An Old Fashioned Junket

Our family spent this past Sunday at the Old Stone House attending a junket with sledding and horse drawn sleigh rides.
Here is Michael (Dad of the family) with Abraham on his lap and Sarah to the side on the sleigh. A junket was a time when folks met at someone's farmhouse, put the kitchen table and chairs aside, took out the fiddles and enjoyed music and dancing and of course, drinks and goodies.
When we went inside the beautifully restored Samuel Reed house at the Old Stonehouse Museum, we were treated to fiddle playing, dancing, hot cocoa, tea and coffee, cider and delicious home baked goods.
Our children also enjoyed sledding across the way.
