Last Vacation Post I Promise...Fun in Vermont!

Yes, this is the very last vacation post of course until our next fun vacation, which hopefully won't be too long haha! This one is all about our fun times in Vermont, although we were there the shortest amount of time, it was alot of fun! We absolutely loved where we stayed while we were in Vermont, it was an old bed and breakfast, called The Old Stagecoach Inn, it was so different from what we normally do, so it was really fun! We did a few different tours which was also fun, enjoyed seeing some really beautiful nature areas in Vermont and had some really fun times together as our entire vacations was slowly winding down to a close! While we were in Vermont we were able to go to the Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Factory and see everything there, go on the ice cream tour and able to watch them while they made Cheesecake Brownie ice cream and taste a different flavor at the end of the tour. We also got to go on the Cabot Creamery Cheese Factory tour and able to taste all different kinds of cheeses and other specialty items, we even bought a few home that we really loved! We did alot of discovering of Vermont and saw that it was so much more of a dairy and agricultural state than either Maine or New Hampshire so the scenery and things to do there were alot different, but definitely still a fun visit!

Here is the sign outside of our bed & breakfast where we stayed in Vermont

Here is the cute, colorful clock outside of the Ben & Jerry's entrance

Here is the big green Ben & Jerry's Cowmobile that is outside of Ben & Jerry's

And here is the flavor graveyard in the back at Ben & Jerry's. This is where all the flavors that don't do well get taken to and every once in awhile they will resurrect a few of the flavors so that was fun to see which flavors people didn't like.

Here is a picture of the big dairy towers at the Cabot Creamery factory we went to.

And here is the Visitors Center at Cabot Creamery, so much delicious cheese to choose from!

Here is a picture of the front of our bed and breakfast, I LOVED that it was purple!

Here is a closer view of the front porch of the bed and breakfast in Vermont.

I thought the capital building in Vermont was just outstandingly beautiful, I just loved it. It is in Montpelier, Vermont and is surrounded by beautiful trees and other gorgeous landscaping and with the fall colors I just couldn't get enough of how pretty it was. It has this amazing gold top with this little statue of a man on the very top that looks like a steeple if you don't look real closely!

Sorry for the squinting look on my face, it was very sunny that day. But this was outside of Cabot Creamery, Jake made me pose in the cow model since I was SO excited about tasting all the delicious cheeses at Cabot!

And here we are as "Ben & Jerry" on the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough lid

Here I am kneeling next to a flavor that sounded good to me, anything Italian, especially cannolis I can never pass up, definitely the heritage, but too bad the holy cannoli flavor was buried in the flavor graveyard.

This is the beautiful view of the Quechee Gorge in Vermont, it was honestly breathtaking!

This was the rightside view of our bed and breakfast, I thought it had such a cool view with the tall red brick chimney against the tall purple house.
