If you know us, you know that we’re “hop in the car and go someplace” people! We’re always going someplace, and it’s usually some quirky out of the ordinary place. In fact, I’m often posting some “Guess where the Kelley’s are today” pictures on facebook :)
A couple of places we’ve been to recently have been real hits!! We headed out one weekend to Clinton, MA (not that far) to go to the Russian Icon Museum. Honestly, it’s wonderful!! If you have any interest at all in religious artifacts, it’s THE place to go. The collection is huge, the set-up and the displays are beautifully done, there’s a recorded “tour” with added information, and a kids’ scavenger hunt to keep the kiddos entertained while you’re reading about the icons! It was a great visit, and we’ll probably go again we liked it so much! They have a traveling exhibit of Matryoshka dolls (the nesting dolls) coming this month, do we’ll have to plan another trip! Wait, who am I kidding?? We don’t plan :) we just go!
Of course, no trip down route 495 would be complete unless we stopped at the candy store!! Colonial Candies in Bolton :) you can see the building from the highway. It was a little bit awkward while we were there because the 2 girls at the registers were arguing about who was supposed to ring us up… like I said, awkward… But the candy was yummy!
Coming up soon will be a post about our visit to The Orchard House and Miss Kathryn’s report about Louisa May Alcott (plus some pics of the costume I made for her) :)
