Green Mountain Madness

We're back!!!  Today was a day of rest and laundry, you know how it is after vacation! 

The pictures from vacation are above for you to check out. 

Ben & Jerry's was AWESOME!  Everyone who works their is so happy!  The tour was fun and the tasting great!  The graveyard was cool!  Check out the Coffee Buzz Buzz flavor!  I wish they still had that one!  lol

The kids had a blast behind the timeshare place playing in the brook and looking for rocks.  The water was crystal clear and so pretty!

The President Calvin Coolidge Homestead and Gravesite was an excellent site!  They had a cheese factory started by the Presidents father, and baby animals!  So cute! 

We also went to a quarry and granite cutting facility.  The kids sandblasted their own individual designs on a granite tile!  You can see them above. 

One of the restaurants that we ate dinner at was made from a caboose!  It had the interior cupola of the caboose set up with tables.  You can see Fuzzy at the table, and thru the porthole!

The lake was gorgeous too.  Pumpkin fell into the lake off the boat launch!  Silly girl!  The kids loved getting their feet wet though!!

I know it is a lot of pictures... I hope you enjoy!  Too tired to do much more of an entry right now! 

be well,
Dawn

Dawn, enjoyed the pictures. The first one was spectacular. You had a lot of neat shots. A few of them would not load for me, probably my computer. Reminded me of a trip our family took over 65 years ago. Went up through NE some where and di historics spots. Thanks for bringing back that memory.
Looks like your kid had fun and enjoyed it. I hope they will fondly recall that trip years from now as I just did.
I have always enjoyed going to manufacturing or food processing plants/ Guess I will look around and do a few more. Herrs potato chips I know runs a tour. I did do a beer plant a few years ago. That was fun and tasty.
Get rested and have a nice summer with your kids. Bill

Thanks, Dawn, for the pictures.  It reminds me of why I really love Vermont.  If it weren't for the cold and snow, I think it would have been a great retirement place.

Good old Ben and Jerry's  - I still have the t-shirt I bought many years ago.  They didn't have the flavor graveyard when we toured.  I always liked "Rainforest Crunch!."

Enjoy the rest of the summer with the kids!

Oh poor Pumpkin, she got more than her feet wet!!  I thought the graveyard was cool - I got upset when I saw cookie dough tombstone but then I saw yogurt so I didn't panic!  Great pics, you all look like you are having a great time.  The caboose is cool, I bet that was neat.
