Here is a picture of a typical Mennonite house:
Notice the barn is attached to the house. On the left side is a "summer kitchen". Mommy remembers Grandma talking a lot about the summer kitchen at her house.
Mennonites speak low German which is different then German (called high German). Mommy says she used to visit Grandmas and everyone spoke low German. They were originally from Holland, moved to Russia and then to Manitoba, Canada.
Here are some of the farm animals at the museum:
Mommy really enjoyed the museum especially being able to compare it to our family tree that she researched. I wish I could have seen those animals. It looks like lots of good smells to me!
