Last night we were able to do something real cool in Portsmouth.

We love our history and are always looking for something fun to experience the history of our country.

Our oldest daughter MacKenna loves history so much, it’s her major in college, so we went to walk around the Strawbery Banke Museum.

They do it up right for sure. All the characters in the houses were amazing. It's like taking a trip back in time.

We walked through about 7 houses, and we saw the Chase House (had the piano player in the parlor), Lowd House and a lot more.

To see MacKenna that excited made my night. She was in history heaven with the horse-drawn carriage ride, the magic show, the performances on ice and in some of the houses. Even the magic show!

I even gave up watching my Dallas Cowboys game (they lost anyway…ha) so that we could all go as a family.

Honestly, this was way more important to me and we had a blast. There’s even ice skating too that you can do!

This is a MUST DO next year. FYI…they do events pretty much all year. We will go check out the July 4th event for sure.

Check out all they have HERE.
