so. much. fun!
our surprise trip was to luray, virginia (in the shenandoah valley)! i love small town america, so this place was totally my scene.
the highlight of the trip had to be going to the luray caverns. one of our favorite things to do when we lived in utah was to hike up to timpanogas cave, which B knows i miss, so planning a trip to the caverns was a major hit.
my absolute favorite thing to see in the cave was the reflecting pool. it looks like an entire symmetrical room...or someplace you'd find on the moon:
here are my other favorite shots from our "spelunking" excursion:
it was such a beautiful sight! i am so glad we had the opportunity to go and i hope we get to go back soon (since it was only a 2 hour drive). if you haven't been and you ever get the chance, do it! even mack loved it! he was strapped to me in his bjorn just jabbering away for nearly the entire thing, until he finally fell asleep for the last 10 minutes of hour long tour.
especially for a first family trip, this was a huge success! we all had so much fun that i can't wait to go on another weekend getaway! i'm thinking...ocean city, maryland next time?
