Hot Hot Hot at the Frog Pond!

It was HOT, HOT, HOT in the little Frog Pond "Hollow" [this weekend], we still had a god turn out. Kids got to choose a little colorful frog, then they created "magical lily-pad kingdoms" for it. We had some very innovative creations!

"Cheers" to Old Town Trolley!

Did you know that you can purchase tickets for Old Town Trolley right at the Front Desk of the Hampshire House & Cheers??

It's true! And with a new system we just put in place, you can purchase tickets from our Reception staff and be on the trolley within only moments!

In celebration of this, Old Town Trolley was kind enough to take our Reception staff on a sample trolley ride so we can fine tune our knowledge of the city and this must-do attraction!

Here are some images from our ride...

The Front Desk Staff excited for a Trolley Tour!
With the passes your can purchase at the desk, you can get right on without any delay! It picks guests up right in front of the building and during the busy summer months, arrives every 10 - 25 minutes!
The trolleys offer comfortable, enclosed seating. All the years I've lived here and have never actually seen Old Ironsides!
Jack, our fabulous driver (pointing out the Bunker Hill Monument)! If you take a ride with him, make sure you tell him the Front Desk crew says hello!

Froggy Weekends!

So here are a few from two weeks. I think the children were REALLY creative with the mobiles and they did some fantastic flowers today. ("Miss Izumi" - one of [Tina & Sidewalk Sam's] daughter-in-laws - visiting [them] all the way from Japan had a huge line up of kids today giving lessons in Japanese flower folding), but they also did great pipecleaner flowers, as well as crepe and construction paper ones.

We love the one little boy who did a flower to match his NY baseball cap ... too cute. Beautiful day, too.

What a blast!
