Page Kender Visit to Chocorua
I raced back from Maine to meet Sam and Jess and the kiddos who were coming up from visiting friends in Rhode Island.
Their's was a short 5-day stay but packed with fun things:
Canoeing, of course, and picking water lilies.
Jess' parents came to visit too and
we all went to dinner at Dale's charming barn eatery then to see "The Ghost Train" at the Barnstormers.
Front row seats and so scary that Maddie hid under her hood much of the time. But fun!
Afterwards Sam and the kids went backstage to see how the sound effects were made--effects he'd worked on when he was a teenager working at the Barnstormers.
Maddie got an autograph (her first) from our friend Jean Coulter Brown who was one of the actors.
A very slippery slip and slide.
Max on the piano
(I still don't know how to make a movie work on my blog).
Jess and Maddie setting off for a walk to Heron Pond but turning back almost immediately because of millions of ravenous mosquitoes.
(I tried the walk two weeks later and the same thing happened...never seen them so bad!).
Monkey Trunks: Getting geared up,
traversing on a wobbly rope,
getting higher and higher and crossing on very teetery planks,
then the fun part--the zip line.
Picnic on top of Black Cap.
A cozy evening watching "The Wizard of Oz."
