The Weekend in Concord New Hampshire
We arrived on Friday after many in the area were still recovering from several days without power. In fact the hotel was sold out because many residents flocked to the local hotels to try and stay warm and comfortable until their power returned. But it certainly is beautiful isn’t it?
Our stay at the Courtyard Marriott was a little surprising for the kids. We have stayed at several hotels and always stick with inexpensive rooms but they have ranged from rooms with a loft with two bunk beds down to this. It was a tiny tiny room with a king size bed and pull out couch. More than enough for our needs but the kids were not happy with how small it was and how they didn’t have their own room. But it did have a pool and hot tub – their dissatisfaction was quickly forgotten.
We weren’t staying in Concord for Concord – it was really because we were headed to Louden. But we couldn’t resist the urge to see what was “downtown” on our way out of t0wn. Of course the capitol building was there and since Sephora just went on a field trip to the capitol building in CT – we had to stop and take some photos. It was closed so we could only check out the exterior but that was still cool.

The Freedom Bell
In grateful tribute to the men and women of this city who served our country to preserve the freedoms of humanity
And before we leave Concord it was absolutely essential to climb a two story high mound of snow.
