10 February, 2010


In January, Mike, his parents, and I went down to Virginia for a weekend. His family has some friends who live down there and the men had planned a trip to go deep sea fishing on Monday. His Mom and I went along to just relax and spend time with the ladies!

We left on Friday afternoon, and drove until about 10 before stopping overnight at a hotel. Saturday morning, we got up early and drove to Mike's cousins, Chad and Kathi's house in Pennsylvania. We spent a few hours visiting with them before continuing on our way to Virginia. We arrived in Woodbridge around dinner time and joined everyone for dinner to celebrate Dave's birthday. We don't have a Cheeseburger in Paradise around here, but I definitely recommend stopping there if you ever get a chance!

Sunday was spent relaxing and enjoying time with eachother. We went to church with Dave and Nancy and they had a special luncheon at their church so we stayed for that. The men left for Virginia beach in the early afternoon, so that left us ladies to enjoy the afternoon! We relaxed at night in the hot-tub and then watched a movie.

Monday morning we went to Quantico. Dave was in the military so they have access to the base, and Nancy was able to show us around. It was especially neat because Mike and I love to watch NCIS and many of the shows are based around Quantico. Then we went to Ikea. It was my first time going there and it was such an incredible store! I could spend all day browsing there (we did spend a lot of time there!) I got some great deals, and some really neat ideas for when I have a house! We went out for lunch and then hit a few more stores. The men got back around the same time we did and we left to head back to Michigan around dinner time. We drove until 10 before stopping at a hotel, and then continued back to reality on Tuesday. It was great to get away for a weekend and not have to worry about work, and just be able to relax!

The snow on the trees in Pennsylvania was absolutely beautiful!

A flew around most of the time we were there, but we also got to see it land and take off again!


  1. I'm so jealous that you got to go Quantico! I have a sick love for NCIS. =) Looks like you had a lot of fun!
