We started our trip in beautiful Ludlow, Vermont.
We had never been but it was exactly like I imagined.
Cute shops, organic farms, tons of skiers and sweet people.
Our cabin was nestled in the mountains about 2 miles from a paved road.
We literally were in the middle of nowhere.
We were having lots of fun with some good friends, when we just happened to look at the weather forecast...
up to 10 inches of snow was headed our way.
Oh, how we wanted to be snowed in!! But we knew we had to be back on Sunday so we made the hard decision of leaving early.
We were bummed.
Then we made a very spontaneous decision of heading to NYC.
We took a carriage ride around Central Park
Stopped at The Plaza to visit Eloise's home
Did a lot of walking
And the highlight of the day, for Anna, was a visit to the American Girl store.
Can I just say...oh. my. word. That was quite an experience!
That store has all a little girl could dream of including a hair salon for their dolls
with a 2.5 hour wait. What?!
And although our getaway looked a lot different than we had planned...
(and Vermont only ended up getting 3 inches of snow!!)
we were thankful we could share our love of NYC with our kids!
