Shenandoah Valley

Nick came home this morning after doing over a month of training up in D.C. which started on Sept 6th. He was gone for a majority of the time, only coming home for a day or two between his SIX 3 day long tours. Then, once his training was complete, he was scheduled to do his first official 3 day duty tour after only being home for less than 24 hours!!!! The kids (and I) missed him a LOT, so he and I decided to take the kids over to the Shenandoah Valley to see the sights and check out a resort up there.
The leaves are starting to change around here and I can't wait to see how beautiful it will be in a couple weeks! Here we are at Massanutten Resort, at a lookout over the Valley. GORGEOUS! It was a beautiful day out as well, the weatherman said it will probably be the LAST 'good' weekend we have left. Temperatures were in the high 6o's and the breeze was perfect.
Just a couple blocks from home on our near 2 hour drive back home, we saw 7 deer in these people's yard! We turned around to go see them again, pulled into the driveway, and the deer just looked up at us for a second and then carried on. They jumped around and chased each other. It was so much fun to watch them!
It was a long day of driving but the kids did pretty good considering!
