Today, my sister, N, planned for us to head out to Heritage Museum's Hidden Hollow in Sandwich, MA. It was super cool, and I feel like I could have easily spent all day there, if we didn't have to get kids back for naps. We didn't get to see the antique car museum or the special Porter Rockwell exhibit they had going on. The grounds were also very extensive and beautiful and I feel like we only really saw a small portion, but such is life when you have young'uns in tow. We'll just have to go back again :)
|Packing the picnic- the sandwich line up|
The hut building station was especially cool. They had 3 large sticks that were sort of permanently tied into a teepee, and then a pile of others for you to add onto it any way you wanted, with a bunch of fabric strips to use to cover it.

And here's peach building towers with them.
They had several really cool xylophone-like instruments made of wood, in several sizes.

|The Frog usually wants to sit in these on carousels, which I think is so funny. For me, I always wanted to ride an animal that wasn't a horse.|
This place was sooo big and thankfully, they had a "shuttle" that would take you back to the entrance when you were ready to leave. We miraculously all fit and I made everyone sit tight for a picture.
|This is how he looked right when we sat down. By the end... **shaking head**|
|Jay always goes for a vanilla malt|
|Cousin L is always generous with grins|
|Peach let me "help" her with her potential drips, so she actually stayed pretty clean...|
