Moving on Monday

Thanks to Casey for the great Virtual 10K.  How great everyone is getting a participation bracelets!  Way better than medals! 
Congratulations to everyone who got out there and did it! 

After a great run in the early morning, I did more running...around like a chicken with her head cut off!  Throwing everything together to head to VA for the remainder of the weekend.
It's not like I had 2 check lists hanging in the kitchen to help make sure I didn't forget anything!  But I did. 
I staged everything in the kitchen so we could get out the door as soon as I loaded the car.  Of course littlest decided to demonstrate his lastest skill; removal of the diaper within his sleeper right about pooing time.  Yuck!
I had to put him in the bathtub, wash out his sleeper and scrub the tub (sorry, I had to!  bleach, scrub, bleach, scrub).  Okay now we can be out the door and on the road. 
Forgot my purse.  Back to house.  Got it!
Now on the road to the start of our weekend.  We traveled with this view...

In case you can't tell.  That's ice on the trees.  Beautiful!!
Until we saw this...

I was worried about the driver at the front of this line.  Of course their day was much more in inconvenienced than mine.  (accident appeared to be ~ after a half hour wait ~ car versus deer equaled rear-ended by pickup truck.  Ouch. )

We passed the time with lovely road companions.

Finally there we met up with hubbs at our hotel.  He wanted to show us ....
(sorry.  no pictures.  But hubbs thinks that pictures would not do it justice anyway!)
After Wegman's we went to my favorite place to eat...
We met hubb's "foster family" there and had a great time! 
The next morning we headed to the gym.  The family swam in the pool.

My middle one wanted thrown and thrown....

After the pool we went to Luray Caverns
I chould have spent a day there (and then a week in Shenandoah National Park!!)

It was amazing!!

But the weekend is over so now I have to be moving on.


  1. Great pic of your family! We have a Wegman's by me and I LOVE it! We eat at the cafe there at least once a week and I get all my groceries there...it's the best!

  2. Love the pics! Looks like a great weekend, minus the traffic and poopy sleeper!

  3. What a fun weekend! Love the recap with photos.

  4. hey! sounds like a fantastic weekend. A little hectic, especially the start with all the poop, but it turned out very well!!!
    happy monday!

  5. What a nice weekend (minus the traffic jam) and I love the pic of the fam! Glad you got to get away and see the hubbs. Happy Monday my friend! :)

  6. Sounds like a really great weekend, sorry it had to end.

  7. Wow oh wow looks liek a great trip.. I had a friends whose son liked to take off his diaper, so she bought underwear and put them over his diaper...he couldn;t figure those out.

  8. Hey you....wow, what a traffic jam! I am so fortunate that I only work 2 miles from where I live...but sometimes I have to venture downtown in rush hour. OMG, YUCK!! Glad all was okay, though. I love your fam pic and those caves are so cool, been there a couple times in my younger days. Happy miles to you, Shelly! Have a great day!!!

  9. I just found your blog and love it! My children also have a huge difference between them (one is 28 months the other is 20 years old) so it's nice to see that I am not alone :)

  10. Sounds like a great weekend! I love the pictures!
