Shenandoah National Park

Hello there, friends! This is a somewhat late post about my adventures exploring about Shenandoah National Park two weeks ago with my love and our puppy, Baxley (you can cross that off of my summer to-do list now). Every year, Scott and I always make a point to go camping since we moved to Virginia two years ago. This past trip we went on was more laid back. Normally, we like to go on several major hikes to view the waterfalls throughout the park, but we just decided to keep it cool and relax a bit more. It was wonderful.

Although the mountains are amazing, they still do not compare to a week up in northern  Michigan at the lake. ;) 

During this hot weekend we have planned ahead, I wish for you all to keep cool and stay plenty hydrated. Popsicles might already be sold out, so you better stock up now!

Summer Festivities

Hi there! Where did the time go? Summer creeped up on me so fast that I have barely made any time (or effort) to post on here. Life is good though, and I cannot complain. :) Here are some things I've already accomplished and some things to look forward to during the next three months of sunshine and greatness...
  >> Camping in Shenandoah
  >> Kayaking 
  >> White Water Rafting at Harper's Ferry
  >> DC Chili Cookoff
  >> Learn how to play poker
  >> Weekend trip to Ocean City (or Virginia Beach)
  >> Vacation in Wyoming to visit the Fantozzi's 
  >> Read, read, read on my patio

I know there's more to add to this list, but for now, these will do. And I plan on documenting all! Now for some snapshots of what I have been up to lately, via my Instagram.

I personally love the Instax Polaroid snapshot of my me and my boys (Scott and Baxley).  I cannot get over Baxley's squished, yet happy, facial expression. :)

Now, go enjoy your day. :)
