Our weekend away

With Jeremiah's parents coming into town for two weeks Jeremiah and I jumped at the chance to get away for a few days and the kids got to spend some one-on-one time with Grandma Vicki and Grandpa Wally.  We took off for the Berkshires Thursday morning and enjoyed visiting museums, hiking, shopping at outlet stores, eating out, and having endless hours to talk uninterrupted.  

We loved the Norman Rockwell museum.  Amazing artist and it was really neat to learn more about his life and accomplishments. 
Funny how this one reminded both of us of our boys!

The weather was great and we loved getting some hiking in.  Mt. Greylock was a very steep and challenging climb but so worth it!

We had fun driving around the area and seeing the sights and came across the Tanglewood which is the summer home of the Boston Pops.  The grounds were beautiful and full of huge twisted trees.

We visited the Hancock Shaker Museum one afternoon and saw lots of baby animals.

Our last hike was on Washington Mountain.  Beautiful day but very soggy trails to navigate.

We had a great four days away and were glad to be heading back to our children.  It was great to have their hugs again and hear about their adventures while we were away.
