One of our favorite places is Storyland in New Hampshire. We discovered it the year after we moved to the US and we’ve been back every summer since.
I’ve written several posts about our times at Storyland!
So, before it starts snowing here, I want to share just some of our Storyland memories from this year (although, as we go so often, I don’t take nearly as many photos now!).
We did a few day trips this year, which we hadn’t tried before, but despite the three hour drive, it’s surprisingly manageable and a good way to get a few more days in the park. One of our day trips was while my eldest was at camp, which was lovely for our younger two. I can’t think of a time when they’ve had one-on-one time with us like that before. And, we spent Labor Day weekend staying nearby, enjoying a couple of visits to the park as part of a wonderful weekend with friends.
The kids really do love it there, and while I will admit that a few hours at a time is now plenty for me, watching the kids makes it all worthwhile. My eldest is already aging out of it a bit, so I suspect our trips as a family will become less frequent, while day trips with the younger two will happen instead.
But, just look at these happy faces!
I began these ‘Snapshots’ posts over the summer, when my days were too busy having fun with my kids to spend time writing about the fun we were having. They are a way for me to record the moments, but not feel obliged to write War and Peace. Capture the days as they happen. No SEO, no pinnable images, no stress. So, I’m going to continue to write them, and keep those moments from running away.
