Greetings from Massachusetts!
Yesterday we packed the car, loaded up Lily Bean and all of her travel accessories (dvd player – check. boredom bag – check. 2 Belle dolls, 3 Snow White dolls and 1 Rapunzel doll – check). We made sure our cooler was packed with water, soda and juice and our snack bag was brimming with pretzels, popcorn and, of course, Twizzlers.
We made the 6.5 hour drive in just under 8 hours from start to finish. That included 2 bathroom breaks and about 45 minutes worth of stop and go traffic throughout Connecticut.
We made it through New Jersey and New York without much to report. I always love getting a glimpse of the NYC skyline from afar – the Empire State Building ALWAYS reminds me of Sleepless in Seattle. LOL
We headed over the George Washington Bridge and I got excited to think that we were closing in on Connecticut. A new state for all three of us!
After a ton of traffic in CT, it was almost time for Rhode Island. Another new state!
I put my camera on my lap, ready for the state sign.
After about 25 minutes of waiting for THE SIGN, I got a little distracted. I started to check out the fully loaded first aid kit that came in our car. And I missed the stinkin’ sign.
So here’s a picture of the first aid kit instead.
As evening set in, we crossed into Massachusetts – WOOHOO! p.s. Seekonk. Hehe.
Our final stop was Hyannis, MA (on Cape Cod) where we would spend the night before heading on to Boston. We found our hotel without incident, checked in and were excited to see a beautiful harbor directly across from our hotel room. It was time to drop the bags and go find a tasty seafood dinner before calling it a night.
Tomorrow will include seeing more of Cape Cod and the surrounding area!
