The Betsy-Tacy road trip was a huge hit.* We spent the better part of four hours touring the beautiful (tiny!) houses, walking the neighborhood, and picnicking in the same park where Betsy, Tacy, and Tib picnicked. The girls were great – curious about the oddities in the houses (a sewing machine! old-fashioned telephones!), patient on the tour (even answering some of the guide’s questions), and eager to see everything we could – and to pick up a Betsy-Tacy coloring book for each of them.
A few shots from the day are below; I especially like the picture of the girls at a stove like the one that B, T, and T used to make “Everything Pudding.”
* I must note that I’m especially happy the outing was such a success since it was my idea. I had no idea if any of the other members of the family would think it was a good idea, much less enjoy the trip, so I’m pleased that they all did.
