Road Trip - Day 2 - Vermont to New Hampshire

Today, we woke up in Vermont and got packed up.  We took a few photos at the little lake at the hotel as it was so pretty and we headed to Dunkin Donuts for breakfast. 

Then it was time to get back in the car.  The kids were super excited.

Owen loves to stand in his car seat, unfortunately he does not love to sit and be buckled in his carseat!

While driving in Vermont, I couldn't help noticing the signs of fall -- I was not ready to see leaves already changing color.  Hopefully that stays up north for a while longer!!!!

Then we arrived in Cabot, VT to tour the Cabot Cheese Factory. 

I think factories are so cool.  I could tour them everyday.  I loved watching how they made cheese.

And they had every kind of cheese, yogurt, dip, butter, etc. . . out for you to sample. Yummy!! I even bought some super sharp cheddar that was so delicious!!!

We all enjoyed a yummy yogurt before getting back in the car to drive.

And we arrived fairly quickly in NEW HAMPSHIRE

We stayed in this cute little motel that was right on the shores of squam lake. They had their own private shore front and paddle boats and canoes (although we never tried out the canoes!)

Nana and Trent out in the paddle boat.

Me and the kids swimming and jumping off this floating dock.  It was a lot of fun and the lake was gorgeous and crystal clear, but for me -- the texan -- it was a little chilly!

Owen entertained himself on the shore searching for rocks to put in his mouth!

Nana was cold.  Surprise, surprise!

Owen has his eye on a rock!

He has the cutest little pincers trying to find his rocks!

Adam is always looking out for Owen.  Notice Owen's butt tracks behind him.  He slid and scooted down a big hill trying to get to the water!

Adam just loved playing in the sand!  He was coated in it!

The 2 boys were so coated in sand that I didn't want them to even come into the hotel room so we improvised and made a quick outdoor bath for them!!!
