Day Trippin'

On Sunday, we took a little family trip up to the White Mountains area of New Hampshire. It was a beautiful day. Lots of clear blue sky:

Steve's parents and grandparents grew up in the Lincoln/Woodstock area. So usually we site see a little around town, to see how much has changed. Though this is not anyone in his familys' house, it is right around the corner from where his Mom grew up. The rainbow house. Yes it does stick out like a sore thumb:

Then we we headed to some of the 'main street' shops. Steve found this very cool 'old man on the mountain' and had to have it. It now hangs outside above our porch:

We can not forget the candy store. This little 'hole in the wall' has some of the best homemade goodies:

Behind the stores is the Pemigewasset river It runs all through the towns:

This sign may look funny, but not so funny if you are cruising down the highway and a moose comes running out of the woods:

Next we we went to the highest elevation point and checked out the view:

Nature at it's best. This pic does not do it any justice:

Me and Bryant:

Steve and Bryant. He soooo wants Bryant to see this and enjoy it:

Then we went to the gorge and checked out another area of the river:

Bryant loved the 'rock climbing' and fast water. It was very cool:

This was a beautiful view from the bridge above:

One last close up view:

It was a great day! Lots of walking. Lots of sight seeing. Lots of history. It was beautiful out. Once it gets a little warmer, we will head up for some trail climbing. Nature at its finest. Have a great week!

Very gorgeous pictures Dawn. Glad you had such an enjoyable trip. You asked about Brandon, he is doing very well considering everything. He manages to take care of the kids, work, clean and cook. I guess you can call him Mr. Mom...literally!!! Thanks so much for asking and being interested in the children's lives. I know Aleida would be pleased.
