We had a super busy weekend with a road trip to Vermont for the Covered Bridges Half Marathon. We made our way north through New Hampshire Friday evening stopping in Lebanon for dinner...
Dinner was very good and of course we saved room for dessert.
Someone enjoyed sharing the Spumoni Bomba with me!
We finally checked into the Killington Grand Resort Hotel a little after 9pm! I did a light workout Saturday morning at the fitness center and returned to the room to get the troops moving. It was just before 10am when we landed at Johnny Boy's Pancake House in nearby Rutland.
Despite the "yard sale chic" decor, the food was delicious. Possibly the best egg white, spinach, tomato and feta omelet I've ever had!
We hit the road and headed north to Middlebury, Vermont to see Middlebury College. This could possibly be the most beautiful campus that I've ever seen with a perfect blend of old and new architecture, artwork, a golf course and fabulous athletic facilities!
Did I mention the views?
We drove through UVM, but after Middlebury, no one was impressed. Although they do have an excellent Medical School and teaching hospital!Ben & Jerry's Factory!
Mr. PS and I visited 20 years ago this summer so it was fun to bring the kids back with us. We grabbed tickets for the short 20 minute tour and Mr. PS scored a sample smoothie from a trainee...Milk and Cookies. Ben & Jerry's creates 12 new flavors a year and retires 12 flavors each year as well.
Caramel Almond Brittle, made with an almond milk base. It was delicious!
Mr. PS tried Frozen Fruities which is a cereal milk base with crisp fruity cereal swirls. Riley had a Half Baked milkshake and Reagan tried Chocolate Therapy.
The Woodstock Inn sits in the center of Woodstock facing the town green. It's lovely, but sadly it couldn't accommodate our party of five for race weekend.
Preston's was excellent and hit the spot after a long day of sightseeing!
Sunday morning Mr. PS dropped me at the start of the Covered Bridges Half Marathon in Pomfret. I'll be back tomorrow with a full recap of the race.Killington's Beast Coaster (one of their many summer attractions).
