the rock.

09 Nov

so, alot has happened since we last posted… sorry for the delay!

last weekend, we took our first big journey and traveled to plymouth, ma for the night. we arrived at GeeBee’s  (my grandma) on saturday night and received some wonderful local food! geebee has tried to become a locavour after reading a book called animal, vegetable, miracle. it was amazing to see the ways she has been able to get things that are only locally grown. we had cheese, shrimp, fish, bread, green beans, and even sweet potato pie that were all produced right around plymouth. i know i am not doing the process justice, but it did make me want to go to the farmers market here to try to my part!

but anyway, after our meal and good night’s rest, we ventured out on a cold sunday morning to see plymouth rock, a reproduction of the mayflower, and plimouth plantation which is a reinvention of a 17th century village that the pilgrims settled in. it was so great! we then had to leave which was a bummer! but we are so grateful for the time we had with geebee and can’t wait to see her again at christmas!

our journey then continued as we traveled north an hour to get to boston. we met our wonderful friends justin and holly, and erin and austin for dinner at wagamama and it was SO great to see familiar faces! we reminisced about the DR and although our time was so short with them, it was still a gift to be able to catch up on our crazy lives.

dsc_0627this week has been back to the routine. we have enjoyed having a pretty normal week. next week looks like more of the same so we’ll prob keep this “normal” thing up until thanksgiving! i’m sure nick will update again soon with more from his seminary world but i think thats all for now. we miss winston, florida, and warm weather 🙂 keep us in your prayers!

p.s. i would like to put up a pic from saturday’s game for katie sovik (i love you!). how bout them noles?!

    So anyone else who makes their way to Plymouth can also have some local food – as long as what’s in my freezer holds out. Or if you come next summer, we can go to the Farmer’s Market and choose what you like.

    Nick, thanks for the heads-up about Plymouth. Too bad we were there 1 week after you guys. It would have been nice to meet OUTSIDE of Templeton Hall or the Princeton NJ zipcode.

    But you forgot to warn me that “The Rock” is basically just that…*A* Rock. And that’s it.

    Couldn’t they at least install some music or flashing lights? Or what about a replica where you can take crayons and do a rubbing over the date as a souvenier?

    Did you walk out on the rock wall? That was fun.
