Did I mention that we love having Jared and Susan here? And our cute little nephew Jackson? We went up to Salem to see the "sights"...although the sights mostly consisted of a harbor and a cemetery. We went to a cute little candy store where we bought yummy clove and root beer flavored candy and also saw a re-enactment of the Salem witch trials.

"The Salem witch trials occurred in colonial Massachusetts between 1692 and 1693. More than 200 people were accused of practicing witchcraft—the Devil's magic—and 20 were executed. Eventually, the colony admitted the trials were a mistake and compensated the families of those convicted. Since then, the story of the trials has become synonymous with paranoia and injustice, and it continues to beguile the popular imagination more than 300 years later." Read more here.

Hey, I have pictures of that witch and the pirate from when I was there! Oh, those were fun memories. I can't believe it's been a whole year.

Whoa!! Jackson is so blond and so big. I haven't seen him for a long time. What a cutie.

The clove candy you sent me was so delish!! They didn't last very long and I didn't share either.

I don't think Wade is mean enough to be a pirate.
