Cacapon State Park - Gorgeous Green






When I planned our vacation with Grandpa to Cacapon State Park in West Virginia a few months ago, I knew I was making the right choice.  I had been here a year before, in a different season, and I so wanted to see it in all its green glory.  Early June was perfect - everything was leafy and lovely, and the weather was always in that sweet spot, never too hot and never too cold.  

We rented a cabin for the week (with air conditioning, just in case - we had not forgotten the hottest temperatures on record from last year's vacation to Lake Champlain).  We hiked.  We fished.  We played at the beach.  We built fires at night.  We played cards.  We napped.  We ate at the picnic table.  We dipped our feet into the lake.  We took the paddleboat out.  We drove to the top of the mountain.  We learned about trees from the naturalist.  And we all wound down, unplugged, relaxed, and reveled in the beauty around us.  I can't tell you how much we needed that this year.  West Virginia, thank you for the lovely time.

Rest and Relaxation



Hi everyone.  I'm sorry it has been so long since I posted... it is hard to believe there was a time when this was a daily photoblog!  I also can remember a time, before my child, when there was actual free time in a day, and we did things like watch t.v. and play games and process photos!  And blog!

Anyhow, I do have some new photos for you, from our recent week-long vacation to Cacapon State Park in West Virginia.  It was all rest and relaxation and yes, we even managed to squeeze in some poker.  We also did a lot of what this guy is doing - fishing.  He looks relaxed, doesn't he?
