A few weeks ago right before school started, we all headed to Plymouth, Ma as part of our Christmas gift (from last year) from my parents. My parents started a few years ago, purchasing a family trip instead of loads of gifts during Christmas. We are all for that around here! In the past, they have taken my family along with my brother’s family to Disney, Cape Cod, Lake Winnipesaukee and this year, Plymouth, Massachusetts. My grandparents stayed  home and held down the fort. They are home bodies and don’t enjoy traveling that much. Although, I think they may have liked this place.  They can handle a day maybe two of travel and then they want to kill each other and everyone else around them! ha

The kitchen was gorgeous and the architectural detail throughout the entire home was beautiful. I should have brought my good camera, I would have loved to have taken more pictures of the home. My cell phone pictures are not the best quality but you’ll get the idea of the home. Unfortunately, the bedroom photographs were to dark to share but they were amazing.

One of the nights we dined at RIO, a Brazilian Steakhouse. The amount of food was insane! You need to visit one of these restaurants if you ever have the chance. The food is carved right at your table and by the 7th course, I couldn’t eat another bite.

The kids were fascinated with the carving of the food.

Near the boat ramp in the center of town, there is a path of rocks that you can walk all the way out to the end. It took us about an hour and I won’t lie, I was a little nervous. Not my cup of tea but the kids loved it!

We did spend a lot time at the house playing games, swimming and enjoying the peace and serenity. The home had a large movie room that was perfect for the kids.

 Plymouth marks great prominence in American history as it is where the site of the colony that was founded in 1620 by the Pilgrims who arrived on the famous ship, the Mayflower. Plymouth is where New England was established. I learned a lot about my heritage on this trip as my ancestors (on my mom’s side) were passengers on the Mayflower. John and Priscilla Alden are somewhere in my family tree and I am on a mission to find out where. I started while we were on vacation researching and ended up back 5 generations and hit a road block, it will be fun to see where it ends up!

PS. Love this home and want to rent it? You can find it here, Homeaway.com property id is #289016. I was not paid to write this review either, we just REALLY like this place 😉
