Vacation food, books, bumper boats. That’s really all the intro I need, I feel.
When in Maine, visit lighthouses. And walk on bluffs if you can. And play in a field. And lay in the grass. And enjoy where you are.
This is an understatement. We did spend a day in Ogunquit during our trip, which basically involved having lunch at The Wild Blueberry and then walking the mile-long Marginal Way from Ogunquit to Perkins Grove. Then taking the trolley back. Hannah wasn’t up for beach shenanigans really at all on this trip, she was a little under the weather.
This is a NJ attraction that’s been around for a few years, but this is its last summer. So Hannah is just old enough to check it out, and I thought it was great. She was fairly suspicious of the dinosaurs, but this was her field trip choice last week. I gave her a choice between Lego store and dinosaurs, and when you have the chance to pick dinosaurs you pick dinosaurs!
As a Mother’s Day present to my mom, I bought tickets for Hannah, my mom, and I to go see Sleeping Beauty with the New Jersey Ballet. They were doing matinee performances at Mayo Performing Arts Center this past weekend, and it seemed like a great chance for a first ballet for Hannah.
We just got back from a week in Vegas early yesterday morning. We’re all still very jet lagged, but I’m putting my photos together from the trip. I’m splitting them into a couple of posts just to spread them out a little.
A week in Las Vegas with a three-year-old is a very different animal than a week with just adults. The last time we were there was almost exactly 4 years ago, also on spring break, with my mother- and stepfather-in-law. This trip was very different, but so much fun.
