A truck, uncle Pete, & the kids

Stowe, VT

We took our annual trip to the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, VT with Grandma DeRogatis. We visited all of our favorite spots including the Ben & Jerry's factory, Burlington, the Cider Mill, the Lake Champlain chocolate factory and the shops in downtown Stowe. This year Emma made a bear "Pearl" at the Vermont Teddy Bear Factory. Emma and Joe loved the renovated fitness center, especially the pool. Grandma & Emma had tea at the Lodge and we all enjoyed lots of time playing outdoors.

Kresge Art Museum

Today Emma & I went to the Kresge Art Museum on the MSU campus to watch a Tibetan monk create a sand mandala. We were not allowed to take photos of the mandala so Emma found a ceramic art chair that is available for sitting for a photo of herself. This photo is titled "Emma sits in a ceramic chair at the art museum."
