Patriots Place

The kids had school vacation this week so we headed south to Patriots Place on Tuesday.  Snow was in the forcast and MA had school vacation the week before so it wasn't very crowded.

First we stopped at Bass Pro.  The kids split up and had a good time looking at the fish and turtles.  My migration ended in the hunting section.

They were replacing the field turf at Gillette Stadium.  There isn't much time because the New England Revolution (soccer) play their first home game here in April.  We watched for a few minutes then went inside Patriots Hall. 

There are lots of exibits and displays of New England Patriots history, Patriots Hall of Fame players, winning footballs, trophys, rings, etc.  Hannah, Grogan, Coates, Tippett, Nelson, Haynes, Cappolletti, etc ... I know I missed some ...  

There was a field goal kicking machine.  Katelyn and Kevin tried to kick a field goal.  Kevin made his attempt.  For his success he got to wear a Patriots Super Bowl Ring. 
They had lifesize players in a huddle. Most were pretty tall.  There is  a locker room area with player equipment you can try on.  Tom Brady's equipment is probably the most popular.  We watched a great movie of Patriots history which included franchise game winning plays, victories, championships, etc. 

After the Hall, more shopping at Patriots Place.  We made it home that afternoon just before the snow.
