Fall, Friends & Four Wheelers

  • Our Camping Adventure | Fall 2015

After our triple header weekend in October, we left our third wedding and drove straight to Lexington. We went to Big Spring Farm and spent the night.

Michael and I flew to Florida last Sunday with Michael’s grandma to meet his family in Sarasota! We stayed there for 2.5 days and then we left Sarasota at 3:30 am to be home to Sparta, VA before 10 am to spend the day with my family before my sister and her husband Joe had to leave to be at his family’s Thanksgiving extravaganza Thursday at 12 pm in PA.
