Trip Summary

So per the fact that on the last four days of our trip we did not have consistent internet and per the fact that once home I was thrown back into the craziness of life I really failed on chronicling the last of our trip. So here are some of the highlights...  and a few lowlights too...

... taking my first taxi
... flying cross-country non-stop
... getting lost (twice ;)) in our hotel 
... relaxing in the hotel hot tub
... the Pike Place Market
... lunch on Lake Washington
... riding the train to Portland (a pretty awesome experience)
... dragging our luggage through Portland
... going to see my cousin and her family (complete with a new baby who was a doll :))
.... and flying home :) :) all by myself

This trip taught me alot about myself and my relationship with God and coming home has helped me to see everything and put all the pieces together... it is so awesome to know that this was of God :)

Day 9- Hanover NH, Vermont, Boston, MA

Sunday started out with a meeting at 10 AM.... and what goes best with a meeting??? If you did not say coffee, I am wondering if you have read any of the other posts on this blog :) ;)

Anyways, our meeting was at the Dirt Cowboy Cafe and the coffee was surprisingly good considering the name....

The meeting lasted until 11:30 and then it was one last stop at the Dartmouth gear store so that MA could get a Dartmouth hoodie.

We then crossed over the Connecticut River and into Vermont. We stopped in Woodstock for lunch. I got a Vermont Steak Dip with fries... yum :)

We traveled down the Vermont- New Hampshire border stopping at points of interest along the way....

Some of the highlights were:
One of the covered Bridges we stopped at...

We finally found an old telephone booth :) yay.... (too bad there was no telephone)

Sign on Woodstock common....

The Sign in Woodstock common telling about the town

At the Calvin Coolidge Homestead.... it was very interesting but we did net get very many pics...
