Hey Guys! It’s 2017!! Happy New Year!! We thought it would be fun to look back on some of our favorite memories of 2016 with y’all. These are in chronological order and not in rank order.

America’s Historic Triangle

Located in Virginia: Jamestown, Williamsburg, and Yorktown are known as America’s Historic Triangle. We spent two weeks here, but really only scratched the surface of what there is to see and do. We started at the Yorktown Battlefield where we learned about the final major battle of the American Revolution. The boys loved it. They got … Continue reading »

Washington DC

Hey Guys!! We spent one week in the DC area and it wasn’t nearly long enough. We had four very crazy, very full, very looonngggg days where we ventured into the DC area and we still didn’t get everything on our list done. We somehow managed to snag tickets for the White House tour. We … Continue reading »

Newport Rhode Island

We spent one very long, very busy week in the Newport area of Rhode Island. This post is going to be picture heavy. I tried to scale it down, but honestly, I could do a separate post for each of the Newport Mansions. I don’t have time to do that though, so y’all will just … Continue reading »

Hampton Falls Area

We used Hampton Falls, NH as our base camp to explore the area. We spent two weeks in NH bouncing around between Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts. I usually break these kinds of posts up, but I’m going to smash it all into one this time! Are you ready? We spent a day in Salem, … Continue reading »

The Niagara Falls Area

We spent a week in the Niagara Falls area of New York. The weather was hit and miss…a few days it was more like summer, but mostly it was cool, windy, and rainy. Our RV park was only half an hour away from Buffalo…and since Jerl and the boys love wings so much…we had to have … Continue reading »

NYC Times Two

It took us two full days and walking over twenty miles to see what we wanted to see in New York City. And…as you might guess…we still didn’t see it all, but I wasn’t going to talk Jerl into going back any time soon. Big cities aren’t really our thing and New York City is about … Continue reading »

Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor, Your Huddled Masses…

Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to be free. Before Lady Liberty stood proudly on it, Liberty Island was a star-shaped Fort Wood. She has a copper shell about the same thickness as a penny and is 151 feet tall. There’s a great museum that details how, when, where and who … Continue reading »

The City Of Brotherly Love

Happy Independence Day! We spent a day roaming around Philadelphia and learning some history.   We did a walking tour of historic Philly. Of the thirty three places on the tour, we only made it to seventeen. One of the best things about it…it was all free!  If you ever make it to Independence Hall make … Continue reading »

E Pluribus Unum…Out of Many, One

We took a day to explore Valley Forge National Historic Park in Pennsylvania. We have mixed feelings about historical interpreters. We’ve seen some that are disturbingly creepy, but the Ranger’s at Valley Forge were top notch and a wealth of information. The new country didn’t have an army when the revolution began. General George Washington … Continue reading »
