At the beginning of the summer, I posted our summer bucket list and we've been crossing things off left and right. I thought I'd share a few pictures of what we've been up to.
We saw a double rainbow:
We visited our oldest daughter in upstate NY on the 4th of July:
We went to New York City twice. The first time, Rob took the older kids and the second time he and I went alone.
|Grand Central Station|
|Behind Rob is the site where the new towers are being built. |
It was a little emotional to be right there.
|On the ferry from Liberty Island to Ellis Island. It was a very hot day.|
|I am so thankful to have seen the Statue of Liberty in person. It is massive.|
|The m & m store|
We visited our State House:
|Emma and Jenna in front of the Pass and Stow bell.|
We visited The Mystic Seaport:
We went to the beach a few times (so far):
We went for a week long vacation in New Hampshire:
|Ellie and Cinderella|
|On the Snow Queen at Storyland|
|swimming and tubing on the Saco|
We went to Boston on the train and walked the Freedom Trail:
|site of the Boston Massacre|
|Paul Revere's house|
|The Old North Church|
|Make Way for Ducklings sculpture in Boston Common|
We took the kids to Watch Hill to ride the carousel and took a walk to the lighthouse:
Many of these places I had never been to before. It was my first time visiting our state house, New York city and on the Freedom Trail. It's been a full summer and we still have a few things up our sleeve before the summer is over! We've also done a bunch of other fun stuff but I don't have all of the pictures to upload and I think this post is long enough anyway.
