Having fun in Vermont....

Took our afternoon boat ride. 
There has been fishing off the dock for a few days. Emily has caught one pumpkin seed and Aidan has caught a couple pumpkin seed and one perch. We released them back into the lake for them to grow bigger and catch again. Emily did have a little mishap... she was showing Grammy how she can cast and fell right off the end of the dock! Yes, that was the 60 degree day. Once we convinced her to stand up.... she would not put one foot down.... so we had Aidan walk out and help her walk back. She was just scared with no injuries. She is more careful casting and making sure she is not on the end now! It was only waist deep on her at the end of the dock.

They drove on the boat ride Monday.

Monday we hit Ben and Jerry's and Cold Hollow Cider Mill in Waterbury.

I had to snap a picture of this sign =)

Yesterday I went into work and my sister Terri came out and helped out with the kids along with my niece Sarah. They were all tired out last night with playing in the woods, water and being kids.

Today someone flew in for a visit. A mallard duck must have known the kids were here. They fed it some duck food.

I have made a little progress on this. It seems like every time I pull this out to stitch, I get summoned to put a worm on a hook (solved that by putting a lure on each pole!), take a fish off a hook, put the paddle boat into the water, etc.... Maybe I can turn this flower and add a middle then four peels tonight? 


  1. Wow!! Sounds like you all are having a wonderful visit!

  2. Sounds like a wonderful vacation. WE just got home from an 18 day road trip from Iowa to Prince Edward Island - I wish the distance had been shorter so we could have enjoyed the destination longer! Enjoy the rest of your stay in Vermont, with no more off-the-dock mishaps!!

  3. Looks like the weather is better and everyone is having fun. I know right where you were on Monday since I've been to Ben and Jerry's and to Cold Hollow Cider Mill. Enjoy!!! ~Jeanne

  4. Sounds like you all are having a wonderful time! Glad Emily wasn't hurt.

  5. Looks like a wonderful vacation... such big smiles on the little ones!
