Shenandoah National Park

It was my first time to this park and Wade's first ever National Park. We camped two nights at the Big Meadows campground. He would not fall asleep...too much fun being in the camper with Mommy and Daddy. 

Several other ski club friends were there. Max and Wade completed the 1.8 mile Story of the Forest trail and earned ranger certified certificated which will be a great addition to our National Park wall in the quilt room. 

I hope this is just the start of many National Park visits for Wade...and he will embrace the beauty of his new homeland. 

And to top it off I got to scratch off "seeing a bear" from my bucket list. All the visits to parks out West and I have never seen a bear. We had two roadside sightings. It's not much of a picture but here is the proof!

Thre aren't enough happy faces to convey what joy this post brings! It reminds me of the Disneyworld commerical where the kiddos say "they're too excited to sleep"! After all of our bear hunting while out west we saw a black bear running along in the highway median in NY the weekend before last when we were returning from New England!
