Vermont was awesome. The kids did great in the car both on the way up and on the way back. They napped for the first half of the trip each way. Once they woke up, we stopped at the next rest stop, went to the bathroom/got clean diapers, had a snack/coffee, and then continued on. I was able to toss toys back fairly effectively and fussing was minimal.
Spending time with my friends was fantastic. They took such good care of us. The twins played in a sandbox for the first time, ate waffles and strawberry shortcake, slept long and hard both at night at at naps, got pulled around in a wagon, and practiced their walking. I drank a lot of wine after hours and basked in the comfort of good friends. It's nice to know that the kids travel so well (at least for now) and having our first solo trip behind us makes me more likely to take them up there (or on other such trips) again soon.
I'll post pictures once I can download them from my camera—battery's currently dead.
