Crayola Factory in Easton, PA

We decided that we wanted to make sure that we had one more fun, special day with Gideon before the birth of Maia. We know that he might not get a lot of attention of from us, in the way he is used to at least, in a few more weeks. We left the house at 9:30 a.m. this morning and drove to Easton, PA. It is such a cute, eclectic, and historic looking town right on the Delaware River Gap that is the border river of New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Our purpose in going to this town was to visit the Crayola Factory. We were not disappointed! We had 3 1/2 hours of wonderful fun with our son! boot, the town was having a Garlic Fest right in the square where the factory was located. It was a wonderful time had by all and wish we could live in such a cute little town. We will definitely put it on the list to visit again.

We found a Big Checker Board on the Main Floor and we played this first before going on to the rest of the factory.
