The Chirping Moms: Where to Wednesday: Nantucket

Where to Wednesday: Nantucket

Last week Maggie & I traveled to Nantucket, MA. We went to visit friends who have a house on the island. It was a wonderful trip for a number of reasons.
From the time Maggie was born, until 10 months ago, she had my undivided attention ALL day, every day. It's been a wonderful, but very hectic 10 months as a mom of two. I love having two, but sometimes wish for a couple of days, I could give each of my girls their own time. This summer I was lucky enough to do that with each of them. When Alex had surgery earlier this summer, my mom took Maggie for 3 days. For the first time since she was born I got to have time just me & Alex. It was so nice to be able to do that. Then, last week, my mom took Alex so I could take Maggie on a little getaway to Nantucket. It was really cool to have 4 days of one on one time with Maggie. I feel very blessed to have gotten some time alone with each of my girls this summer.
Maggie & I are very lucky to have been invited on a wonderful trip for our "one on one" time. Our friends, Meghan & Brinker, were the world's best hosts & we really had an awesome week. I had a chance to see a whole bunch of friends throughout the week that were also visiting Meghan & Brinker.

Nantucket is really a great place to bring kids/ a family vacation. It is very quiet & relaxing. The beaches are some of my favorite I have ever been. I took Maggie for a walk on the beach one afternoon & we were the only ones in sight at one point. The center of town has such fun kids stores, book stores & bakeries! Also, there are lots of families around so there are a number of options for family friendly dinning. We also lucked out & happened to be there while a carnival was visiting the island.



A fun travel accessory for the trip: These adorable luggage tags from Preppy Chick!
Maggie is just starting to recognize her name spelled out so she was very excited to put this on her bag. Be sure to check out Preppy Chick's shop. She has adorable luggage tags and SO much more.


Some highlights of the trip:


Maggie LOVES airplanes. She was thrilled that we were getting to fly somewhere. To her surprise, we got to walk off the plane on the jetway at the airport. Also, it is a very small airport with a lot of tiny planes that were all parked where we were walking in. Maggie was in heaven.

  5. Oh my gosh, what a fun trip!! I absolutely believe that you have to spend time alone with each child. . . and it's especially nice when you can get away from home and your to-do list. It looks like you guys had a wonderful time. Your blog is so cute. If I'm not already a follower, I'll be following now!
