Shelburne Farms

The kids missed school so we could go to Vermont to celebrate all of our birthdays. On Jane's birthday we went to Shelburne Farms. It was such a fun and beautiful place!

We started out in the gift shop and sampled different types of their cheddar cheese. What a great way to start our visit!

We walked to the farmyard about 10 minutes away.

Cheese making!

The kids spent a LONG time grinding cornmeal. They had so much fun! What's ironic is we used to have a grain grinder like that but we don't anymore.

We stopped at the bakery for a croissant.

We were allowed to go in with the chickens. That was probably their favorite part!

Jane, Malcolm and I milked a cow. Jane and I thought it was fun but Malcolm was a little creeped out.

Jane was in charge of keeping the eggs safe on the way back to the gift shop.
