Day 5 and 6

Boston! We went to Boston with a simple agenda: Legos. Pie.

We rode a train from Salem to Boston, then took the orange line subway into town. The children had never ridden a subway before.

The children loved Legoland. A lot. It was pretty cool. I do have a few complaints. We bought this activity pack at the beginning but most of the stations for it the stamp was broken. Also James and I were looking forward to a factory tour and were disappointed when it was a movie of a factory tour. :/

However, we stayed for hours and bought some fun legos.

We heard that the best Boston Cream Pie was made at Mike’s Pastry. So we walked there next. And we were not disappointed! This was my first ever taste of Boston Cream pie. James however had had it because his father had been quite fond of it.

So randomly heard on a passing radio that our subway had a fire! Sure enough I got to see Boston’s first responders! We took a taxi back to the train station, which was fun because we got to see Downtown Boston.

(Real time interjection. I’m in Connecticut. I didn’t even know I was going to be in Connecticut)

I must say, I’m sad to leave Salem. It’s a wonderful town. And not just the witch stuff. Winter Island campground was fantastic. The staff was super nice. The campers were partiers. There was a wedding. A man fell off his boat and the coastguard saved him. The ocean all around you. Next time I go (see what I did there?) I want to go whale watching.

Real time again. I’m in New York at a KOA. It is absolutely the busiest campground I have ever been in. New York right? Wine store. All day activities. Two pools. And there is not a shuttle to NYC center like was advertised so we’re going to have to take a train. Also when we hit the ice cream shop we took the hood off of our stove vents and some of the roof of our camper, so James has gone into town to find items to repair this. Also New York is very beautiful and the people are nice. When I got here and saw that the roof of my camper was damaged I pulled out a bottle of wine but no corkscrew. I went to the people next-door, and they brought me one immediately and were very friendly with very cute accents.

Speaking of the camper next-door they have ceiling fans, they have a television, I mean an outdoor movie projector, on the outside of the camper, and they’re all watching some sort of sports ball with their family and I see it as #Goals.

OK I’m at the point where I’m doing voice to text. I’m gonna make my kids some ramen and watch Hocus-Pocus and go to bed.

Thank you all for following! I’ll put some photos on Facebook.
