Hey guys! So this past weekend my brother and I were invited to spend the weekend at our friends house in Vermont! We are actually going next week with my mom, too, so I will call this post Vermont: Trip #1. Here are some pictures (all iPhone) from our awesome time there!
The ride there was so beautiful! There were mountains pretty much everywhere I looked.
No wonder they call it the ‘Green Mountain State!’ 🙂
My first meal there was pizza and garlic knots. They were probably the best garlic knots I have ever had! (The restaurant was called ‘PieCasso Pizza,’ by the way!)
After we ate dinner, we got some dessert at the Von Trapp Bakery, which is right down the road from the Trapp Family Lodge. I got a magic bar and it was DELISH!!! The second pic is the view from where we sat and ate. This photo is nothing compared to it in real life!
The next day, we went to the Ben and Jerry’s factory. I LOVE Ben and Jerry’s ice cream, and I had never actually been to the factory, so it was so much fun! We took the factory tour, but unfortunately you couldn’t take pictures 😦 I did take some of other things there, though!!
On the factory tour, you get to sample a flavor! The flavor of that day was a new one called Save Our Swirled. It’s raspberry ice cream with raspberries and chocolate covered waffle cone I believe. I don’t think this one is out in stores yet, but when it is I will totally be getting it! Oh and the second pic is of the outside of the factory! Super cool!
After that, we went to the Stowe Mercantile General Store. It was awesome! I love little stores like this and I did not want to leave!
I ended up getting maple candy. SO YUMMY!! I love maple candy and since it was from VT, I think it tasted even better. 🙂 Oh, and there were so many adorable salt and pepper shakers!
Oh the third and final day, we went to the lake which was tons of fun. We were only there for about an hour, because we had to leave in the afternoon.
All in all, this trip was so much fun, and I can’t wait to go again next week! Stay tuned for the next VT post, and for more back to school posts, too!
What’s your favorite Ben and Jerry’s flavor?
