Edaville Railroad

We did from our annual Edaville Railroad visit a few nights ago. It seems they've added more lights to the train ride which is nice to see! We went on a Tuesday, got there at 4 and had the place to ourselves for at least and hour! We went on the 5pm train ride with plenty of room. The park was a bit more crowded by the time we departed the train but still no where near the crowds they see on the weekends!

It is pretty expensive...we were lucky and had a coupon from the Mass Pass book as well as free passes from our rec department. Admission is $18 per person and 2 and under is free. But dinner cost us $62 for the five of us and then another $24 for fried dough later!

Edaville is open weekdays from 4-9pm and weekends from 2-9. There are coupons available on their website. Coupons available if you are a fan on facebook and there's two for one admission coupons in the Entertainment book and the Mass Pass book.

We go every year and never miss it!

Sleigh Ride at Cabbyshack!

This is an event I wish I could get to check out!

Cabbyshack in Plymouth is having a sleigh ride with Santa on Friday, December 18th from 6-9. Your family can ride along with Santa in a clydesdale-driven sleigh! There will be sweet treats and hot cocoa along with Christmas carols! There is a nominal fee for the sleigh ride but I think that it's free if you have a Cabbyshack receipt for dinner that night.

If you go, let me know how it is! =)

Great Leaf Peeping Drive!

While searching for things to do on our camping trip to Tamworth, New Hampshire, I came across this road trip article for Mt. Chocorua. What a great trip it was! We headed out on a Friday morning, so we didn't run into much traffic. The trip is so "back woods", I don't think you'd run into much traffic anyways!We left midmorning, so we didn't stop at the first ice cream place...just headed straight for the Mt. Chocorua view. I printed some letterboxes beforehand and was excited to find a letterbox at the same place (Mt. Chocorua View). Got some great foliage pictures as well as family & kid pictures here too!After that, we went and got some pics of the mountain over the pond. So pretty!

Now it's totally back woods time....unpaved roads, barely any houses and lots of foliage! When we saw signs for Liberty Trail, I remembered another letterbox (Liberty Trail) was there so we headed off to find that.
We continued on the drive until we came to Great Hill Road and then stopped to do another letterbox (Great Hill Tower). This hike is a must do! I'd say it's probably about a half mile into the woods. Once you reach the tower, you can climb up and look at all the mountains and foliage around you. Totally worth it!
Once you start the drive again and get on Cleveland Hill Road, stop to check out Ordinance Rock on the right. There's yet another letterbox (Ordinance Rock Cemetery) right across the street. The kids loved looking at all the very old gravestones in the cemetery.Hollow Hill Farm is right beside the cemetery and we did some apple picking there on another day (because it was raining on our first trip by). The owners are very nice people!
We saw the coolest rainbow on the way to the next stop...just beautiful!One of the best stops on the trip was at the Sandwich Creamery. It's way in the middle of nowhere. They sell homemade ice cream and cheese there. It's all done on the honor system by sticking your money through a little slot to pay for what you're buying. And the the ice cream is delicious! The kids liked seeing all the animals there too.After our ice cream, we just headed back to our campground although the trip continues a little longer. We highly recommend doing this road trip if you're going to be in the area....and I'd try to go during the fall to see all the amazing colors!

The Sandwich Fair

Last year was the first year we ventured north to New Hampshire and went to the Sandwich Fair....and we're returning because we loved it so much! If you're a fan of the Marshfield Fair, you'd like the Sandwich Fair.

The Sandwich Fair has midway rides which are are favorite of the kids. They also have 4h animal exhibits as well as live shows & performances. I like that they open at you can get there early and enjoy the ride specials from 8-2 (only $15!) You can see a full schedule of events on their website.

It's up on Route 109 in Center Sandwich and is always held on Columbus Day Weekend. I'd say it's a good 3 hours from us here on the South Shore so I'd plan on a long day trip or staying up in the area (we camp up near there).

Food & Fun at the airport

One of my favorite places to take the kids for breakfast or lunch is Plane Jane's at the Plymouth Airport on South Meadow Road. We like to grab a seat out on the patio where we can sit and watch the planes take off and land. The kids get a big kick out of it!

When we're done eating, we usually grab a seat on the bench or swing which is on the grass right at the fence. The kids like to hear the pilots over the radio and wait for them to land.

Weekends are a good time to go because there's more flight activity but it's harder to get the "prime" seats on the patio!

The food at Plane Jane's is yummy....we LOVE their pizza. And my son thinks they have the best chicken fingers around. Definitely go check it out....the kids will love it!

PS. If you're a letterboxer...there's a box there! =)

Hot Air Balloon Festival

This June, we went camping in Vermont for the Queechee Hot Air Balloon Festival and had a great time! The kids loved seeing all the hot balloons up close and in flight. (And I thought it was a pretty awesome sight as well). The festival had some games and activities for the kids and lots of vendors selling their mostly homemade items.

They have different things going on during the festival too. Friday night they had a cool balloon glow. They had skydivers jumping out of planes and landing in the field. Lots of entertainment and music.

Admission was paid once and honored all weekend. And it was not expensive at $10 per adult, $5 per child 6-12 and under 5 free!

We camped at a local KOA but there were lots of hotels in the area too. Highly recommended!

The festival is held Father's Day weekend every year and we plan on going back again per the kids orders! =)

If you know of other balloon festivals in New England...please let me know!

Huge Blueberries!

Today we ventured to The Blueberry Farm on West Washington Street (Rt. 14) in Hanson to do some blueberry picking. I was nervous when we got there at 9:30 and the sign said "wet conditions...opening at noon" but the owner Pat let us pick anyways.

Love this place!

Tons of big fat blueberries and they were very sweet & yummy! There's tables and chairs in a field between the bushes for sitting, having coffee or even for lunch and there's a porta potty there if you need it. ;) The owner is so nice too! Blueberries are $2.25 per pint. They have a nice handout with proper storage tips and even some yummy recipes I can't wait to try.

I'll definitely go back next year...and will even bring a picnic lunch!

Birthday Party Ideas: Jungle Plex

Sarah sent in her experience with a birthday party at Jungle Plex in Plymouth recently and allowed me to share with you:

I had my son Braden's 10th birthday party at the JunglePlex in Plymouth. He had a blast! It was a sports themed party, and Braden and 9 of his friends had so much fun playing soccer and dodgeball! The best part was that the JunglePlex took care of everything--they even provided invitations and thank you cards. I recommend the JunglePlex to all of my friends now. In addition to hosting birthday parties, they are a sports facility, have an arcade, play place area, cafe, and offer music and sports classes for children of all ages. The staff is super friendly, and the facility is clean and well-maintained. Check out their website!

Thanks for your email Sarah!

If you have any other places you recommend for birthday parties, please drop me an email and let me know!

Provincetown Summer Events

Summer 2009 in Provincetown

Outer most Cape Cod town hosts array of seasonal events and activities

Provincetown, MA; May 29, 2009—Located on the outermost tip of Cape Cod and surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean on all three sides, Provincetown, Massachusetts ( is an incredible tourist destination with a fascinating cultural history and extraordinary entertainment offerings. This season, Provincetown plays host to a myriad of events and activities that celebrate its boundless natural beauty and eclectic arts and culture scene. A brief look at Summer 2009 is below.

Provincetown Celebrates:

  • Marriage Equality (for summer nuptials and all year long)

Since the legalization of gay marriage in Massachusetts in 2004, Provincetown has earned the distinction of “the place to get married,” issuing more than 2,000 marriage licenses to date. Today, Provincetown may be the easiest place to get married as the Town Clerk recently announced the ability to file applications for marriage licenses on Fridays (previously Town Hall was closed on Fridays, which sometimes added a day to the required three day waiting period). Given Provincetown’s beautiful seaside setting, colorful environment and consistent rating as the premier gay destination in America, it makes for an ideal wedding spot.

  • 11th Annual Provincetown International Film Festival (June 17-21)

As the stomping ground for performers as diverse as Billie Holiday and Barbra Streisand, Provincetown is no stranger to legendary work. As such, it has become the host of one of the entertainment world’s most popular film festivals. This summer’s opening night features a screening of Woody Allen’s “WHATEVER WORKS,” starring Larry Charles, Evan Rachel Wood, Patricia Clarkson and Ed Begley, Jr. (

  • Portuguese Festival (June 25-28)

Established in the early 19th century and strengthened over the years, Provincetown’s vibrant Portuguese community continues to influence the area’s culture and community. Celebrate Provincetown’s Portuguese heritage with four days of food, games, music, dance and art. (

  • Fourth of July Weekend (July 3-5)

As the site of the Pilgrims’ first landing in the New World, Provincetown is a hotbed of Fourth of July activities and celebrations. Set off over Provincetown Harbor, the annual fireworks display (July 4) is the culmination of a day’s worth of parades, bands, live music and performances. The fireworks celebration is funded by private and public donations. Volunteers are still working to raise the remaining funds. Donations can be made directly to Provincetown Fireworks Gift Fund, 260 Commercial Street, Provincetown, MA 02657.

  • Family Week (August 1-8)

As an organization that promotes community building for same-sex parents raising children, the Family Equality Council sponsors a week of family-oriented picnics, clambakes, activities, unity and pride parades, and more. Events are open to all families. (

  • Carnival ( August 16-22)

Rivaling the diversity and energy of Rio, Provincetown celebrates Carnival every August. This year’s theme is the “Summer of Love: Peace, Love and Go-Go Boots,” a nod to the 30th anniversary of Woodstock. Events include DJs spinning dance music, karaoke, drag king and queen competitions, the infamous Gay Pride Parade with floats down Commercial Street, art exhibits and more. (

  • Lily Tomlin Fundraiser for Pilgrim Bark Park (August 29th)

To celebrate Provincetown’s pet-friendly nature and raise funds for Pilgrim Bark Park, a new dog park, award-winning actress, comedienne, and longtime Provincetown visitor Lily Tomlin will perform on MacMillan Wharf. (

Arts & Theater Happenings in Renown Artist’s Colony:

  • Provincetown Theater

Long considered the birthplace of modern American Theater, Provincetown is home to the Provincetown Theater, where writers like Tennessee Williams, Norman Mailer and Truman Capote, and performers like Billie Holiday, Marlon Brando and Al Pacino displayed their earliest work. Continuing the long-standing tradition, Provincetown Theater offers plays, events, festivals, workshops and classes open to the public throughout the summer months. (

  • Provincetown Art Association and Museum (PAAM)

Founded in 1914 by painter Charles Webster Hawthorne and other residents to collect, exhibit and honor the work of Provincetown’s artists, the Provincetown Art Association and Museum (PAAM) is now home to one of today’s most important collections of 20th century art. During the summer months, PAAM presents their annual Spring Consignment Auction of rare and vintage work; the Secret Garden Tour of Provincetown’s hidden horticultural gems; as well as lectures and classes from well-known artists. (

  • Free Gallery Strolls

As America’s oldest artist’s colony, thanks its beautiful light, natural landscapes and rustic scenes, Provincetown is home to many of the country’s most prolific—and promising—artists and writers. From the incredible dune shacks where famous writers like Eugene O’Neill and Tennessee Williams sought inspiration to the downtown Gallery District on world-famous Commercial Street, Provincetown is rich in artistic tradition. Take a stroll down Commercial Street every Friday night this summer for art gallery open houses, where art enthusiasts are encouraged to browse the galleries and meet the owners and artists. (

Provincetown’s Great Outdoors:

  • Cape Cod National Seashore Park

Surrounded by federally-protected beaches on three sides, Provincetown is home to 18 miles of sand, offering relaxing and scenic landscapes, gentle surf and the occasional whale sighting. Don’t miss out on Provincetown’s famous sunsets—one of the few places on the East Coast to see the sun setting over the Atlantic Ocean. (

  • Art’s Dune Tours

As Provincetown’s only tour company providing four wheel drive access to the dunes, Art’s allows you to explore the dune shacks where writers like Eugene O’Neill and Tennessee Williams, isolated from the rest of the world, created their most influential work. You can race through the sand and beach grass in a modern off-roading SUV, where the option of pulling over for a traditional sunset clambake is always available. (

  • Dolphin Fleet-Whale Watching

As the closest port to the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary—a federally-protected habitat home to whales, dolphins, sea turtles, deep sea fish and sea birds—Provincetown is no stranger to incredible marine life sightings. And this year is poised to be one of this most amazing yet. Dolphin Fleet offers daily tours and has its own public education and research programs. (

  • Bird Watching

With two-thirds of the town’s resources protected and managed by the Cape Cod National Seashore Park, Provincetown is rife with more than 250 species of birds and waterfowl. Beech Forest Trail is the perfect spot for avid birdwatchers, as it is a major rest stop for semi-annual shore and seabird migrations along the East Coast. Additionally, there are 40 square miles of protected woodlands, ponds, wetlands and salt marshes to whet your bird watching appetite. (
