Our first big adventure on our girls vacation was Marblehead Lighthouse. It’s pretty cool, even though we didn’t go up in the lighthouse. My little girl wasn’t old enough and we were fine with walking around the grounds.
We started off the day with a picnic lunch. This was a fun experiment with understanding the wind, for the kids. Somehow it was really hard to remember that your plate would fly away. Definitely amusing and a teeny bit frustrating when crackers would come flying at your head.
After lunch we discovered what fun it was to climb the rocks and take family pictures with 2 grandparents, 3 parents and 5 children. I think we got some good ones, but I’m pretty sure the rest of the women disagree. Except for L.L. she likes every picture taken of her.
After Marblehead we needed another place to go so we could get more energy out of the kids and get to an early dinner. Luckily there was a cute little park with much less wind and we got to play outside more – yay!
Last stop was dinner. I was almost too nervous to eat, as L.L. was sitting next to a tired Grandpops and I ordered spaghetti and cottage cheese for her. She loved both, with doesn’t say much because she eats cottage cheese like it’s going out of style everyday! The spaghetti was the new guy and all I could picture was her tossing it overboard, which really means right in Grandpops face – oh my!
With a successful dinner (no spaghetti in the face!) and a sticker that says “I fed Lemmy.” We were all set to head home. It was such a fun day! By the way the Lemmy story is something that this little seafood joint does for the kids. After you eat all your food you get to feed the beast in the basement. They each get a cracker or something like it to toss down the stairs. Then you wait for the tail to hit the ceiling because you have just made Lemmy happy. It is so cute and they boys LOVED it!
Such a great time.
