hadn’t been to Deanna Rose in many years, and Wow! Has it ever changed. When my kids were little, the place was a lovely little petting zoo and garden playground. Now it’s a 1900’s turn-of-the-century farm, complete with fishing pond and one-room school house. I could have spent all day. The kids were surprised to find that they could have, too.

Here’s a little taste of what we found:
