Laurel came and stayed over night. On Saturday morning, the weather was perfect and Ben was in the mood for an adventure, so we decided to head out and be tourists on the North Shore.
We started at one of my favorite breakfast diners in town:
Next, we began driving towards Newburyport. Laurel had never been, and it’s one of Ben and I’s favorite places to waste an afternoon. We browsed through the little shops, bought candy, ice cream, and slush (respectively), and walked along the waterfront:
The day was absolutely gorgeous and I had such an amazing time. One of my favorite stops of the day was a new children’s store called Lively Kids- pricey, adorable stuff. Laurel bought Milo a Sophie the Giraffe teether that I was obsessing over, which totally made my day. Ben and I also got an awesome clock for the kitchen from the flea market. Sitting on the dock, Laurel decided that we need boats:
After a quick stop at Ben’s parent’s house and Marini Farms (blueberries and fresh bread!), we headed back to Central Mass. I think it was the first perfect summer day I’ve had in years.
