We started our vacation with a visit to DC to see a photo exhibit. Meandered through looking at some of our favorites and took some time to goof.
|Me and my baby.|
From there we headed out of town for Wilderness with a little stop by Effie's for some ice cream.
We arrived at our cabin. The wildlife was up close and personal.
|Next time we are going with Cabin 6. |
|And the goofy behavior begins.|
|Our first wildlife visitor.|
|She was quiet the beggar. The neighbors brought nuts so she only visited with us once.|
|No internet- had to resort to good old fashion fun.|
We had a family of swans- mom, dad, and two babies. They would come for a visit daily.
|The babies where just a little smaller with lighter masks and greyish feathers.|
|Only had one climb on shore and hiss at me once. Mike saved me by leading it away.|
|They walked like their feet were totally foriegn to them. Stomping feet.|
We also had some visitors that were much smaller.
Visiting some of our favorite parts. Starting with the suspension bridge and some fishing.
|Hannah was the power behind our boat. Lucky for us there were no other boats out for her to run into. |
|She rowed for a hot second.|
|Hannah caught herself a few fish.|
Also enjoyed the pool- not a lot of pictures because we were all wet.
Then off to Virginia Beach for some 20th Anniversary reminiscing and beach time.
|Emilia's little nest.|
|Genevieve loved being in the water. The life gaurd needed to call her in at one point. She is a fish.|
|My spunky girl. |
|And the wildlife.|
|I think Mike could have stood there for hours.|
Then there were quiet moments.
|Got his full wilderness man on.|
|I can't remember who took this. Love it.|
And then we packed up to go home.
|The girls did a great job loading the car to head home. I think they were excited to get back to internet access.|
It was a wonderful week. It was a little hard coming home. Now we are gearing up for the first day of school. Kids are in bed. Alarm is set. Tomorrow is a new and wonderful day.
