Our Favorite Road Trip
Somehow I never got around to sharing photos from our vacation to Martinsville, VA in 2010. I meant to, and I did share the goodies we found, but for some reason that's all I shared. I wont bore you now, but I did want to share just a bit. And I was wondering... do you have a favorite road trip? Or is there a landmark you've always wanted to see?
We first went to Virginia in 2008. We accidentally ended up on top of a mountain we hadn't planned on visiting. It was already in the 30s outside (this was in March) and it was VERY foggy. We coudln't see a thing! Add in winding roads, me freaking out about how high we were & the kids talking about falling off the mountain. I'm sure Mike had a blast trying to drive! Finally we saw a spot to pull over. We sat for a minute and noticed the Lovers Leap sign. And then we noticed icecicles hanging from another! We checked the temperature & it was 30°. Needless to say we rolled the windows down (to hear to turn around!) and got out of there pretty quick.
When we went back in 2010 it was much warmer & much clearer. So we decided to try again. Still a scary drive (for me... I had my eyes shut most of the way), but I'm glad we did it. Look what we saw while we were up there!
