We are home

We had a wonderful trip and saw some wonderful sights. I had hoped to blog along the way but due to a computer glitch the first part of the trip and hardly any internet access the whole 2 weeks kept that from happening. I plan to post pictures and descriptions in the next day or so so stay tuned!

1 week!!

We are on the road again 1 week from today. We are taking a 2 week camping trip to the Northeast and visiting Boston and parts of Vermont. Our reason for planning the trip is to show the girls some of the American Revolutionary sites in the Boston area as we studied them back in the spring. I can't wait to visit Quincy Market and check out all the food and shopping there. We decided since we were already going to be so close, we would head on up to Vermont.

We are basically revisiting Dh and my honeymoon trip. We flew into Boston at midnight of our wedding day and drove out of the rental car area into a traffic jam! A traffic jam at midnight!!! We finally arrived at our hotel right before they cancelled our reservation. The next day, we drove up to Killington, VT where we spent a few days skiing, touring the area and eating lots of Italian food. Yes, I said Italian. The resort we stayed at included breakfast and dinner and all they had on the menu was Italian. I didn't want to see another Italian dish for a month after that. We then drove back to Boston and spent the last part of the week touring the area and walking the Freedom Trail in 1 day. Were we ever tired that evening!! We enjoyed lots of lobster there!

We won't be skiing this time around but we will enjoy the fall weather and activities in the Northeast. I will be busy all this week packing up the camper, shopping for the few colder weather clothes the girls need and most likely, going nuts listening to Puddin say "Are we going camping now?" I will leave you with a picture showing what we hope she does at least part of the time in the car.
