Fall In New Hampshire

autumn in new hampshire

One of our most favorite parts of New England, has quickly become fall in New Hampshire. 
It's honestly unlike anything I've ever seen and can literally bring tears to your eyes. 

We visited twice during the fall of 2021 and were able to experience so much of the fun and beauty. Some of our favorite areas include (but are not limited to):
North Conway
Woodstock (Kancamgus Hwy)
Bartlett (Bear Notch Pass)

One of our favorite things to do, and the best way to enjoy the beauty of the area, is hike. Get off the main road and really see what the area has to offer. We saw some amazing waterfalls and rivers.
Glen Ellis Falls
Ripley Falls
The Davis Path (Suspension Bridge over the Saco River)
The Flume Gorge

Another great way to see the area is by train or sky. It's a great way to get a better vantage point and have some new experiences. 
North Conway Scenic Railroad
The Mount Washington Cog Railway
Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway
Mount Washington Auto Road

And you know we can't forget about some of the amazing restaurants.
Rek'lis Brewing Company (our FAVORITE)
Peach's Restaurant
Tuckerman's Restaurant and Tavern
The Sunrise Shack
Red Fox Bar and Grille
Cabin Fever Restaurant

If you haven't already, you definitely need to put New Hampshire on your calendar the first weekend in October!

Our Baby is Two!

Hayden hasn't had near the screen time on this blog but, oh man, he deserves it all!
This year we're celebrating in all the ways we weren't able to for his first birthday (which fell on moving day), surrounded by family, cake, and  all the Blippi gifts!

We love you so much, Booty Bear! Thank you for making everyday funnier, wilder, and sweeter!

It's Been a Year

Wednesday, February 23, 2022

It's been a year since we said "see ya' later" to some of our best friends, since our babies last slept in our Camden home, and we moved away from the place we called home for nearly 14 years.

Some days the pain of being gone hits harder than others. Some days I don't notice it at all. 
Moving so quickly, leaving family, friends, co-workers, our church, all while in the midst of a pandemic. I  feel like we barely got to say goodbye. 

It feels like time has stood still, and flown by at a million miles an hour, all at the same time. I barely remember the 6 weeks we spent living in a temporary apartment. I do know I nearly went crazy, but we did survive it. It's like my mind and body were in complete survival mode.

Sometimes it feels like we're only living here in Massachusetts temporarily; like we're visiting. It's hard to describe. We're having fun, making memories, and having new adventures. But it's also hard to find a place to fit in or meet anyone; make friends.

Today, for one of the first times, I felt a little bit of normalcy. The kids had friends over, laughter and music filled the house, and I know things are going to continue to get easier and better.
