We’ve done some adventuring. As promised, photographic documentation:
Ain’t no reason *not* to visit the Pez factory when you’re driving right by it.
It’s in Orange, CT, in case you’re wondering. And it has, much to our mutual delight, a souvenir penny machine.
We went here when The Who was about 3 (and had pretty much no frame of reference for Pez) and the one and only thing he remembered about it was this floor display of candy.
The factory isn’t operational on the weekends, but they do show a video of how everything goes down.
Design your own Pez dispenser.
From here, it was just a short hour and a half or so to Springfield and our next road-trip pit-stop: the Dr. Seuss memorial sculpture garden. The sculptures are in the quadrangle amongst a handful of museums (a couple of art and a science) and although we only went in to see the dinosaurs, we ended up staying to see the live animals and do a craft project. We spent most of the afternoon there and finally got on the road to my parents’ around 4pm.
Learning how the animatronic frame works.
Little foot inside footprint
“You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch.” The Who told him a thing or two.
What kind of mentor wisdom is good ole Theodor passing down to The Who?
I think Horton Hears My Who
I do not like them, Sam I Am.
Some version of this will be my next tattoo. Whoville: just a speck on a clover. “A person’s a person, no matter how small.”
Today, we adventured to Legoland Discovery Center Boston. Photos soon to come of that excellent place!
