A little getaway

I am so far behind on blogging that I’ve started a list of things to blog about! I have a few minutes right now so here is a quick one.

Last weekend Alan and I took a long overdue weekend getaway! Friday night we drove to Burlington for a sweet, grownup weekend to celebrate our anniversary. Did I even blog about that?! I’ve been slacking. We celebrated 16 years last week! That’s a long time! Not as long as the 36 that my parents celebrated though. :)

We had to pull over for this beautiful sunset! So many colors!

We used to take us-pictures everywhere we went. That was before we had cute kids to take pictures of instead. :)

This is the Winooski Dam… I think.

We got in really late so we had a fantastic dinner and the hotel bar and then passed out in bed, watching the TV shows that we wanted to watch instead of the usual Teen Titans Go! I think we watched Friends. :) Arguably about the same level of quality as TTG!

The next morning we took a long walk along Lake Champlain. It was a perfect day and the lake is just beautiful!

I’m so pretty. :)

Burlington is a great city and so pretty.

After our walk we went back to the hotel for showers, then headed up to the Church Street area. We had lunch at the Vermont Pub & Brewery, on the deck, overlooking a hopping farmers market in City Hall Park. After lunch we wandered around the market, then up a few blocks to wander around Church Street. We bought souvenirs for ourselves and others and checked out each restaurant as we passed, looking for a good dinner option.

Hahaha… oh, Vermont!

This t-shirt made us laugh on our anniversary trip. :)

We ended up back at the hotel for a quick rest, then off to the Vermont Comedy Club to see some stand-up comedy. It was so funny and so much fun! I’ve seen comedians before, but always in an auditorium, never (that I can remember) in a comedy club with food and drinks. We had a blast.

Posing with photos. I think we should have swapped sides. My Colbert impression needs work.

The next day we woke to this ugliness, which was just fine because it was time to head home anyway!

Not a beautiful day!

I’m so happy we had a beautiful night and an perfect day for wandering around the great city of Burlington. We both agreed we should go back again soon.
