The calendar is reminding me that today is the first day of spring! It's also our grandson Alex's thirteenth birthday! How can that possibly be? Sometimes I feel like time is passing so quickly!
The boys always decorate their parties with streamers and balloons. Children teach wonderful lessons about how to live a happy life. I try to pay attention to their lessons.
This past week was our grandson Samuel's spring break. We all decided to take the train up to New England to visit Samuel's parents. Here are a few photos from our visit.
If you love to bake as I do, no trip to Vermont is complete without visiting King Arthur Flour.
King Arthur Flour was founded in 1790 and has over 225 years of history in flour and baking education. You can find the very best in equipment baking needs.
Samuel always enjoys going to the Montshire Museum of Science. We all enjoyed the morning viewing the current exhibits.
We also visited Simon Pearce. Simon Pearce is well known for its beautiful blown glass tableware. Mr. Pearce came to America from Kilkenny, Ireland to build his business.
We were able to view the glassblowing in process. Simon Pearce likens this process to a ballet. I couldn't agree more.

Of course the best part of our trip was being with loved ones that we miss.
