VT Adventure

The Boy and I went on a two-day adventure in Vermont this weekend:  visiting with Aunt Susie, spending the birthday gift card burning a hole in his pocket, playing the Harry Potter Hogwarts Lego game, and going to visit the Fairbanks Museum and Planetarium in St. Johnsbury. 

I love the juxtaposition of old-fashioned "cabinet of curiosities" and new-fangled electronic/computerized exhibits and hands-on learning stations.  Makes this museum-nerd's heart go a-pitter-pat.

Oh, and we also braved gale-force winds (a bit of a hyperbole, I just learned at the museum --  "gale" is an actual strength on the wind scale. Who knew?) ...  where was I?  oh, yes, we made a detour into crazy downtown Montpelier to run up the steps to the statehouse.

Do we know how to party or what?
