Weekend Fun!

So remember on my last post I told you guys to check back in to see what I've been up to for fun throughout travel season? Well now I will get to fill you in.

Throughout travel season there are many times when I am on the road away from home during the weekends for one reason or the other. So, when that does happen I like to try and plan something fun to do if at all possible (minus the weekends I have fairs both days). So here are a couple of places I have been so far.

On my second weekend of travel I was up in the Northern Neck. Fortunately for me my family owns a river house in the Northern Neck which proved to be very convenient this year during travel season!!! It was also early enough in the fall that it was still warm out and great weather to be by the river. That weekend my aunt and uncle were down at the river and so were their friends who also have a house there. It was so nice out the first day we were there we decided to get a bushel of crabs to work on throughout the day and take a nice sunset dinner cruise that night.

It was so relaxing and so much fun to be with family! The sunset cruise was beautiful and we had a feast out there! And then we ended the night with a Retro, Retro, Retro dance party!!! I always have the best time with my family at the river house, it is always SHORE to be a good time!!! Get it!? hahaha I'm so cheesy!

Here are some pictures from the weekend:

This was our chariot for the sunset dinner cruise!

This is the picture after we ate dinner! We were a happy bunch!

Also, a couple weekends back I was in Durham for the weekend for a college fair so I was lucky enough to spend the weekend with my little sister in my sorority, Devon! She graduated from R-MC this past May and just started at Duke Divinity in the fall. It was the perfect time to catch up with her and get to see Duke and all her new friends. We had a wonderful time walking through the Duke gardens, walking around campus at night, eating on campus, and hanging out with her divinity friends. I got to see inside the library, the Divinity Chapel, and inside the Duke Chapel!!!

On the Sunday I was there we went to church in the morning at the Duke Chapel. It was really perfect timing because the Sunday I was there was Founders Sunday and Dr. Stanley Hauerwas preached. It was a wonderful service and the perfect way to wrap up my visit with my Littles! Thanks so much Devon for letting me visit! I had the best time and can't wait to visit again soon!

This is a picture of the chapel at night!

Check back in later for more exciting things happening during my travels and I will give an inside look into hotel living! :)
