with me being gone in Hawaii and Steve leaving for Costa Rica shortly after I got home, we needed some quality family time
enter: day trip to Newfane, Vermont.
the trip would've been worth it if only for the scenic drive and the random ice cream shop we stopped at in New Hampshire. (the balck raspberry ice cream was so stinkin' good we stopped on our way back too!)
but I digress.
It was a cute little town with old victorian homes, lots of maple syrup and greenery for days
sometimes this small town girl just needs a slower pace.
ugh I need another scoop like five minutes ago!
that strawberry rhubarb jam is a vision and I've yet to try the syrup but it's got to be good if it's from Vermont right?
Steve let me stroll around one of the local nurseries for a bit because I'm a nerd like that and I swear if I had a proper garden I would've bought all of their English tea roses. They were gorgeous!
we had a surprisingly good lunch at a local dive and Clara REALLY enjoyed the lemons from our water. Funny girl.
Our last stop was at the river that runs alongside town. There were like a million cars parked on the side of the road so we figured it was a good sign. We figured correctly. It was beautiful. We waded in for a while, skipped rocks and cooled off from the day. The perfect goodbye to Vermont.
Hey, there's a baby hiding behind that tree!
long live the weekends!!!
