Keeping Kids Creativity Flowing this Summer! #KeepBuilding

We are in the middle of a heat wave in Boston, and even the kids are water logged from the pool and choosing to lounge around in the air conditioning.  However I refuse to let them spend their summer stuck in front of a screen.
I want them to use their imaginations, be creative, and when needed follow directions.  Luckily their favorite activity, building with LEGO bricks, allows them to do all that!

Take a Ride on the Mount Washington Cog Railway!

A trip to the White Mountains is not complete with out seeing the views from the highest peek in the north east at the top of Mount Washington.
There are 3 ways to get to the top of Mount Washington, hike it, drive it, or take The Mount Washington Cog Railway.  I can’t hike up a hill never mind a 6,288 foot mountain, plus I have three kids in tow so that option went out the window quickly.
Many people drive up the mountain, however I get an anxiety attack driving in town, so windy roads on the side of a mountain didn’t sound like a peaceful afternoon.  Plus I had nightmares of my brakes failing and my car overheating when I considered it, so driving was a “no-way”.
The Cog Railway was exactly what we needed.  We pulled up, and parked, got our tickets, then sat back and enjoyed the views throughout the 3 hour guided train tour.
