family vacay

We got back on the 22nd, but I had a crazy busy week and am just now sitting down to go through pictures from our trip to Luray, VA.

We left on Tallulah's birthday, but not before a breakfast of donuts and opening her birthday gifts.  This Lego set was actually the only thing she asked for for her birthday and she was very happy to receive it :)

Next it was off the the gas station for a pre-vacay fill up and car wash...

We stopped in Monticello on the way to visit Thomas Jefferson.  We had never been before and really enjoyed our short visit- despite the heat index being in the 100's.

Emmy loved riding around on dad's back both in Luray Caverns and hiking in Shenandoah.
Here are all the cousins but the two babies

And this is the newest addition to the family- we were all excited to meet our newest niece/cousin for the first time :)

We swam in a nearby lake...
and in the hot tub at our cabin
There were water balloon fights...

and talent shows.

We hiked to Dark Hallow Falls in Shenandoah (it was beautiful, but it took a whole week for my knee to recover from that 1.5 mile, steep, rocky climb!)

And before we headed home we stopped back by Luray Caverns to do the ropes course (super fun and even Addie could participate on the low ropes part!)
We had a great time visiting with the hubby's family and just relaxing for 6 day.  I even read 2 books! Divergent and Insurgent, in case you wanted to know- It is a young adult, Hunger Games esque series- book 3 comes out in October.  In enjoyed them, but wouldn't want my middle-schooler reading them (there was lots of kissing).
