Warrior Dash

In September 2012, I ran the Warrior Dash with my friend Allyson. It was 5k+ of running and lots of obstacles. Some of the obstacles included: climbing over hurdles, climbing under barbed wire, running through tires, scaling a wall, crossing a balance beam, swimming across a lake, wading through knee deep water, climbing over a net, jumping over fire, crawling over logs in muddy water, etc. It was a blast! The obstacles were fun and I had an awesome time with my friend. I don’t…

Hemlock Park

Last weekend it was beautiful weather even though we had a massive storm the day before. Here is Maestro leading the way on the trail Maestro is quite the rock climber. He loves this trail (and so do I) There were lots of little waterfalls. The river was very muddy looking because of the storm, but there were still a lot of people out kayaking and tubing.   Please like & share:

Luray Caverns

For Memorial Day weekend Nathan and I decided to go visit Luray Caverns. We stayed at a Bed and Breakfast and had a relaxing time. Here I am all ready to go out for dinner: In the caverns. I thought it would be in a mountain, but all the caverns are underground.     There is an organ that plays using the¬†stalactites.   There was a puddle under all of these, and the reflection looked so cool.   We also visited an old car museum.…

Super Pet Expo

In April we went to the yearly Super Pet Expo at the convention center. It was fun to go this time because I had Maestro to come along. One of the booths was hosting a contest where you take a picture of your animal and post it on facebook to try to win a year’s worth of free food. Here is Bella and Maestro posing: (yes, Bella is wearing sun glasses…) Well, a month later, here is Maestro’s first free bag of food: Yes! He…

Hemlock Overlook

We went back to Hemlock Overlook to try the other trail. The trail we did last week went through the woods, up and down hills, until it reached the river. This trail took you straight to the river, and then along it over rocks. Next time, I would like to put the two trails together for a longer hike. All of these trails are apart of the¬†Bull Run-Occoquan Trail, which covers 17-miles and is apart of what was used in the Civil War. One day…

Busch Gardens Orchestra Trip

Yesterday was my spring orchestra trip to Busch Gardens. The day started out at 4am when my alarm went off. After quickly getting ready, we stopped at CVS for some sunscreen, and then drove to school. The bus came at 5:30 and then we left. We got to Williamsburg in about two hours and were ahead of schedule so we let the kids go get breakfast. Luckily there was a shopping center with a lot of fast food, an IHOP and a Wal-mart, so they…
