  • It’s not really beach weather on Cape Cod yet but that didn’t stop us. We went in jeans and sweatshirts and the kids ended up running around in their undies. It was so windy I couldn’t keep my hat on my head!

  • This little one just graduated preschool! How did this happen??? So proud of him 👨‍🎓🎈
  • Such a beautiful day!!! The kids were champs through a one hour hike. Possibly because it ended with an ice cream and a swim 🍦. One of the best things about living in Massachusetts is that we are surrounded by beautiful hiking trails and historic areas. Today we explored Walden Pond and followed the trail out to where Thoreau’s cabin in the woods once was. Only the foundation remains, but the beautiful area that inspired most of his writing remains untouched. #massachusetts #hike #explore #waldenpond #thoreau #henrydavidthoreau #concord #familytravel #travelwithkids #optoutside #getoutside #getoutandexplore
  • Baby girl meets baby boy. His mama was pregnant when she was rescued just in time. The foal loved chasing the kids around his coral. He’s just the sweetest thing. #rescue #animalrescue #horse #horselover #horserescue #rescuehorse #rescuehorsesofinstagram #animalrescue #love #family

  • The boy’s favorite activity while driving through the Mad River Valley was glassblowing at Salt and Sand Studios. Their eyes lit up when they heard that they would be using molten glass and blow torches. Spencer was so patient with them and explained each step. It was like a science lesson and an art lesson all wrapped up in one. They made a paper weight that looks like a tiny galaxy with all of the colors swirled in. We also made a Christmas ornament which will always remind us of our amazing time in Vermont. #vermont #vermontlife #art #madrivervalley #glassblowing #glassblowingstudio #greenmountains #visitvt #welovevermont #explore #wanderlust #create #familytravel #travelwithkids #newengland #vt
  • One of our favorite activities at the Moose Meadow Lodge & Treehouse was hiking up to the Sky Loft. It took about a half hour. It was quite steep and muddy but the view were so worth it. The boys begged us to let them sleep in the glassed in gazebo at the top. #vermont #familytravel #optoutside #getoutside #explore #hike #wander #greenmountains #greenmountainstate #thisisvt #welovevermont #visitvt #visitvermont #nature #newengland
