New Hampshire Vacation

Hello Friends!

I've just returned from a fun filled family vacation to New Hampshire. We do a trip with my in-laws each year and this trip was action packed and adventure filled with an amusement park, moose hunts, hiking to waterfalls, horse back riding and blueberry picking, all-you-can-eat lobster and early morning fishing. I don't think we could've packed one more thing into the trip.

With two boys full of energy, all we had to do was mention an amusement park and they were climbing the walls with excitement. We could've spent all day on the log flume and water rides alone (I felt like I was 5 again, I enjoyed it so much!)

Maine and New Hampshire are known for their amazing blueberries and we were excited to find a farm where you could pick your own. We picked 10 pounds of the most beautiful sweet blueberries I've ever seen or tasted!

Out of this, I made a cobbler.

And a batch of muffins. Both were huge hits!

We went on a moose watch, but all we got out of that was about a dozen mosquito bites each. Maybe next year! Moose are one of my favorite animals and I'd love to see a bull moose in person. It's on my bucket list.

We also got up super early and went salmon and trout fishing. Loads of fun and this lovely picture is of me getting slapped in the face by the salmon I caught.

We also toured a submarine, which made me want to lose my mind as I do not do well in tight, closed in spaces.

We came back rested and full of great memories with a wonderful time spent together. I'll be sharing the cobbler and muffin recipes soon.
