Sweet Virginia

This weekend we headed up to Virginia to spend the weekend with my family. We got up there around Eight on Friday night and quickly headed out for Mexican and margaritas at the place next door to my parents. We had fun just catching up and hanging out before heading back and going to bed. 
Their garden is out of control amazing!
Saturday we went to see my parents new property they recently purchased. It is about half an hour away and in the middle of nowhere. I love the creek bed. And I will have to get my mom to email me a picture of the three bears the camera has spotted. One of them is absolutely huge! Fingers crossed I don't run into it. Still looking for Goldilocks...



Then we scooted over to one of my favorite quaint towns, Appomattox. Just so happens to be where we got married and you know, the small detail of Lee surrendering to Grant at the Mclean house. We stopped by the sweetest coffee and book shop. They're known for their live music on the weekends. 


That night we had dinner at my parent's. And snapped some more green beans from the garden to can and enjoy over the next year. Nothing quite like fresh greens!

then we listened to my brother play and sing for a little while and I got to play with my niece. I do love her so and she is so funny. Her red hair is my favorite, she takes after her aunt. ( I suppose she takes after her red headed momma too;)

Yesterday we had breakfast downtown and walked around a little before getting some shopping in. I hadn't been to Point Of Honor since I was in third grade. And Virginia has the love signs all. over. the. state. This shoe one in front of the renovated Craddock & Terry Hotel is one of my favorites!



 Then we headed with my older brother to a brewery about half an hour away and the view was just ridiculous! The food truck was awesome. and I somehow found a way to sample the beer...I made myself blackberry shandy's. Not too bad!

On the way home we stopped at this local spot and got some ice cream. It was National Ice Cream Day after all. Kind of had to! 

We're back home and back to work now. Did you guys do anything fun this weekend? It just goes by so fast! I already miss them.

Linking up with Meghan, Leeann and Meg

  11. I'm totally blowing up your blog right now - sorry lol!

    What a fun weekend! I really feel like I got ripped off growing up in SoCal. I mean we have beaches, Disneyland, and so much to do, but it's not the same as small towns and history :(

    Thanks for linking up for MMG!!
