Summer in Vermont is absolutely amazing. The weather is gorgeous, everything is green, and the outside beckons.
Our little town of Winooski holds an open-air concert in Rotary Park every Wednesday (Winooski Wednesdays, obviously) and we walked over most weeks after dinner to enjoy it.
Independence Day 2019 was celebrated with our new local friends, Ryan, Claudia, and their son, Andrew. They welcomed us to their home and we got to spend the day playing in the pool and grilling up some yummy food.
As Ellie gets older, James seems to enjoy introducing her to things that he loves– like listening to music on his phone.
Our family loves to hike and now we have a whole new state of trails to explore. This particular hike was in Little River State Park, which is not too far away and offered some great scenery.
Here in Vermont, we have added family bike rides into our weekend mix and one of our favorites is the Burlington Bike Path that runs along Lake Champlain for a bit.
Our epic bike ride earned us some tasty beverages with a stop at Citizen Cider.
With a noticeable lack of alligators (I’m looking at you, Florida), swimming in lakes and ponds in Vermont is a fantastic activity for summer fun. We spent a lovely afternoon hanging out in Blueberry Lake.
