The Vermonsters

My wife Hayley, her mom Karen, Hillary, Mike, Tess, Ryan and the goobers took an excellent adventure to Vermont for 4 days. This was my first time, and for some reason I didn’t anticipate the beauty. We booked a spectacular, cabin style home to rent, and made a fire each night. We were all here to celebrate Karen’s 60th birthday and everyone in the general 60 mile vicinity of this area would soon know it was her birthday as well. Hayley selected, printed and displayed over 150 Golden Girls images from over the years, as well as over 200 photos of Karen all around the house, in every room.

There was a private swimming hole up the hill. It was definitely too cold for me to venture in, but most of the family gave it a shot. Some of my favorite shots from this trip are of Karen soaring into the pond. ¬†We did a lot over these few days. Hayley and I took the kids to a science museum on a rainy day to see their butterfly farm. We went to the Ben & Jerry’s factory and took the tour. We also explored their graveyard of flavors, the ones who didn’t make it. We visited a practically deserted ski resort on Sugarbush, where Hayley, Hillary and myself partially climbed a mountain. And Karen, Ryan and Mike actually climbed a mountain. The three scaredy cats of the group (Hillary, myself and Wyatt) rode the zipline!

Each night we made smores and lit sparklers, and one special evening Karen prepared lobsters and we had cupcakes to celebrate her birthday. Wyatt was obsessed with the air hockey game in the basement. Hadley’s sass was the main theme. And there was no shortage of rainbows.
