I'm going to have to work tomorrow and Wednesday, but we snuck in a little extended weekend winter break day tripping. :
On Sunday I used this Groupon Deal
that I snagged a while back. (Sorry, it's expired now!) Snow-tubing fun ensued. But it was the first weekend in the real season with snow, so the place was jammed. Still, most of the folks were there to ski or snowboard, so the snowtubing hill was not bad at all.
Then, today we made our way down to Trenton. It's really hard to come up with trips on rainy, nasty weather on a Monday (so very few museum options), that appeal at least partially to both a fifth grader, a college student and the rest in between! But this actually worked nicely. The tour of the state capitol building was nice, we peeked in at a very weird quorum call, and we randomly ran into our State Treasurer
. He seems like a very friendly fellow. And I very highly recommend the Old Barracks Museum
It's small, but the staff is really amazing! Knowledgeable and entertaining. We needed to get back home for Mincha, so that was it for today. I'd like to go back sometime that isn't a Monday and check out the State Museum, Trent House and Washington Crossing. It's about an hour and a half from here, so now that the kids are older, we can do that for a day trip.
