I am a bit late…well, maybe a month late with this post! Fall is always a very busy time at our house. Its our favorite time of year! Fall also means Maddie’s birthday followed closely by our anniversary. This year I suggested to Maddie that we do some special things with just one friend. Maddie was willing, her friend was able so that’s exactly what we did! We started off by heading to the Saratoga Battlefield to visit Maddie’s favorite Park Rangers and visit the encampment. We stopped at the visitor center for a while then headed off down the tour road to the American Camp. The girls were able to participate in a lesson in drilling with the drum! We also had a special scavenger hunt to complete so we were busy looking for clues.
The next day we spent having cake and ice cream with all Maddie’s grandparents! On Monday, the actual birthday day, we went to the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake. Unlike Maddie’s real birth day it was wet, cold and rainy! We didn’t let it stop us and had a good time checking out the different buildings and displays. We were very happy however to discover they had soup in the cafeteria to go along with our sandwiches from home!
Camping by the rich long ago…today we would call it “Glamping”
Flower press in the “Glamping” exhibit. Some of the things they used to take along on these “camping” trips astounded us! There was a pictures of Henry Ford with 2 other famous men. They went camping with something like 40 cars along to carry all the equipment! Phew!
We had a great weekend and lots of fun!! I’ll be posting Maddie’s photos in a separate post.
