I love Vacation!!

We are back from vacation and unfortunately back in the office. We had a great time in Connecticut this past week. We went to visit my sister-in-law Amanda and my new brother-in-law, Josh. They are currently stationed at the Navel sub base in Groton, Connecticut. We visited lots of little towns around Groton including my favorite, Mystic. It is the cutest little town with a draw bridge on main street to let the boats through. We also visited New York. It was Justin and Susan and Kelly's first time in New York so we hit all the sites, Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Ground Zero, Wall Street, Times Square, Central Park, and more. Amanda almost killed us that day but she got us through to see everything. We also visited Boston and stayed with a friend from college. All in all it was a great trip and we got to relax and spend time with family! Oh, I almost forgot, we also got to hear a concert in the Dishmon's church's outside pavilion! You would have had to be there to appreciate it :) Enjoy the pictures. I will also post more on a photo site and will put up a link when I do.



The view from the top of tower at Fort Griswold in Groton. Not even 5 minutes from Amanda's.

Touring the Nautilus. The first US Sub.

Eating dinner at a Paul's Pasta on the Thames River in Groton.

The oldest, still operating restaurant in the US (in Boston).

Times Square.
The Ward's and the Dishmon's at Mystic Seaport after church.

Hmm. So, why did the Wades have to hide their eyes while the Dishmon's were fine? Maybe there was a reason Lindsay liked 'Mystic' so much? Looks like y'all had fun. That's good. Now, get back to work!
