Keepin' in Rural...

It's been awhile since I have blogged anything but that is because we are busy here in West Virginia helping my parents move into their home.
We kept the kids out of school Wed- Fri
( with all the teachers permission and extra homework!).

I was actually ready for a getaway!

See, my dad works in D.C. and they were living in an apartment in Silver Spring Maryland. They have finally decided to give up on moving back to California any time soon so they found this great place here in West Virginia.

It is about an hour and a half from here to D.C..

Very rural, quiet and country. Each home is really spread apart from one another

and they dot the rolling hills.

Yes, this is their front yard! it is more like a park than a yard! Wanna play soccer or baseball perhaps? lol

Being in West Virginia has literally made me sing that John Denver song

"Country road....take me the place...I belong...West Virginia...mountain mama... take me home... country road".

We had to drive through the Blue Ridge mountains/ Shenandoah valley to go home. It was specatacular!

The fall colors have been amazing up here and have already peaked. I was "oooing and awwing" at the leaves brilliant oranges and the red's.


Pictures won't do them justice.

Have a mentioned that was very cold too? Its was in the 20's at night a couple of times! We wore our winter fashionables! BRRR!

The boy's didn't care what the weather was. They just wanted to be outside playing!! Until next time....
