Spring Vacation Week

It is spring vacation week and we have been doing some day trips to various attractions in CT.
On Monday we went to the Mystic Aquarium.

And finished the day with a trip to downtown Mystic where we ate at Mystic Pizza and topped it off with ice cream at Mystic Drawbridge Ice Cream.

Then, today {since our oldest daughter loves all things Native American} we thought we would go to the Pequot Museum.  We had such a GREAT time!!!  It is a beautiful museum that is engaging, educational and interactive!  I was really amazed with the attention and interest that all 3 kids had in the exhibits.  We all learned so much about the Pequot people and the history of Native Americans in Connecticut.
I wish I could have taken more pictures but the museum did not allow cameras in most of the exhibits.  After spending over 5 hours in the museum {yes!  We stayed in a museum....with 4 kids.....for over 5 hours!!!}  we went up the observation tower where we finally were able to pull out the camera.

Here are the kids at the top of the tower with Foxwoods Resort/Casino in the background.

And here is our sweet little guy who was dragged along to all the different places and just kept right on smiling.  We love our little Nathan!
