Rather than the traditional birthday party, we take a family trip on our boys' birthdays. When we moved to the Berkshires almost three years ago, we headed to "The Carle" in Amherst for loads of fun on family day. It was a gorgeous day so we mainly enjoyed the grounds outside where there were loads of children's activities and bopped along with Dan Zanes. This is a museum both parents and children can enjoy thoroughly - with a children's library, research library, performance space, studio space, incredible galleries, a cafe and museum store. We head up as often as possible. If the weather is nice, you can enjoy the beautiful scenery offered along the rural route of Hwy. 9.
