Road Trippin With My Daughter

This weekend I took a mini vacation just me and my daughter to spend two nights at my sister-in-laws house in Delaware. It was a long ride about 4 hours and 23 minutes a drive I haven’t done since I was in my 20s. 

My sister-in-law wanting to be the best host asked us what we like to do. I told her she was getting two very unspoiled girls and we would be happy to do anything or nothing. We don’t do much and just getting away was fun for us. When she insisted I told her we like gardens, parks, museums, cemeteries and antiquing. She is a high achiever and gave us all of it.

We started at a cemetery at St. Peter’s Church in Lewes Delaware. There is so much history here. Delaware is the first of the original 13 states to ratify the constitution. This church has been serving the community since 1681. It was very interesting to see how Lewes grew around this cemetery and church. 

We then headed to Unique Find an antique store where we saw quite a lot of beautiful pieces. We stopped at the Mercantile at Milton, had an Italian lunch then an evening stroll. 

The next morning we went to breakfast. The botanical gardens, Lavender Fields and more Antique stores. She knows how to make two girls happy. 

Dinner was at a local pizzeria and then another evening stroll.

Spending time with my sister-in-law is important to me. Not only for me but because I want my daughter to know her aunt. I hope to go back soon maybe in the fall. It was definitely time well spent.
