Summer Fun {Finding Neverland}

About a ten minute drive from our house along Lake St. Clair is the former Edsel Ford Mansion.  The home and grounds are now open for tours, weddings, and other events.  This summer they were hosting character weekends with a Neverland theme.
I didn't know anyone that had been to the event, so I wasn't sure how age appropriate it was.  But it was right on the money!  You were given a map to help you find clues and hidden letters that would eventually make a word and you could turn in to receive a prize.  Lauren and William can't read, but with us reading the clues, they could find them!  Along the way we met Wendy and Tinkerbell...pixie dust away!!

One of the little cottages on the grounds were transformed into the Darling's home.  It also included a pirate/peter pan room and mermaid room where the kids could dress up.

 We also got to step inside Tinkerbell's house!

Behind her house were missing shadows, games, and a craft!

 While looking for the clues, Lauren became very interested in finding the mermaids...wouldn't you know, there was an actual mermaid lagoon!

 Look closely, I think there is one hiding way back there;)

Enjoy your Sunday!
