Wow. Where to start. This post will probably have 2 parts because of all the pictures I've taken! The weekend started with Mike's 40th birthday party. Noah picked out the deer antler cake & we had a fun time with family & friends at Nana's pool. Then, Sat. we had the finale to the kid's Upward Soccer. They had a really good time and it was a great experience. THEN we packed up Sunday am and went on vacation to VA. One my favorite places to vacation when I was little was Natural Bridge, VA. It is an amazing place and now I get to take my kids there. They loved the Drama of Creation Night Show, the Caverns and the hiking but not the Wax Museum so much.....it was a little to life like! :)
We stayed a few nights in the beautiful hotel and then moved on to our first family camping trip at Cave Mt. Lake. Very cool lake & beach surrounded by mountains!! Beautiful! Our campsite was right beside the creek so we played Go Fish in the tent till we fell asleep to the sound of running water. I was spoiled and slept on a air mattress and slept like a log. Laurel did too, as we had to wake her up at 10:15 the NEXT MORNING!! We will definately be doing more camping together.
One of the highlights of the trip was going to the 180 acre Wildlife park. You could feed the animals right from your car the whole way. We laughed until we cried! The ostriches were crazy & creepy. The llama's were just downright rude and the camels stole your buckets and chewed on them!! It was one of the most fun things I've ever done. We rode through it twice. I would highly recommend this park to everyone. Where else can you feed and pet a Yak out in the open while sitting in your car??
