Hi! I'm Christine. Welcome to New England Momma! I am so happy you found your way here. I live in Massachusetts, which is one of the six states that make up New England. In my opinion, Massachusetts is perfectly placed making travel easy around New England.
I am a 50-something mom, that loves making lists, planning fun trips and family activities. Loves dogs, not cats. I enjoy driving around in my car just so I can sing at the top of my lungs. I love dancing when no one is watching and I keep a hundred and five things in my purse at all times - seriously. I feel you never know when you may need something!
I love the internet, my electronics, research and learning. Finding new hacks and different ways to do things is who I am. I like Lifetime Christmas movies, reality shows and I love to laugh out loud - really loud. In fact, I've been told I have a big laugh and that I sneeze way too many times without stopping. My record is 14.
I love writing about Massachusetts and road trips. And if I can do it and save a buck or two, I'm all over that. I mean, who doesn't love to save a few dollars?
I love cooking but I don't always measure things out. I often cook off the cuff and mom's meatloaf could be slightly different every time I make it.
On NewEnglandMomma, you will find ideas to go outdoors and explore Massachusetts and surrounding areas. Most day trip ideas are geared towards kids ages 8 and up. There are also activities to keep busy while in the car, hiking tips and day trips for every season!
My kids want to stay in
The truth of the matter is, I can't always get my kids outside doing the things I know they will love as well! But here's the thing, I want my kids to learn to love the outside. We love our electronics, but getting outdoors and rediscover again what they love about the outdoors.
When they were younger, it was much easier to hand them a scavenger hunt or tell them we're going on a fun adventure! And they would be super excited about it.
I get it. I love my electronics too!
BUT... When it's family time or an outing together, it's time to put the electronics away and get back into life. And they do.
Sometimes grudgingly, but they do.
