Driving around the quaint towns of New Hampshire looking for covered bridges was a wonderful way to spend a couple of days when my parents were here. It was like we were on a treasure hunt trying to find them all. Most of the bridges do not have any signs that tell you exactly how to get to them (which I love) so it's very exciting when you do get to one! Every time we would get to one I kept saying, "oh, this is my favorite one!" but it was too hard to choose a favorite. I just adore the charm they have. Worn wood, majestic views of the rivers, snow covered trees surrounding them...it was wonderful. I also enjoyed exploring this state that I live in! I wish I could have taken pictures of all of the barns, old rustic doors on homes, fresh pine wreaths hanging on old churches, and mossy rock walls we saw. Caroline and Olive were the greatest little travelers. I was able to squish my post pregnancy hips and bum between their carseats (hence why I wasn't jumping out and snapping more pictures) and enjoy my sweet girls company the entire time. We tried to find a cozy little greasy spoon for lunch and we ended up at the Bluebird Cafe somewhere down south. Yes it left a bit to be desired, but the red stools that lined the counter as we walked in were again charming.

Proof that sweet little Olive was with us on on our adventure. She only got up to eat with us at lunch.
We have been married 5 wonderful years. We live in Washington, DC where Adam is attending Law School and will graduate in the class of 2012. I stay home with our two little girls and I am loving every minute of it.
