Magic, Music and Colonial Farm Life

LC and I had a blast at the Old Stone House (a 1699 Dutch farmhouse), getting a taste of colonial life. Not only did we check out the revamped J.J. Byrne Playground, but we attended a fun Mad Hatter's Tea Party. A yummy brunch and super fun entertainment. Liam the Magician made LC laugh a ton during his act (LC is such a fan of all things magic!) and Princess Katie & Racer Steve inspired this butterfly to dance up a storm. Here are some photos:

Submarine periscope, octopus legs...and funhouse mirror delight tots:

Chicken and egg...a creative farm version of tic-tac-toe:

A slide that encourages kids to climb up:

LC loves maps. We're digging the colors and the colonial and farm theme of this playground.

Touch the trees, touch the sky...makes for a very content butterfly.

So much more including a mill stream (runnel) and old fashioned pump...spray cannons...they get an A+ for integrating revolutionary life and farm history with modern play equipment. NYC is our classroom!
