Vacation Pictures

Hello! I thought I would share a few of our vacation pictures. Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Connecticut are such beautiful states. I especially love all of the trees and the lakes.

Lots of swimming at the lake with Grandpa.

I hardly saw the girls and Benjamin the entire time. They were off playing with their cousins!

One of my favorite things we did was visit Plymouth Rock. Since we are learning about American History this coming year the timing was perfect.

The rock was a lot smaller than I expected, but you can read why here.

We also visited the replica of the Mayflower and Plimoth Plantation.

We had plenty of time to relax and are already looking forward to visiting again next year. My mom and I also went to quite a few antique stores, so I will share some of my new finds soon.

I loved our trip there 5 yrs ago. We were surprised at the size of the rock back then.
Wasn't it fun touring down in Old Ironside?
Your pics are great and looks like lots of fun!

The pictures are fabulous and I know it will make so much sense to the children when they study it this year.

Great photos Kelli. Looks like you had a lot of fun on your vacation. We haven't been anywhere in a long time. Makes me want to take a mini vacation. Thanks for sharing.

Awww, we are only 7 miles from CT. You could have stopped by here for a visit! ;-)

Welcome back. It sounds (and looks) like y'all had a great vacation. Massachusetts is on my list of places to visit with my kids in the next few years. My son loves history and would be completely enthralled there.

Brings back memories our kids were about the same age. We also visited the Boston Tea Party. They loved throwing the tea overboard. Thanks for sharing your trip and bringing back such wonderful memories for this gramma!
Hope your Wednesday is Blessed,

Hey Kelli, surfin' the web and found you off of the "More of Him, Less of Me" site. You and I share several movie favorites so thought I would shout out. I enjoyed your vacation pics, we were there back in the late 90's but I remember, too, thinking that rock was much smaller than expected. Grace and peace.
