ok. i am about to post six different posts about the last week of our adventure. we have been very busy doing lots of fun and exciting (and maybe even educational) things. but, first. let me post about the in between moments. in other words, i’ll be getting the boring post out of the way.
finally, and thankfully, we were able to leave sturbridge a week early and head to “gateway to cape cod”… after we got settled in rested up, we went to a local italian restaurant, where i ventured out and got the fish fry. ho hum. it was soooo much breading. i think it might have been about 1/4” thick all around. another fish fry fail. i will only be getting them in western new york from now on.
ive mentioned it before, but her other newest obsession is thomas the train. she has been acquiring these little mini trains like crazy lately. they are only $1.50 in the mystery bags and less that $1 each if you get a pack of them. so, she has a bunch.
on night, i challenged ike to write in as many states as he could on our new usa map. with only a bit of a hint for montana, that kid knocked them all out. i was pretty impressed and not sure i could do it.
this campground has a lot of activities available for the kids. one day, we wandered over for the 2:00 craft, which was a nature collage. so first, the kids had to go out to collect nature items. while we were out, we saw this chrysalis. so exciting.
one of my least favorite parts about camping is this. EVERY time we change sites, we are met with a fire pit full of someone else’s garbage. i don’t get it. (last time i had to scoop out wet, swollen dog food).
anna takes a little notebook everywhere we go. last week, when we went to providence, she made this little list of items to check off. she’s smart, though. she makes the list after and then we are super good at checking it all off.
anyhow. that’s the boring stuff. stay tuned for a flurry of posts about all of our fun adventures….
