Thanksgiving in New Hampshire

So for Thanksgiving I went home with my friend Spencer. He lives in Monroe New Hampshire.

We visited his Aunts B &B and she has Lamas as pets!!!!!

This is the four of us that went up there! Me, then Ali, then Spencer, and finally Danny (Hes another Californian. Actually did my internship over the summer with him!)

These are Spencer's Parents. And his Dads best friend.
They were really nice and just plain awesome!

So on the way there we ran out of gas on the interstate!!! We were going up a hill when it started to go, so we all jumped out while it was still moving to push it. We didn't get very far!We were s o close to top though!!!!! So this is Danny posing in front of the car! It was freezing out and snowing!!!

This is the Mount Washington Hotel. It the hotel t hat the movie the shining is based off of. We went up to it and walked around, its a really cool hotel!!!

In the summer this is a local swimming hole. I thought it looked way to dangerous to jump into, since its like a waterfall and its swirling around at the bottom and following right into another little waterfall. But Spens says it a lot of fun. Although he did admit they have lost a couple tourist to it!!! I thought this spot looked really gorgeous with the snow!!

Spencer, Danny, and me. I really don't know why I made that face! lol

Same spot!

Everything looked so pretty covered in snow! Northern New Hampshire is really
pretty in winter!

This is actually back at school before Thanksgiving, but i wanted to add it in. This is Micheal Simon the guy who won Americas Next Iron Chef. He was a graduate of my school so he came and gave a demo and question and answer session. We stayed for a little bit. Unfortunately they didn't start it till 9, and I am an am student now and had test the next day!!! :(

Spencer's Dad has these really cool old stoves installed in the house that he actually uses. I wish I had more pictures of the house. His dad spent 13yrs building this house by himself. He did it piece by piece as could aford it. Its a two bedroom log-house, and its huge!!!! This first stove he keeps going all the time int he kitchen to heat tea water, or keep food warm in there pot, and just to warm up by.

This one is in the living room and actually used to heat the house, along with the heaters. Its wood burning.

His family also own a little breakfast and lunch restaurant. Its called the Coffee Pot. It is the hot spot to stop at in town. It only seat 29 people. Everyone know that you eat and go, so everyone can get a chance. We ate breakfast there everyday. It was the best breakfasts I've had in a long time!!! This place was so cute too!!! The guy in the picture with Spencer and Danny is Spencer's Uncle Dan. Dan and his wife whos name I've blanked out on came up for thanksgiving too. they stayed at the others aunt B & B. they were really nice people. It was kinda funny the aunt was Spencers Moms sister and the two of them stayed at Spencer's Dad's B&B.

Thats the sign over the door. Its a really nicely done logo!

So we were there from Wednesday Night to Sunday afternoon, and we had a blast. It was a really nice and relaxing weekend. I'm really glad I got to go home with him, instead of staying at school!

Looks like fun! Cold, but fun. The Coffee Pot sounds great. That waterfall/swimming hole looks downright scary! Thanks for commenting on my blog, because I'd lost track of yours, and now I have it bookmarked again.
