Lake Champlain Trip


Well, the party is over! The month of vacations is complete, its back to the old grind.  We had a fantastic week in Burlington VT with family and friends.  We’ve rented a house there for the past few years and it’s always a great time that I look forward to all year.


The week is full of kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming, walking & relaxing on the porch reading.  It’s the perfect vacation to decompress, relax and enjoy good company.


We all had a great time but there is someone who definitely beat us all out on the fun-o-meter.  Mr. Oto Van Wigglesworth.  He is OBSESSED with swimming and having a house on the lake is his ultimate dream.  I’m pretty sure he goes to sleep every night dreaming of swimming and wakes up every morning thinking about when we’ll allow him to go back out.  Needless to say he was pretty exhausted by the time we came home.


The greatest part about renting a house on vacation is the ability to cook your own meals and keep things a little healthier.  I didn’t remember to take pics of every meal but I snapped a few.  This night we had grilled chicken shawarma with tzatziki sauce along with a farro vegetable salad and a watermelon, blueberry & feta salad.


My dad made some amazing fall-off-the-bone ribs one night and we served it with a mint cucumber salad, cole slaw & roasted potatoes.


There were lots of Klondike bars consumed…





And lots of sunsets enjoyed…


OH, and I picked 5 pounds of blueberries, hopefully I can make something for you guys before I eat all of them 🙂

Hope you all had a fantastic week as well!
