Hello, green mountains.
We have been treated so nicely by the Smuggler's folks. We arrived late last night and settled into the beautiful condo that is probably the nicest place we've ever vacationed. Reed said: "This place is bijantic!" and then "This is the kitchen I've always wanted!"
I spent the morning with the other bloggers hearing some really informative and energetic speakers. They gave me many cups of coffee and a yummy breakfast. They gave me Lake Champlain chocolates. They gave me info on how to maximize my blogging potential, and then sent me on my way for a weekend of fun.
Smuggs passes around our necks, we set out to explore.
We waited out the brief thunder storm from the hot tub on our front porch. Was that safe?
I packed all of our own food so we could just eat in the condo. Both kids silently cleaned their plates and asked for more. They took a bubbly bath in the jacuzzi in our bathroom, and we tucked them into bed with a movie.
There's a Sox game calling my name from a TV that is 4 times bigger than ours at home, and a husband with a cold beer on the couch.
In conclusion, we are having a wonderful time.
Thank you to the kind folks at People Making Good and Smuggs for hosting the blogger weekend, and thank you to all of you for reading One Mom in Maine.
Are you with me on facebook and twitter yet? Because those things were kind of mentioned a few times this morning.
p.s. I thought Reed was asleep, but he just came out of his room to say: "Mommy? I love Vermont."
