The Quabbin Reservoir

Last Sunday my mom and I drove to western Mass to see the Quabbin Reservoir. For those that don't know about it, it started out as a small lake. It was decided to expand it by flooding three entire towns in the valley to make a drinking supply for the city of Boston.

I know by looking at a map the lake is really big but to see it in person was really amazing. Although it's really creepy to think of all the people who used to live on the ground beneath all that water.

We took Maddie with us while Jackson stayed back home and went to lunch with Nana and her two sisters.
Here she is looking out at the lake.

We stopped at a nice little family restaurant before heading on the road home.

On the way back we made one more stop at a farm, saw some animals, and got apple cider donuts!
