Trip to Vermont!

Finally sitting down to write about our trip to Vermont! Earlier this month we traveled to Vermont to visit my dad. It was a nice get away from the routine we'd been falling into. When we first arrived we checked out a house dad was listing and helped take pictures. It was a plain house with the most spectacular view! It was right off of the (now frozen) Lake Champlain! Dad finally convinced us to go out on the ice which was "at least a foot thick!" In the end I'm really glad I went out there!

In our visit we also spent time in downtown Burlington and traveled to Stowe, a local ski town. We checked out a lot of the little stores in town (much to Rusty's delight...!). I even convinced Rusty to eat at a local diner called Bee's Knees who served the best burgers we'd ever eaten! Everything there is organic and fresh. The restaurant used produce from the local farms in their dishes. Other than that we spent a lot of time relaxing! After a rainfall mid-trip we had a few inches of snow to wake up to the morning of our departure! As always, our trip was great!!

Other than that, not much has been going on with us. Layla is a challenge and a joy at the same time! She is a very high energy dog that requires lots of exercise, more than most I'm pretty sure! But I never knew how nice it would be to have someone waiting for you when you come home (besides a wonderful husband : )! She is getting better with her training and has really turned into quite the swimmer! She goes crazy for the tennis balls at the dog park and would run for hours if we let her!

We are eagerly awaiting our next May we are leaving for our long-awaited trip to Mexico! Can't wait!
