I returned to America and my family for a couple hours and then headed east to visit New England and Canada. Why? Because I wanted to. Here's a recap of the week:


spent some quality time with family in Hampton, ate lots of ice cream in Dover, and experienced my first frappe in Portsmouth (in most normal areas of America, we call them milkshakes).


touched a light house and ate lobster...what else would I do there?!


Ben & Jerry's ice cream factory tour
lots of bridges, syrup, and trees


This place is gorgeous. I think I said that about 1748 times. It's true. It's not like the "eh, hoser" Canada you think of most of the time. No, it's french Canadian and I LOVED it. oui oui.


two words--(cream filled) Dunkin' Donuts.
We spent a day in Cape Cod. It was a little boring for me. I'm sure it would have been more fun if I was around 60 and liked to sit in the car, go for long drives, and look at trinkets in boutiques (not that there is anything wrong with that...there just wasn't enough action for me). But we did find a cool look-out spot and another light house.

Providence, RI, to more exact. I think my favorite night of the trip was spent in this little town with a man we met washing his clothes in the water who befriended us and acted as our personal tour guide. He told us the best restaurants to stop at, showed us the best views in town, and explained how to catch crabs in the poopy sea water. Thank you, Frankie Bones!

I barely survived the jet lag, pretty much falling asleep hard by 9:30pm every night and waking up at 6am (7pm and 4am MST back home...ugh).
