Way back When-sday!

So I was looking through some old photos to find something fun to post today, and I came across the photos from our vacation last year. My dad grew up in Massachusetts and we went there for summer vacation every year for as long as I can remember. When we were really small they would drive overnight and put suitcases behind the front seats, lay an egg shell pad across and my sister and I would sleep the whole way. It was a 24-hour drive, and now that I have a baby I can see why they chose the overnight route! Funny how there was no worry about car seats back then! So anyhoo, last year we all went to Massachusetts for my cousin's wedding. My aunts (my dad has 4 sisters and 1 brother) threw me a great shower since I was about 7 months pregnant at the time. My parents also took us to Maine to a small cottage where they had vacationed the 2 years prior. My parents are in Massachusetts right now for the very same vacation! I spoke to my mom today and they were driving back to Mass from Maine. They and my nephew stayed in the same cottage and went to the same beaches we did lats year. It was an amazing trip! Hopefully we will be able to take BBZ there one day soon. We took a road trip to Vermont. It was beautiful. I would love to live there one day...

I love weddings! They are expecting a baby boy one day very soon!
This is the top of a mountain we always called Snuffy Mountain because it looks like Mr. Snuffleupagus from Sesame Street. I love my mom's shirt in this says "I live in Fargo...really."

We went to Old Sturbridge Village where everyone lives in the 1800s
N also found some sparklers so we drove up to Snuffy Mountain and wrote our names.
I got so close to getting the Westminster Crackers sign in Westminster, Mass.
