Sturbridge Village

A friend of mine from work had passes to Old Sturbridge Village that she wasn't going to use so she gave them to us! We spent Sunday there! It was the first really nice weekend and we had a great time!

We started out fishing the 19th century way (using a wooden stick, fish line, and rolled-up bread on a hook). We didn't catch any fish but had fun trying!

This guy was really funny and informative at the same time! He had a great way with the kids as he explained how to pack and work a musket!


Pumping water

Milking the cow (or as Tucker calls it "watering" the cow)

Tucker did really well at rolling the hoop with a stick (which is called 'trundling")

This so looks like a trip our family would do. We always loved going to these historical places!

That looks like a really fun place!

I love the picture of Tucker with the hoop and stick. I haven't been there in forever...we were supposed to go when we were up there about 3 or 4 years ago and Madi twisted her ankle the day before and wasn't going to be able to walk.
