We left for Virginia two Thursdays ago, and spent 6 days with our dear friends, the Volpes. Rob drove through the night, so we arrived in Kerrs Creek around 7:00 Friday morning.
Our first order of business was to get some sleep, but then the fun was on like Donkey Kong. During the week, we went to Chuck E. Cheese, we got some ice cream, drank about 15 pots of coffee, and consumed nearly 2 gallons of this..
I have never been a fan of coffee creamer other than evaporated milk, until these folks got me hooked on this deliciousness. I’m pretty sure this stuff attributed nearly 4 pounds to the 5 pounds I gained on vacation.
We made a trip to the children’s museum. Everyone had a blast.
We rode tractors,
milked a cow,
tried on a bug’s armor,
got stuck in a spider web,
heard our heart beating on a drum,
laughed at Bryan and Christina as they battled it out on the bikes,
checked out the human body,
raced tiny wooden canoes,
went zip lining through the tunnels,
caught a fish with an Indian net,
built stuff with blocks,
attempted to start a fight with Daddy with said blocks,
lost the block fight,
and our favorite part (especially for my Scooter and her art skills) was painting on the walls of a room.
Cade even got to be a part of a rock band!
But the highlight of my trip was doing Zumba at the Moose Lodge. I have recently found a LOVE for Zumba, but I have to say, you have never really done it unless you’ve done it at the Moose Lodge.
I mean, just look at these facilities!
The aroma was so THICK we nicknamed the class EMPHY-ZUMBA because we were so afraid we were going to leave with a slight case of emphysema from the cigarette smoke.
Regardless of how winded we felt, we had a blast. I will never forget it. How could you forget with a picture like this?
Now, about my new blog layout. I contacted Tenille and she was a doll! I sent her the pictures I wanted to use, and she had me up and running the next day. I have no idea how she does this, as I spent an entire day trying to do it myself. I am so proud of it and I hope you like it too!!! If you are interested in a new blog design, I would HIGHLY recommend her.
