Hannah started her vacation on a somewhat low note, but it HAS gone up from there. She spent two days 99'ing it (as Kat would say) but then by Wednesday she was her normal self. Which is good, because we had plans to go to Northampton to see a puppet show at the Academy of Music. The show was Sleeping Beauty, complete with fantastic marionettes and music from the ballet. All the kids thought it was great, and Norah insists that her favorite part was the dragon. After that we headed to Thorne's for a snack, and then home. They were thrilled to hang out with their cousins for the afternoon.
Today we headed out to the Amelia Park Children's Museum, courtesy of Kat for lending us her pass. They had a great time there! Norah spent most of her time there playing with trains, but they also had their faces painted, planted seeds to take home (Hannah picked cucumbers, Norah picked Dahlias), and basically got to run around like lunatics. We stopped at Kat's on the way home to drop off the pass, and then headed home for dinner.
Tomorrow we have plans to head down to the Trolley Museum in CT before Mimi comes over to pick up Hannah and take her back to her and Grampy's house for a sleepover. We're heading up there on Saturday, so she's very excited to have them all to herself for the evening. So clearly her fever didn't last long enough to spoil her whole vacation!
