While the hotel pool (or more specifically the whirlpool that lit up and changed colors) might have been the 'most awesome' thing from our getaway according to the kids, I'm certain that they all loved the blacksmith shop too. And the sawmill that we got to see in action. And most definitely the carding machines, and those adorable baby lambs too.
We had a little adventure, the three little ones and I, to Old Sturbridge Village this week. I hadn't been since I was a child, and they've never been. An 1830's New England living history museum, they were able to really explore, touch, play, and talk to re-enactors in period dress. And in the short window of time where school's are wrapping up, but before summer vacationers are in full force, we nearly had the place to ourselves! It made for a lovely, mellow and somewhat quiet day exploring 19th century rural life.
While I certainly was impressed with the blacksmith, I couldn't stop staring at the wallpaper! All those patterns! Just beautiful.
Cheers to summer adventures!
