What a fun week!
Last Monday, I rushed home after work to find my well traveled beau home from tour. It had been 3.5 weeks since I'd last seen him, and it is safe to say that I missed him! So this week we have been catching up on some summer fun times. Adventures to the river, Maymount and lots of tour stories.

Friday was my day off and we went on a little road trip! While he was on tour we started a list of things to do when he got home. One of our ideas was to go to Dinosaur Land! For those who don't know, Dinosaur Land is kind of the best/tackiest/funnest place ever. It is a small park close to Winchester featuring upwards of 20 hand made dinosaur structures. Needless to say by my mention of the word 'tacky,' but the dinosaurs are far from accurate interpretations. While we were there we found out that Dinosaur Land was built in 1964 (!!!). Such a fun time.

After Dinosaur Land we drove to Lovettsville VA to have dinner with his family (boy was I nervous!). What a gorgeous place and a great family! I had tons of fun, and felt very welcome. After dinner we took a look at his Mom's boyfriend's collection of vintage cars (*jaw dropping*) and watched Shutter Island. It was nice to get away for a bit, and I can't remember the last time I've had that much fun. I am one lucky girl.
