2018 Adventures

June: Ogunquit with All the parents!

Yes, you read that correctly. We went away for the weekend with my parents and my husbands parents. We stayed for three nights, they each stayed two nights, and we had one night overlapping where we all hung out together. It was fun! Seriously, we had a lovely time.

July: Metfern Cemetery

There is a cemetery sort-of hidden in the woods behind my husband’s great uncle’s house, and we look for it with my mother-in-law during the July 4th cookout. Last year, we just got lost in the woods. But this year, we found it! It’s a collection of numbered graves from residents of the Metropolitan State Hospital and the Fernald School. There’s actually been an ongoing project to give names to all the numbers, and you can read about it here.

July: Winery

Sometimes we go to the winery with my cousin, Julie and our friend, Lily and they always want to take a picture and they always looks amazing and I always look like this:

I don’t know why I can’t look normal

August: Sullivan Sibling Summit

My mother-in-law has a million siblings (just kidding, she has 9 siblings) and this year they planned a reunion and it was AMAZING! As a family, we rented an entire hotel on this golf course in New Hampshire. My husband’s uncle showed us around an abandoned train station in the woods at night. We found a great fabric store just down the street. 10/10, would go again.

August: Clark’s Trading Post

We popped in for a quick visit on the way home from the family reunion to relive growing up.

September: Cousin’s Wedding

My cousin got married! I don’t know why I didn’t take any pictures of her or with her, but I did take these other pictures so that’s what I have to share.

October: Disney 2018

Because we went at the very end of October, we got to see and celebrate Halloween, enjoy Epcot’s Food & Wine Festival, and saw the start of Christmas. We figured out that if I take a nap every afternoon, I don’t turn into a zombie at 8 pm. And we went on Soarin’ 4 times! Because the line was very short!

    “trash moments” indeed, hahah. You had such a fun year! I’m jealous about Disney, hoping to go back next year.

      I hope you can go! We went when I was growing up (early high school age) and honestly I didn’t get the appeal. But as an adult, I love it.
