Just what we needed

The past few weeks have been pretty crazy and overwhelming for all of us.  Paul started a new job, the kids had numerous activities, and I have been in the midst of trying to finish up the semester as a part-time instructor, student, and full-time employee.  So, in an attempt to get some much needed family time before things get even crazier, we planned a quick weekend getaway.  We booked a suite in a hotel in Burlington, VT, which is only an hour away and spent the weekend doing fun family stuff. 

We spent a chunk of time at Pizza Putt.  It's an indoor family fun center that is similar to Chuck E. Cheese but even cooler.  The kids were in heaven!


We went to ECHO Science Center and played with all of the cool hands-on activities and the Grossology exhibit.



We went shopping along Church Street and enjoyed ice cream cones at Ben and Jerry's.  And, we spent quality time in the hotel enjoying each other's company, playing games, swimming, watching TV and just hanging out.  After two days, we returned home refreshed, rejuvenated and reconnected.  It was exactly what we needed to recover from the past few weeks and make it through the next few.  Sometimes, you don't need to go very far to have a great vacation!
