Well when we finally made it to the Pittsford NY area to retrieve our kids, we found a great thing to do outdoors… check out some Civil War history. As always the kids had some interesting questions that only kids can come up with like; ‘where do the soldiers go to the bathroom?’ and ‘why don’t the kids have electronics?’ (ipads, to be specific). It was a hot day so I’m still surprised everyone was willing to wear all that clothing and hoop skirts. And I learned what a reticule is (Zoe is pointing to them in the photo below) … who knew?

and of course that means a trip to Strong Museum! Remember this amazing place? When the weather gets fussy, it’s a great place for the kids to spend HOURS playing (photos courtesy of Karen Kessler!). Hey isn’t that a scene from Sesame Street where Zoe is standing? I thought that was here in Queens!:

After visiting friends in Rye NY, we made a trip to Muscoot Farms. This sweet little farm doesn’t encourage feeding the animals but sometimes you can pat one.. and there was a great little farmer’s market going on that Sunday. We loved the fresh strawberries.
Have a great 4th of July weekend everyone!
More often than not, don’t you feel like you get to relive your own childhood when you spend summers with kids? So far it’s been firefly catching and visits to a boat house – and Muscoot Farm (I hope to post those photos next). What else will summer bring? It’s already going too fast – 4th of July is nearly here and I don’t even know what happened to May and June. Can you find the firefly hunters in the dark in the photo below?
As I remember E sort of learned how to walk by holding the edge of the ferry’s indoor seating benches, and walking back and forth from Manhattan to Staten Island. That was back in 2007 – now here he is about to graduate from his first school and move on to the next. All these littles are growing too fast! (thanks to mamma Kerry for the photos!)

How did I forget to post these pretty pictures? Nothing is more Americana than the Memorial Day ceremonies in West Cornwall CT – with their quaint parade of old fashioned cars, firetrucks and carnival afterwards. We did the Cakewalk again around the Maypole and Brad even won a cake covered in gummy worms!
