I took a break from posting for a few days to finish a deadline. But last Saturday was our last day in Mystic, and we spent the morning at Olde Mistick Village for their Easter egg hunt. Which was such a great last thing to do before we left, if you’re ever in town for any of their family events I really recommend it. We packed up the car and brought Hamilton to their apple orchard with us, which he loved. He was a big hit with many of the little kids out there for the egg hunt, and he was just so excited for sunshine and adventure.
We really only spent two full days in Mystic, but on Good Friday we had a lazy morning at the hotel and then headed out with Hamilton in tow to grab lunch. We went to Sea View Snack Bar, right down the road from Mystic Seaport, and sat outside with him eating lobster rolls, french fries, and hot dogs. He had his very own hot dog, he was in his doggy glory.

Yesterday was our first of two full days in the Mystic area. I’ve been to Mystic as a kid, once or twice with Adam over the years, and once we spent an afternoon at the Seaport (with Hannah) on our way to Maine with my in-laws. But every time I come I feel like it’s new, and my sense of geography is weird until we get somewhere, and I think, “Ah, I remember this.”

This is my last post on our week at Disney, but I wanted to put the photos from the Halloween party separately. Because that’s where we got to sport our PJ Masks costumes, and it was also my favorite thing from the entire trip. I just loved being in Magic Kingdom when it was spooky (but not too spooky), and how cool is it to get to trick or treat around Disney World? It was pretty darn amazing, I thought. And so did Hannah, we didn’t get home from the party until just before midnight, she just kept going.

Here’s another batch of photos from our trip last week. I only have one more post to put up with photos, and that’s for the Halloween party with our PJ Masks costumes! I didn’t take as many pictures on this trip because it was such a busy time, but we do have some great ones. Some of our Disney photographer shots are here, too.
I was at Universal a few years ago, when the Harry Potter section was new, but I’d just found out that I was pregnant and couldn’t ride anything. My brother-in-law Thomas and I took a break from Disney and went over to Universal last week. I Harry Potter’d! I did so much Harry Pottering!
On our last full day in the UK, we headed to Chatsworth. I’ve been before, but it was on my very first trip to England back in 2004. It was a lot different than I remembered.
The last leg of our UK trip last month was up to stay with my in-laws in Derbyshire and spend some time running around the country and running around Sheffield (which is South Yorkshire).
I have deadlines, and so many trip photos, but I really want to document what we did. This blog is my archive, so bear with me. I have two (or maybe three?) posts left to get out.
After the three of us left Southern England, we spent Mon-Fri at Center Parcs Sherwood Forest. It was a nice break in the trip. We were happy and busy with grandparents at the beginning and end of our two weeks, and this break in the middle was a chance to spend time away just the three of us before setting off for more extended family adventures.
