I'm back from my Spring Break and am so thankful for the amazing friends who helped me out by guest blogging while I was gone! I know you all loved the posts that they shared! I loved reading them!
Hubby and I went to the east coast. We drove through New York state, stopping at Wakins Glen State Park and Taughannock Falls too.
We even randomly happened to drive through a Bainbridge, New York! We stopped in the dark and we (I) took pictures of everything that said BAINBRIDGE on it for scrapbooking purposes!
Then we went to Worcester in Massachusetts and stayed with a friend for a few days. We went into Boston for a day, ate some ah-mazing seafood, and then went to Concord, Lexington, Salem, and Gettysburg. It was a very historical trip, which are our favorites!
Yeah. I didn't know this would have EYES and little tiny LEGS when I ordered it! Note to self... next time be sure it says STUFFED TAIL! It was still tasty... but I totally felt like the family in "A Christmas Story" when they bring out the duck at the end and the mom's dying with laughter!
I even got to see NYC in the distance as we left Salem to drive to Pennsylvania... which, if you've followed this blog for two seconds, you know is my all-time favorite place on this EARTH!
Here's a scene from Gettysburg... This was a seriously amazing trip. Like one you need to go on. Immediately.
We NEVER take such unstructured trips and we just decided on a whim to go to Gettysburg. I would love to go back and spend more time, do the audio tour, etc... The museum is awesome... and have you ever seen or heard of the Gettysburg Cyclorama? Holy smokes. THAT was incredible!
And The House of the Seven Gables in Salem... which was so cool! They also have Nathaniel Hawthorne's home next to THotSG and The Scarlet Letter is one of my favorite books, so I loved going there too.
All right, fine, so we're history nerds. We LOVE taking trips like this. No beaches and sand and suntans for us!
So, that's what I was up to last week!
Since we've been home, I've added two new products to my shop. If you leave me a comment and tell me your favorite historical vacation spot (we're always looking for more!), I'll pick a winner tomorrow and send you BOTH items!
Earth Day flippy book! This has lines for both primary and intermediate...
And this delicious donut classroom or hallway hunt for identifying complete sentences and fragments! There's also a center activity and a craftivity! I know this is probably a beginning of the year thing for most people... it is for me!... but I couldn't wait to make this with these adorable graphics!
Ok! That's it! Tell me where I should go on my next vacation... as long as it's historical! I'll pick a winner tomorrow!
