Well, it seems like summer has arrived. An exciting day spent at Montshire Museum recently by two grandmothers and four little ones – 5 and under. Exhausting, but fun. When I told Owen that I can’t wait until he is old enough to drive so I can nap on the way home, he said, “Mimi, you will have a long time to wait.”
Speaking of children, don’t forget that Tyson Library (open Tuesday – Saturday 10 AM to noon, and the 1st and 3rd Mondays from 6 -7 PM) has free or reduced fee passes for several places. Check to see if there is one available on a day that you want to go!
- Wonderfeet, the children’s play place in Rutland – free for 2 adults, 3 children.

- The Echo Museum in Burlington offers $4 each admission for 4 guests.
