Our last getaway of the summer...& as a family of three.

A couple of weeks ago, we made our final road trip/vacation of the summer.  Jared's cousin was getting married in Maine...about 6 hours from us.  We were going to spend a few additional days in that area, but after researching, we quickly discovered there was literally nothing to do anywhere near there. 

So we started to some research.  Ultimately we decided to go to one of our favorite vacation areas in New England, New Hampshire. We booked a hotel in North Conway for two nights. We planned on doing a bit of outlet shopping, and taking Lincoln to Story Land...of course!

I was 26 weeks pregnant for this trip, so we figured it would be our last little vacation as a family of three. Very bittersweet. 

Now. Back to the wedding in Maine. It was a 6 hour drive from our house in Connecticut. Thankfully Lincoln is the best traveler ever, so although the drive was long, it wasn't so bad. 

I found matching suits for Jared and Lincoln to wear. It was seriously the cutest thing ever, and Lincoln was so excited to dress up just like his daddy. 

I tried to find something to match them, but it was quite difficult being pregnant and all! Luckily, my mom had a shirt (non-maternity), that ended up working out quite well! 

Naturally Lincoln was the life of the party...as usual. He put on quite the show with his dance moves.

Even though Lincoln isn't looking at the camera, I still adore this photo.

At the end of the night, Lincoln found a flower patch and was determined to pick a flower for his momma. 

The next morning we headed out to New Hampshire. The drive was only a little over 2 hours...much shorter than the day before! 

Once we arrived, we hit some outlets and let Lincoln at the playground. 

The next day was time for Story Land!! We took Lincoln there last year, and he had so much fun. It really is the perfect amusement park for young children. 

We rode many rides. Well, Lincoln and daddy did. 

Lincoln even got to operate an excavator!! 

We let Lincoln drive us around on the antique cars....

And rode one of his favorites, the "choo-choo!"

This will be the only time my son is in jail...

And we topped off the day with ice cream for dinner!!

We really enjoyed our little mini-vacation. I think Lincoln did too, because he informed me we're going on vacation again in two weeks! I don't know where he comes up with this stuff, but he certainly keeps me laughing!!

Our next vacation will be a family of four!!  Wow!!!
