Inside the house they had tea, coffee and hot chocolate. Plus lots of photographs, displays of historical artifacts (the Spy loved the arrow heads) and we got a bunch of nice pamphlets (on butterflies, hummingbirds, native Missouri landscaping and a tree ID guide) perfect for reading indoors on a much colder winter day (it was 55 today!)
