Our great vacation has ended and here is the recap:
Given our late departure on day one, we decided to improvise on the route... I mean, it was late at night and would there really be that much traffic on 95 in NJ and NY at midnight??? Answer: Yes. Construction traffic. Icky, slow, sporadic construction traffic. It possibly added a good hour or two to our trip. YUCK. We left at 4ish in the afternoon and arrived at 3:30ish in the morning. not so fun. So, Daddy headed out with Ga-mommy to find parking after unloading all the stuff and awake boys. All settled in around 4:30, we dozed for a few hours. The next morning, we found a wonderful bright orange surprise attached to our windshield.. street cleaning Wednesday mornings. Ooopsy. We were thankful that it wasn't towed.
Wedding events for the next few days were wonderful and full of family. It was great. The wedding itself was AWESOME. My brother and sister-in-law chose a perfect wedding location and the weather was perfect! The boys were dancing until we dragged them to the car kicking and fighting (because they wanted to dance MORE) at around 10:30. They had a blast.
We ventured up to Maine for a picnic at the "beach". Little Man has been asking to go the beach for months. So we did... the drive up was full of traffic and the weather did not make us want to go for a swim but it was fun to ride the teeter totter and the merry-go-round.
That evening Daddy and I enjoyed watching the Red Sox destroy the A's at Fenway with some friends of the family. Baseball games are fun, even at $7.50/beer.
The rest of the time was spent exploring Boston and trying to catch up on sleep. We did catch a ride on the duck tour to get a quick overview of the city and now we have a few more places to visit the next time we are up there. We left on Tuesday and stuck to the previously laid out route, which ended up being a great idea. We didn't have any traffic all day and avoided a bunch of tolls.
Now, all the laundry is done and we are ready to head back to work and school and rest up for our next adventure.. when ever that may be.
