How do you tire out a two year old? Stimulus Overload!
We accomplished stimulus overload with our grandson today. I promised Elizabethe we would go garage sale shopping today. Our grandson wasn’t too excited about that. However, it was all worth it when we boarded the Sam Patch for a cruise.
He was enthralled with the boat ride. (As you can see from the photo.)
The Sam Patch
If you have never done so, the Sam Patch cruise is a fascinating ride out of Pittsford. It goes through Lock 32 (twice) and then back the other way to the canal guard gates, and then back to Pittsford.
You learn about the canal as you cruise it. It’s fun to hear the stories they tell. It’s also educational to learn how the locks operate.
Everyone had a great time. Your money is well spent on the Sam Patch tour. It is a memory these children will have for a long time.
Returning home I thought, “Oh, no! What if Main Street is closed?”
It wasn’t. We got home just in time for the big parade.
The parade was sensory overload for our grandson as he watched fire truck after fire truck. Excitement filled the other children too.
One of the funniest things during the parade was watching my granddaughter’s attempt to get the fire trucks to honk. As one passed, the driver honked. The honk was wimpy. She yelled, “Honk louder!”
With an approaching band, my eldest granddaughter starts doing cartwheels in the street. She doesn’t shy away from attention, instead she loves every minute of it.
The day tired everyone out. We will sleep well tonight.
