Whirlwind Tour

My beautiful Mom at the Adams Homestead.
Love this quote!
Peony's at "Peace Field" that reminded me of Tina's wedding.
Me & my Mama in front of the oldest (active) battleship in the world..."Old Ironsides".
On Battle Ground Road in Lexington.
Gramma & her babies in front of Orchard House. (The Alcott Homestead)
Homes of Plimoth Plantation.
Abby Sue, Mom, & I worked on these "floating flowers" all day Friday. I love how they turned out! (Thanks to Kari for the idea:)

Gramma has been here with us for a week now and I'm getting way used too having her around! I don't even want to think about what happens tomorrow....(it has to do with my love/hate relationship with airplanes.)

Anyway, I have not given my Mom a moment to rest. I was determined to give her the fullest New England experience possible, so that meant:

Monday: A full day at the beach (pictured in the "Westport" post.)
Tuesday: Touring the homesteads of John & Abigail Adams & The USS Constitution.
Wednesday: Taking the kiddos out of school to fight the redcoats on the Battle grounds of Lexington & Concord, and walking through The Orchard House (Home of Louisa Mae Alcott.)
Thursday: A quick trip out to Plimoth Plantation
Friday: Sightseeing around town & a visit to The Book Shire (my favorite used book store in the world!)
Saturday: Zibby's PJ & Pancake Party!

Are you tired yet???? (I'm exhausted!)

side note: we were obviously blessed with gorgeous weather!


  1. Looks fun! Hooray for Grammas and pancakes!

  2. I love it. I am living vicariously through the photos. I want to be there:) I am glad you had such a good time with your mom and cherished every moment!
