Road Trip to Vermont

Being relocated to Boston does have it's perks...for one, we get to see what beautiful New England has to offer.  I told Todd that while he is out here, we ARE traveling and seeing as much as we can.  Last summer we toured the city of Boston, walked the cliff walks of Road Island and drove around parts of southern Maine.  This past week, all three of us went on a road trip to Vermont, the Green Mountain State. 

Our first stop was Ben and Jerry's.  We went on a tour of the factory and ate a sample of the new flavor Late Night Snack (vanilla ice cream with fudge covered potato chip cluster and salty caramel swirl)...delicious!  Then we bought our own overpriced priced cream.  As you can tell, my little friend wanted some.

We stayed the night in Waterbury and the next morning we drove south to Killington.  With Allie strapped in the Bjorn, we boarded the gondola to get to the top of one of Vermont's tallest mountains.  Todd tried not to look down, or out the window for that matter...he isn't a big fan of heights.  Allie liked the gondola, but didn't like being contained in the Bjorn.  When we got to the top there were gorgeous views of the Vermont and the surrounding FOUR states.  I decided to wear my flip flops (it is summer) to the top not thinking that I would be hiking.  With Allie strapped to the front of me, I had a hard time keeping my balance on the uneven ground.  We didn't walk on too many trails.  I tried to give Allie and the Bjorn to Todd, but he wasn't having that.  For some reason he thinks the Bjorn is very manly.

This was Allie's first road trip and first time staying in a hotel.  We set up her pack-n-play in the corner and she slept all night long both nights.  We brought a handful of toys for her to play with when we had some down time.  We made sure to not lay her on the bedspread or the carpet...gross.  We also brought the Bumbo and the tray for her to eat in.  Overall, our road trip was a success.
