Spring Break in Stratton, VT

March 21, 2013

In the weeks leading up to Spring Break, I think Jordan and I had about 30 conversations that started and ended the same…

It would start with one of us asking the other what we should do for Spring Break. Then we would talk about nothing for a good 10 minutes, and then we would end with no plans, no solution, and no decisions. We tossed around ideas of going back home for a week, or going somewhere warm, but not only would the ol bank account hate such a thing, we thought it would be fun to take advantage of being waaaaaay up here in Boston and stick around this area.

Luckily we had some sweet friends from Jordan’s sections who felt the same way! So we packed up and headed to Stratton, VT for three days. Speaking of packing up… I’m a little bit afraid of the day we have multiple children… I mean, our car was PACKED. I guess we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it, huh?

Before I overload you with pictures from our trip, I wanted to share this cuteness from Muckykids Art Studio. Tara invited Cooper and I to join her and Jackson for a drop in class where the kiddos could go from station to station and paint/draw/glue/get messy. It was so fun! Notice how our little artists chose the wall to paint on, instead of the paper. :)

There was a little cardboard house with buckets of red paint and paint brushes. Coop went to town and was loving it… I turned around for 5 seconds and there Coop was… Painting the front glass door BRIGHT RED. Oh my. Luckily, the peeps at Muckykids are used to messes, and they were basically cleaning it up before he even started adding his flair to their door. Oopsies.

Our first night there, we had dinner with the Donovans (who were staying in a condo nearby). When we got back to our condo, we put the boys in their pjs… unplanned matching?! SO FUN!

The next morning, we all got bundled up and headed to the golf course to go sledding. And how cute is Jackson?!?!

It was my first time to ever go sledding (unless you count that time in college where we slid… aka pushed each other… down a slight incline on a trashcan lid)

The dads went skiing the next day, and it snowed over a foot. So, needless to say, we had a lot of time to play inside.

Why is bathtime oh so cute?? These little dudes were splashing up a storm… which is normally a no-no, but it was just a little too adorable to stop.

I’m pretty sure Jordan and Cooper were equal amounts of giddy in these pictures… Jordan got to GRILL! And Coop made very successful bubbles in the bathtub (not with his mouth, if ya know what I mean).
