Grateful for a Girls Weekend Getaway

As I was nearing the end of my travels around the US, my last stop brought me to Harper’s Ferry, WV! My mom found a vacation home called the Adventure Inn and gathered up all the girls in our family including my Nana, aunts and all the cousins.

We enjoyed a dinner and a movie the first night as everyone arrived at various times. Laughter echoed the house as inside jokes and new hair styles were attempted.

The next day brought more french braids and fishtail hairstyles before we made our way to downtown Harper’s Ferry…

After a bit of an “adventurous” drive to downtown Harper’s Ferry, we did a bit of seeing the sights, lunch outdoors, and fun photos along the way…

Relaxation was in order once we got back to the house… thankfully there was a hot tub for this…

Later into the evening a night of pampering and celebrations were in order after a delicious meal…

They surprised me with a little "Bon Voyage" celebration - complete with decor and sweet gifts

Happy Easter?

It was such a fun-filled weekend with family that I am going to miss terribly. I am so grateful for the memories we have created together and the laughter shared.
