Oh The Places You Will Go

So after a year of planning, conniving, scheming, plotting, worrying, saving, and much more…

This past weekend I finally got to execute my plan!

It started with this…

A friend delivered this to my hubby on Thursday evening at work! It was a letter I wrote complied of a bunch of Dr. Suess quotes telling him roughly what was going on…

Then this…

My mom created these wonderful, Thing 1,2, and 3 shirts for the children to again give a clue for the coming weekend.

Also involved was a Dr. Seuss pillowcase and themed pj’s, which missed getting photographed!

Friday morning we packed up and headed North, with hubby driving and me reading directions…You know I love him when I am willing to drive over this bridge again…

Once we got beyond here, it was pretty smooth sailing to our first destination…Bellingham, MA…through several friends I was able to secure lodging with a conservative family (who just happened to be one of our preachers cousins and who also knew many of my husbands Wine cousins). We spent the weekend boarding and fellowshipping with this family and their church friends. But the goal of the weekend was this…

If you know my husband, you know he loves children stories, and loves telling them! I was inspired by a Dr. Seuss book, my sister Dani, gave one of our children for their birthday last year. In it there was art created by Dr. Seuss which hubby fell in love with. I wasn’t able to find that art work but I was able to find this…

He had a blast admiring the artwork created to honor Dr. Seuss and his creativity. The piece that featured Horton, the Things, Cindy Lou, Thedwick, Sam I Am, and more was an open book, inviting you to walk through and explore! Not only does my husband love children’s books, he loves art, this garden was right up his alley! Here are some of the figures alone, beautiful and fun…

After spending the day exploring the other museums around this garden, we went on a search for THE Mulberry St. mentioned in “It Happened On Mulberry Street”. No the original one does not intersect with Bliss!

It was a super fun weekend. I am so glad to have been blessed with the inspiration, patience, tight-mouth, funding, and friends to make this weekend possible! 

It’s not everyday I can surprise my husband with a fun, memory filled weekend away. It’s not everyday my husband turns 30. But it is everyday that I am blessed to spend with him and enjoy him.
