  • A Divine Shrine

    After visiting the mansions, we drove to Massachusetts. On our way, we saw The Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield. (How many Hall of Fames can we see? First football, then baseball, and we even passed by the Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport!) We decided to stop there, but unfortunately they were closed. But […]

  • Mansion Hopping Part 2

    Today, we woke up early, parked the RV in front of The Elms, and walked 15 minutes to Chateau-sur-Mer, the home to 3 generations of the Wetmore family. Chateau-sur-Mer is a product of the American-China Trade, and was built in 1852! It is actually modeled in the style of an Italian Villa, however, Mr. Wetmore […]

  • Mansion Hopping Part 1

    The past two days, we have been occupied with, as Gigi put it, “Mansion Hopping.” The city of Newport, Rhode Island, was the location of many Summer Homes of the wealthy during the Gilded Age (I’ll explain more on why it’s called that later). Some of the homes include: The Breakers (built by Cornelius Vanderbilt […]

  • Plymouth Rocks! And so does Cape Cod!

    Today (Thurs., Oct. 10) we went to Gillette Field, where the Pats and the Revolution (the soccer team) play, and Plymouth, Massachusetts. At Plymouth, we saw the Plymouth Rock and learned a little bit about its history. In fact, we learned that when they were moving it, it split in half, with one half in […]

  • Touring around Bahston

    Today, we after picking up the rental car, we drove into Boston. After driving about 30 minutes from the seaside town that we were staying at, we arrived at Fenway Park, “America’s Most Beloved Ballpark.” We parked about access the street from the field, and quickly entered a short flurry of picture-taking. We walked about […]

  • Budweiser Beer Factory = Clydesdales!

    Oh, don’t worry, us kids weren’t allowed to drink any beer; but it was still pretty cool to be able to watch how it was made. Upon arrival, we looked at the timeline of the Anheuser-Busch, which included when they came out with the different beers. After poking around the gift shop for a while, […]

  • Mainly Maine

    We arrived in Maine 2 mornings ago and made a stop in Rumford to see the dam and the friendly gentleman at the Visitor’s Center suggested that we take a drive through Moose Alley (because if we were ever going to see a moose it would be there). Just two days prior, he and his […]

  • Sugarhouses and Creameries

    Today, after we returned the rental car, we headed to a sugar house that makes pure Vermont maple syrup. We watched a video on how it they make it and saw the machinery that makes it. The sugar house that we went to, called Braggs, is one of the places that still makes it the […]

  • A Stowe Day

    This morning we woke up bright and early so we could tour around the town of Stowe. After picking up our rental car, we went to a trail so we could enjoy the fall leaves. We walked around for a little bit and made up a game of running away and hiding from each other. […]

  • The Adirondacks and Lake Placid (amazingness)

    This morning, we drove from Speculator, New York (yes, that’s the town’s name) to Indian Lake to Saranac Lake, to Lake Placid. The drive took us through the Adirondack mountains. The ADKs (as they are called) are famous for Adirondack chairs; we came there to leaf peep and to admire the scenery. The leaves were […]
