While we were there we got to see a live-action farm complete with cows, sheep, chickens, and turkeys. We also got to tour several houses turn of the century houses. In one house the ladies were baking a strawberry shortcake. However, due to the exceptional heat that Michigan has experienced this summer, the strawberries came from the "magical" Meijer, not the garden like usual. I thought it was interesting that the ladies were plugging Meijer (one of the local supermarkets) while dressed in authentic clothing and working in an authentic house. It seemed a bit out of place. Seeing as how it was hotter inside with the ovens going (and no air conditioning), we high tailed it to our next adventure.
Which happened to be beers. Say what you want, but there is nothing better than a nice cold brew on a hot summer day. From there, we meandered over to the Model T's and took a ride around the grounds. The Model T was much more comfortable than I expected it to be, but given many people sit in those seats on a daily basis they are probably well worn.
Greenfield Village was a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to going to the Henry Ford next month to see the Titanic exhibit.
