Almost Heaven

We spent a week in West Virginia with my family and packed in a lot of outdoorsy-type fun.

While Will played at the cabin with Grandma and Grandpa, Rick Soren Seamus and I hiked in the Dolly Sods Wilderness Area.

Home of one-sided spruce trees

And rattlesnakes.

We tried to learn how to skip rocks at the river by the cabin 
(Rick already knew how so he mostly showed off)

We spelunked at Smoke Hole Caverns

And Seneca Caverns

And saw the Tooth Fairy's front door.  On the wall of a cave.  In West Virginia.  Huh.

Will read ghost stories by the campfire

We adventured around Blackwater Falls State Park

We rafted down the river

It was a fun trip. 
My favorite part: sitting on the front porch of the cabin, watching a thunderstorm roll over the mountain while the kids caught lightening bugs in the yard. 

Pomp and Circumstance

Seamus graduated from Puppy Kindergarten!
