We just returned from a 7 day road trip to Vermont with Grandpa Ray’s camper in tow. Good times were had by all. We stayed a few days at Jeremy and Erin’s place in Wallingford, where we caught up on the last year of happenings and also went for a dip in a local swimming hole. Then we drove 2 hours north to Little River State Park near Waterbury, where we camped for 3 nights on a nice lake with Erin, Jeremy, Abbott, Eleanor, Susan (Erin’s sister in-law), and her kids Louise and Levi. The kids were fast friends and enjoyed having the run of the place. We spent our time swimming in the lake, mountain biking, fishing, and eating s’mores. One afternoon we drove to Stowe and had lunch at the Von Trappe family brewery (from The Sound of Music) and toured the Ben and Jerry’s ice cream factory. After all that fun we divided our drive home over two days, and except for a small muffler issue, made it home in one piece.
Family camping was a little more work than staying at a resort, but man the kids had a great time!
