We ended up getting around seven kids and a few adults, but everyone came at different times, so I never did read the stories. Instead, I hung out over at the house for a couple of hours, tended the fire, and talked with the visitors who did come over. I may have also nibbled a few of the gingerbread men in the photo above. :)
I know our weekend manager was disappointed that more kids didn't come, but I left out the crafts and scavenger hunt for later kid visitors to do. The museum was open seven more hours after I left around 1pm, so I'm sure we got some who enjoyed those activities. And as for my part, as I said to my mother via text, "I'm hanging by the fire now. No visitors. But hanging by the fire in a 1710 house. So :)."
