Nantucket, MA


YES i'm alive. Sorry it's been awhile since i last posted. I have been quite busy! Busy with screaming kids but also busy with some fun things too. My vacation to Nantucket was awesome. What a cool place. Those of you that don't have any idea where Nantucket is... It's in Massachusetts just under Cape Cod, and is the island next to Martha's Vineyard, if that helps any?? Anyways, way cool place! Not a cheap vacation spot might i add... I'm not thinking i will be going back anytime soon. It wasn't all vacation for me, still had to work my 8 Hr days but when i did get off i went and explored the area. What a cool place to visit.

So i didn't take near as many pictures as i should have. But here are a few...
So i had no idea i would be taking this 8 passenger plane to get to the island. I was a bit nervous at first (alot had to do with my young pilot... i swear he was my age) But hey it all worked out... other than me getting stuck sitting by Brooke who get's car sick almost every time we get in a car, let's just say thank goodness for the barf bags the plane provided. 
Looking out the window towards the city of Boston.
Up in the air...

Little Trevor LOVED the plane ride.


Nantucket had some of the best beach's i have ever seen. Crazy fun waves.

Brooke playing at the beach... had to deal with some major temper tantrums but for the most part she enjoyed playing in the sand.
Catching snapping turtles was so much fun... something i had never done before. You tie a raw chicken drum stick onto the end of a string and wait for the turtle to bite, just like fishing but with chicken not a worm :) (these turtles were HUGE by the way and not very nice...)

Trevor waiting to catch one (he thought it was so cool). 

One of the many many boats. I have never seen so many big boats in my life... were talking VERY pricey.



Nantucket was beautiful. The weather was perfect all week. In fact the day we left was the day of the hurricane warning. The airport was crazy packed, everyone trying to leave the island before the hurricane hit. I was so glad we decided to stay the one week and not two... they closed down all the beach's... i guess the waves were suppose to get super high... in a way i think it would have been cool to see but i would have been very nervous knowing a hurricane was on it's way. Overall it was a great vacation and i feel very lucky i was invited to tag along... even if it was work. :)
