Northeast Roadtrip Review 2012

I reviewed our summer Southeast roadtrip, so I figured it made sense to just quickly review the Northeast roadtrip.

The first day we headed into Quincy to celebrate Jim and Lisa's wedding.  Then we went to Martha's Vineyard to celebrate our anniversary a little late.

Kevin and I had a great time on the Cape.  We stayed with Kevin's mom and spent a lot of time with the family.  Pete, Adrienne, and Leni came to spend time playing and swimming with us on the Cape, and stayed for dinner. We went to visit my grandmother Catherine, and then took James to nap in Provincetown. Finally we celebrated the 4th of July with fireworks on the pond.

We headed north to Maine, but first we made a stop in the lovely Portsmouth, New Hampshire so that James could get a break from driving. We all loved it. My favorite part was the huge submarine just sticking out the ground. Awesome.

We spent almost 3 days with Allison and Dan in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, which is apparently long enough to get lobster rolls twice and try three different flavors of gelato. Not to mention seeing lots of Cape Elizabeth and Portland, and spending quality time with Allison and Dan. On our way back, we stopped for a quick visit with Cate, Matt, Phoebe and Vivienne, and had a lovely time with them as well.

Then as our last part of our trip, Casey, Victoria, Laurel, and Oliver came to visit us on their way back to Massachusetts from their summer roadtrip. The kids had some awesome dance parties in the living room and the adults had fun when they went to bed.
