So, I’m sure “visit a really old cemetery” isn’t the kind of travel advice you see in parenting books, but it’s actually a great activity that can keep both the Bram-Stoker-reading, horror-movie-watching, history-loving parent and the can’t-stand-still kid content.
During our recent trip to Boston–which is an awesome city to visit if you like cemeteries–we stopped by the Granary Burial Ground, located along the Freedom Trail. To keep E. entertained, I gave her a small notebook and a crayon and told her that we were going to a mysterious cemetery. She then decided that she should probably record her observations. (I looked at her notebook later. She drew several birds, a grave marker, and the princess design that graces the bottom of her shoe.)
While E. drew in her notebook, I took some pictures of the cemetery. I love the old grave markers because they are so different than the ones you see today. It’s really interesting how things have changed.
