We spent last weekend in the White Mountains and besides the fact that it rained the entire weekend and every place that we tried to go to was closed, it was the perfect weekend! We left Thursday after work, from a house that was in complete disarray. We finally had the hardwood installed in our house and we had to move everything out of the living room/dining room, kitchen and den. We couldn't get out of there fast enough! Of course, we ran late and didn't actually make it to North Conway until close to 10pm. Our friends had made it up there a few hours before us and were settled in nicely when we arrived.
The next 3 days were spent relaxing, laughing, playing, swinging, shopping and driving to locations that were closed for the season. First up, Storyland. Luckily, it was only 5 minutes down the street and we sort of had a back-up plan. Sunday was a slightly different story. We decided that we would make the trek to Santa's Village, even though it was in the opposite direction from our house. It had to be open; it is Santa's Village after all and Christmas is right around the corner. Well, needless to say, it wasn't and as we pulled into the parking, tears running down our faces from laughter, we realized that Max would never even know the difference and so we spent the next half hour, getting family and friend shots in front of the magical (closed) Santa's Village. I think it's a good time to note that it was the only weekend in the fall that it was in fact closed. Like everything else so far, it was an adventure and a wonderful one at that.
(poor Jacob slept through Santa's Village...looks like you guys are going back:)
Thanks Jamie and Rob:)
