we went to maine, but first we stopped at newburyport

Last week we finally made the long drive north to Maine… for a quick few days anyways. But I hate doing that drive all at once so we decided to stop a little over halfway there at Newburyport, Mass. This cute New England town came highly recommended and we were excited! To get out of the car…. To explore…. To eat. We got sandwiches first thing and then walked around and window shopped. My parents went to check in at the hotel and my sister’s family and mine went to check out Plum Island and get a glimpse of the ocean. The kids ran around and then we stopped for drinks before dinner. And as we do after dinner we let the kids swim and then had a popcorn party back in our room. A full day that felt like more than one but possibly three?
