The last leg of our trip took us through New Hampshire, Vermont, and New York. We were going to go hiking one more morning in Maine, but rain moving in ruined that plan, so we had to find something to do indoors. We decided to go a bit out of our way to see the Ben & Jerry's factory in Vermont.
The home of Mom & Dad's favorite ice cream!
We weren't allowed to take pictures of the factory floor.
After sitting in the car in the rain all day, Essie is not sure if she likes this tour or not...
But then comes the free ice cream samples!
I think Vermont should pay us for this publicity photo.
The next day we went to visit Amy's aunt (her dad's sister) who has a farm in New Hampshire.

Next it was on to upstate New York for a little family reunion with Amy's mom's side of the family.

A little pool time - while temps were in the 60's in Maine, the thermometer hit 100 in New York.

And after an 11.5-hour drive home, our family vacation was over. Over 11 days and 2600 miles we spent time in the following states: Kentucky, West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Pennsylvania. What a trip!
