We had a mini family getaway to Story Land last weekend! Story Land is a very mellow (especially if you go at the very beginning of the season), Mother Goose tale themed amusement park in Glen, New Hampshire – perfect for young children! It was also a very frugal vacation – we were able to use the member passes that we invested in last summer (buy at the end of the season and it is good for the next season as well), and our hotel was free thanks to all the hotel points Mike accumulated while traveling for work for over half of last year.
We pulled the kids out of school on Friday so we could make it up there for the afternoon. I’m so glad we did – the weather was perfect Friday, and rain POURED all day Saturday!
Lily loves the very mellow rides – the train, safari ride, and hot air balloon Ferris wheel. Her absolute favorite? Cinderella’s pumpkin carriage – a fun one for all three kids, as you can see:
The carriage drives up to Cinderella’s castle, where you can meet Cinderella – which my kids loved! What did they love even more? Sitting on Cinderella’s throne when we went up there and she was out!
The one bonus of braving the pouring rain Saturday? New Hampshire’s PBS station was visiting, and so the kids go to meet The Cat in The Hat, and Curious George!
