There are good things about coming back from vacation though. It’s always good to realize you’re home, to be kissed hello by a husband who maybe, (maybe) missed you, and to sleep in your own bed again. But even then, I usually spend the first week back, thinking about my vacation and smiling at all the great moments.
This vacation my family and I spent at Pipestem State Park in West Virginia. We stayed in a cute little cabin at The Resort at Pipestem, and were fantastically isolated in the woods. It’s always hard, for me, to find a balance between activities and just being lazy on vacation, but this time I think we got it right. We usually got about one activity in a day, whether it was cards, playing life, archery, hiking, boating, swimming, or horseback riding. There was even a little mini golf…I won’t tell you my score, because I would just hate to brag that much. And between it all I was able to get some couple portraits in of my Brother Jack and His wife Pockets, but more of that later.
If you’ve never been to Pipestem State Park, I highly recommend it. The park is clean, there are a variety of places to stay from the lodge to tent camping, and the staff were all really nice. So without further ado, here is a lovely mix of our activities. Sorry there aren’t more of the swimming, archery, etc type activities…I had my hands a little full.
