Visit from Vermont

Dad and Kathy came to visit at the beginning of May and we had a great time! The weather here was much better than their weather at home 🙂

We took full advantage of the warm temperatures and went out to Ticonderoga Farm for some spring fun.

We bounced a lot on the ‘giant pillow.’

Kerry planned a trip to Meadowlark Botanical Gardens for their holiday lights and it was awesome! Holiday lights, 60 degree weather and no crowds was the perfect way to spend a Monday evening. Miss H was completely enthralled with the lights (and so were the adults).

She liked dancing in the flowers.

She climbed on the sleigh.

She liked the field of strawberries.
