A fantastic 4th!

July 08, 2019 in

Hi there!
Happy Monday. as I'm sure some of you can tell, I'm behind the 8 ball today.
This past week has been so busy and fun. However, I'm playing catch up now. Eeek!

It's obvious how much I love the 4th of July. This year was no exception.
I'm lucky enough to live right in downtown Plymouth. My mom, mother- in-law and sister-in-law came over to watch the parade then have a cookout. 

It was hot as could be, but still an awesome day. Its great that our families are so close. We all spend all of the holidays together. There is no "splitting time"
Thank you to Colleen for this picture!!!!

Later that day, Chad & I walked back into town for the fire works. We went right to my office, which has a straight on view of Plymouth Harbor.
We did come outside though to hear the Plymouth Philharmonic.  I'd be a big 'ol liar if I tried to tell you that I didn't have a lump in my throat and a tear in my eye when the Phil was playing "Stars and Stripes Forever" as the harbor was ablaze in fireworks. #america

We got back from the fireworks around 10:30 (mind you, I'm normally in bed by 8:30-9:00 pm). Where our street is right in downtown , we had traffic for a good few hours after. We live on a little side street, so the dogs were both very aware that something was going on, and wouldn't settle down.

The next day, there was no sleeping in (much to Chad's chagrin!!). We had a road trip planned!!!

He went to college out in Western Mass on the Vermont boarder. So, we went out there to see his old stomping grounds and to see some of the natural waterfalls in western MA.

We so enjoyed ourselves! The drive out and back was a blast all onto its self.
7 hours round trip, uninterrupted is always a great thing.

With the help of a few locals, we found the best little restaurant.  

The Trail House Kitchen in North Adams      Trail House Kitchen

The food was to die for!

After lunch, we crossed into Vermont.  
Living in Plymouth, I kind of get obsessed with the ocean. I hear the ships horn's from my yard. I smell the salty air. I love it so much, that sometimes I take for granted all of the other beauty that New England has to offer.

The beautiful Green Mountains as the back drop.

A great day with my person!

How was your 4th? How did you celebrate?
