So the family is going to spend a long weekend this summer in upstate NY in about 1805. We’re going to the Genesee Country Village and Museum. Staying in the Pioneer (log) House. Living like people in 1805. They normally don't let families with little kids go -- but what the heck! They raised kids in this house. We have to send them our measurements for period clothing. During business hours, we're one of the museum exhibits. Should be an interesting weekend!

That sounds like a lot of fun, and very educational. We plan to be tourists to a couple of similar historic places in Canada this summer, but to be one of the exhibits would be really cool.

Oh, how fun that you're all doing this as a family! Come back and let us know about it (with photos!), OK?

We visited Pamplin Park in VA a couple of years ago and I've been wanting to do the Civil War Adventure Camp (http://civilwaradventurecamp.org/Camp_Exp.html)with Greg and Noah ever since! Since we'll be studying the Civil War this coming year, I might just have to find a weekend to go spend in VA!

That sounds like so much fun! We were at GCV last month. There are pictures on my blog (http://dontneednoeducation.blogspot.com/2010/06/genesee-country-village.html). I would LOVE to do the pioneer house, but I don't think my family would think it was as much fun as I would. LOL

I'd love to have owned a general store like that. I think it was watching all those episodes of The Little House on The Prairie when I was young...
