My mom planned the entire trip and surprised me. It was so much fun! We had a really relaxing time--going antiquing, eating fabulous (!!) meals, and enjoying each other's company. I can't wait for the time--perhaps in just a few years--when my mom and I can get away for little trips every year!
We also visited James Madison's home, Montpellier. We watched a huge storm blow in from the house, and I've never seen wind like that. It was crazy!
On our last day of the trip, my mom had planned for us to hike in Shenandoah National Park. Well, it was unexpectedly thirty-two degrees and blowing snow (see the snow in the background?), so we hiked for all of about ten minutes!
It was a really special way to celebrate turning thirty. Thanks, Mom!
