An R & R Rebus

(Do you know what a rebus is?  It’s a piece of writing where some words are represented by pictures.  They were my favorite part of the Friend growing up.  Yours,too?  Well, here’s the post for you:)

1  are going on a trip WITHOUT

29 !!!

Minnetonka Cave  is coming to stay with them for the whole week.  Isn’t Minnetonka Cave a saint?

 

We are  going to to see NewEnglandFall .

Our trip starts in Connecticut to see Ryan’s sisterPicture 121 (and Carter and Jake, too).  Then we are going to Boston, to walk thefreedom-trail and eat LOTS of food (because in my solicitation of advice for Boston, mostly people just talked about the food.)  I get to meet

(blog here) for dinner!  Then we are going to New%20York%20City.  My cousin the little family lives there.  The thing I’m most excited about is this: Wicked , on Broadway!  After New%20York%20City, we are driving to Amish country.  (We’ll be in a rental car, not a horse and buggy.)  That night we’re being hosted by (see her blog here.)  Then back to CT, to hang out a little more withPicture 121.

Did I mention it’s just 49

All by our little lonesome?

Excited, much?

There is so much to do there of course and your favorite will probably be WICKED!!! HAVE SO MUCH FUN!!!

Say 'hi' to Brookey-dookey from Sarahbarah! Sounds like a great trip!:)

Jacki said...

You even used the same pictures for the same words. You're good, real good!

Brooks and I have been wanting to go up to Boston/CT/that horse and buggy place, so make sure to give us every detail/recommendation so it will make our planning easier. Thanks.

Lauren in GA said...

Jessica, that is the greatest Rebus I have ever read! (I loved reading them in The Friend, too.)

Have such a fabulous time!!!!!!!!!

I am excited to share the east coast with you!! Like I told Celia when she was in D.C....I am sure I will feel your presence in the same time zone.

Clever post. I love the pictures.

Jeanelle said...

I can't decide what I'm more excited about -- Wicked or hanging out with Gabi...hope you have a fantastic time away!

GWACK said...

What a fun trip you guys will have! I saw the pictures on Betsy's blog from CT, at Brooke's, and was in awe! So beautiful! Tell her, Kari says hi, as well as Sarahbarah. :)

zeeny said...

How fun!! You will be so close to us...yet so far away!! Fall is quickly leaving us but we are farther north than where you are going. You have to get canoli from Mike's in the Northend in Boston...we also like an italian restaurant there if you want to know I can get the name for you. I am sure all of them are good!! Boston is my favorite big city!! Have so much fun without the kids!

zeeny said...

Oh, and Lancaster is the most beautiful place ever. I just want to go hang out with the Amish, but I don't think they would be up for that!
