I think it’s safe to say it’s been awhile since I have posted anything.
What a crazy few months it’s been. And these last few weeks with Spring football starting, end of the school year wrapping up, trying to plan my vacation….my head is spinning. Out of those three things, only two actually happened. You guessed it, Spring football and the end of the school year. This means we have survived (barely) Freshman year. Holy moly what a ride that was! For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of experiencing this, I will say a prayer for you. To say it was a learning experience for both me and my son would be an understatement. But hey, we made it and that’s what counts!
Never did I think that planning a vacation would be so difficult! I had some grand ideas for what we could go do. Then my car was broken into. FYI, quarter glass windows on an Expedition are not cheap. Oh, and for a few days of my vacation, my son is out of state at football camp. I’m not complaining. A few days of me time and to get things all situated at home is fine by me. Plus he is off having a great time with his friends and teammates. I would consider that a win/win. So instead of taking some fun road trip for a few days, we will go fishing at Millersylvania State Park, the batting cages, and out to dinner at a local restaurant I’ve been telling him we will go to for a few years (mom fail for not doing it sooner!)
Speaking of Millersylvania. If you haven’t been, you need to go. It is a great spot to camp, fish, swim. They even have a beer/wine garden for the adults! I remember going there to swim when I was a kid and how grossed out we would get when the fish would swim between our legs. YUCK! They have boat rentals there too. You can rent a peddle boat, canoe, kayak, and even paddle boards I believe. Best part, they have a snack shack thing. It’s a gorgeous park with some trails to walk or just hang out by the fire at your campsite. Can’t wait to go camping there! Oh, and this is also where Pampered Wilderness is!! Hello glamping!
I’ve been trying to get out and shoot when I can. It has been delightful just taking my camera and going for a walk. The other night (when it was a million degrees) I wandered the Capital Campus. Here are a few photos I snapped real quick.
