1. Farms. They both love anything to do with machinery, are interested in animals, and find joy in plants, flowers and things that grow. And so we will try to get to a pick-your-own farm or two, and absorb the country life that was a normal part of their parents’ upbringings. So maybe an afternoon at Frying Pan Farm Park, or picking strawberries or other fruit at Larriland or Clarkland Farm. Added bonus: baking together afterward.
3. President Lincoln’s Cottage. The sporty guy in our household is also a big history buff, particularly the Lincoln variety. As long as the guy of kid’s nightmares, John Wilkes Booth isn’t in attendance, we’ll probably have a lovely hour or two finally checking this place out.
5. Arrr matey. This is a good chance to grab a friend or two and fight some pirates. The Boomerang Pirate Ship in Georgetown will be a true treat for the boys.
