Remember the story of the First Thanksgiving? Did you study the Pilgrims or the Mayflower? Ever wonder what life was like back in the 1600s?
It is not the first time I have been – but I can assure you I was on a school bus with 60 of my closest friends at the time and I am sure I was wearing polyester pants! Lulu and I did this one while Coco was at camp. We enjoyed the company of close friends which made the day even more special.
This was a great day trip. There was a large focus on the Wampanoag tribe so it was nice to see the comparison between the Native Americans and the Settlers.
The actors are in traditional dress and spoke with British accents – going on about their daily lives. When we arrived one woman (in a full on wool long skirt) was doing laundry in a tub. Lulu was able to help spread the linens out to dry on the field.
There were so many textures and things to see and touch. I took a LOT of photos- ENJOY!!!
