Vermont Weekend

Sept Vermont-15

We had a long weekend this past weekend and we spent it in Vermont, which is GORGEOUS this time of year! :)

Andrew talked his grandmother into buying him a ring pop. And since she was buying one, she also picked up 3 “emergency back-up ring pops”. You know. In case of a ring-pop emergency. :)

We love trips to Vermont.

On this trip we took a ski lift up a mountain at the local ski resort to check out the fall foliage. Dave and I went with Andrew…

….who said hello to all of the other lift riders we passed. :) My mom and Isaac were too spooked by the lift to join us. So, they waited for us at the base of the mountain.

The view was gorgeous.

Then we drove up to the look out and played on abandoned ski lifts and enjoyed the view.

Back at the house we spent a lot of time playing the yard. My parents have this game we call “Zim Zam”. It’s like a tether ball version of tennis and we love it!





The boys are actually not-so-great at this game. They get hit by the ball constantly, which luckily, everyone finds hilarious. Isaac kept stopping the game, stepping in the middle and saying “this is the end of the game”, and declaring a winner (usually me!). Andrew tried incorporating different obstacles and a hard-to-follow point system. My mom and I just hit the ball and schooled those boys in sportsmanship and hand-eye-coordination! :)

It was a good weekend. :)

About robyn

I stopped teaching Kindergarten in 2005 to become the mom of two crazy boys here in Brooklyn. At first I thought being a stay at home mom meant that I needed to pour all my time and energy directly into my sons, but I realized somewhere along the way that being a rockstar mom meant not only taking good care of my boys, but also taking good care of myself. And taking good care of myself means pursuing something creative...just about everyday. I started Made In Brooklyn to motivate myself in my creative goals as well as share my work with others and perhaps inspire them in their own creative journeys.
