The morning jog was a tad bit unpleasant due to the rain, but I hear in Indy you guys are begging for rain.. wish I could send some your way! I have never been to a greener state then New Hampshire. It's the most vibrant and lush land! Everywhere you look is green! Not much was on our agenda for today, which was nice. My mom went to drop off the sis'n'law at the airport so SRD and I explored the area and found the 'old hole'. A swimming hole at the river! It wasn't the greatest spectacle but the hike there was really relaxing! There were tons of little spots to stop and rest in/near the water. I'm going to make an effort to get back to that trail again before we leave. It would be the perfect place to take a packed lunch and a book to hang out all day!
Once my mom got back to the room, we went to Woodstock, a little town down the road. There were a few more shops to browse through and I got my future mom and pop some gifts! I won't tell you what they are because I know they read this. :) I was asking the lady in the store if we could take a certain something on the plane. (Yes, papa Weddle.. it's food!) She said yes and then asked where we were from. I told her Indiana and she said 'No way.' I side glanced at my sister giving her the 'Is Indiana really that far?' look when the cashier said that she was from Kokomo! What a small world! Then we talked about how hot it is in Indy and how lucky we were because it is so nice here. I also stopped by the local brewery to pick up some beers for my beer connoisseur fiance. Hopefully I picked out a few good ones!
Tonight, dinner was at the Gypsy Cafe, specializing in foods from all over the world! After reading about a million reviews of the place (mostly all great reviews!) .. I ordered the New England Mac n Cheese which was macaroni baked in cranberry sauce and cheese with bacon and potato bits on top. As strange as it sounds.. the flavors really went well together! My mom ordered the pumpkin pasta and we both had a little of each others. I personally liked the mac n cheese better but I think she enjoyed the pasta! After dinner, Cindy, Mom and I went out to sing some karaoke! It was SO fun! There was a pretty eclectic crowd there so we got the whole range of genres! I sang a couple songs and mom even went up there and sang a song! It was priceless. :) (video below photo slideshow) Sorry for posting so late, we just got back!
Tomorrow we're goin' on a train ride and a night time lantern hike! Can't wait to tell you all about it!
