A Lion House Birthday

Ryan had his 9th Birthday party the day after Thanksgiving at The Lion House (an historic home where Brigham Young's family lived 151 years ago.) The kids learned about the pioneer history and what it was like to be a child in the 1800's. They played pioneer games, like 'hide the thimble' and 'button button, who's got the button'. They also learned how to make taffy, by pulling their taffy until it was a nice white color. I was worried with such a big group of boys how they would feel about this type of birthday party but I think everyone had a great time... especially Ryan!

Here they all are on the staircase in The Lion House.

Sounds like fun! I remember my mom saying that she used to have her birthdays there.
