We are heading to my beloved In Laws' vacation home at a resort out in the Virginia countryside. It is a lovely home that is all on one level [BONUS!] It sits on a wooded lot overlooking the golf course. What is it about my parents [both sets] that they build their homes on the 9th green? heehee - there is some synergy there.
A couple of added perks to the trip is that it is free to stay and we get to take the pooches. In addition, there are so many free things to do while we are there.
- Pontoon Boat rides
- Horse back riding [No, I will not be partaking. Gotta' love being ill to get me out of that. CHF has it's benefits. giggle]
- 3 swimming pools
- Golf [I am only riding in the cart, but it is so beautiful. And the lunch truck drives by. Skippy<---all about the food. YAY!]
- 2 arcades - ping pong and air hockey anyone?
- Fireworks [over the lake]
- Life size chess
For an entrance fee we are going to visit Montpelier [home of James Madison - the 4th President of the U.S.] and the County Fair. I am really excited about the Fair because Wallene has been busy getting her entries ready for judging. She is entering in the photography and [a few] art categories. So much fun.
Ooooh - as an added treat there is a drive in movie theater! OMGoodness! We are going to see the final installment of "Harry Potter" - WOOT! Drive in theaters are very rare around Virginia so this is really an extra special experience for us.
Wallene has already planned all of our meals for the week and written up a grocery list. God love the child. :D Since Pooldad was on call last weekend he received a $100 giftcard for the grocery store - FREE groceries! I consider them "free" because he did not receive a single phone call. That is the on call weekend I like best. heehee
It is shaping up to be a great week.
I have no idea whether we can get internet in the country - Don't forget to enter the drawing if you haven't yet. I will announce the winner at 9:30 tonight and mail the S'more gift pack out tomorrow.
Have a great Thursday Tadpoles.
