Spotlight Review: Heritage Homestead Waco, TX

Hello again!  You may have noticed my sporadic posting here on my blog, lately.  Let’s just say that I have so many opportunities for growth and development lately that I have been trying to prioritize the projects. (wink) Prepping for another homeschool year is exciting, but takes a lot of extra time throughout our days.  We have been traveling as well and I have been working on a TOP SECRET project that I cannot wait to share.  I have thoroughly enjoyed making memories this summer on all our adventures and now it is time to hone in on my laser focus and schedule all the new things that are on our horizon.  So, how many of you are ready for the fall weather to come?  It is my favorite time of year, especially in the hollow.

One of the things that I have been meaning to do is share these photos that have been waiting in the wings since May of this year. Oh my!  We had such a fun time visiting the Heritage Homestead in Waco, TX.  I highly recommend it for the whole family.  It is very family-friendly and they have a lot of free things to see and explore.  We loved seeing old buildings and all the well thought out plans of this unique community.  Scroll through to see what they offer.

Lots of fun shops and buildings to explore.

Love the old feel of the surroundings and the buildings.

It is a lovely place to walk and just take in all the natural elements they added.

These log steps were a sight to see!  Such a creative way to create a natural looking pathway that leads up to the chateau below.

This chateau building reminded me of when my husband and I were deployed to Kosovo and we had a short R & R in Sophia, Bulgaria.  One day, it would be great to take a family trip to Europe to see all the rich history and architecture it offers.

Love all the stone work and how it complements the dark wood stain.

It is complete with a water mill.

Our littles loved walking from building to building on the meandering pebble paths.  So much to see!

Doesn’t this barn look like the barn that Chip and Joanna Gaines (HGTV Fixer Upper hosts) featured on their last fall Magnolia Journal magazine cover (below)?

What do you think? (smile)

Seeing all the farm animals was a fun treat! We also enjoyed walking the garden and greenhouse.

I think it is safe to say that the whole family was happy to visi and it would definitely be fun to visit again and maybe even take one of their classes or watch one of their workshop demonstrations.  Tomorrow is our first day of the new homeschooling year and I will be sharing some of the ways that I like to prepare for this momentous occasion.  (smile)


Until then, enjoy the rest of your day…

Isaiah 26:3-4
