Keep Coming Back For More

We spent the last two days at the Big Meadow Lodge in Shenandoah, Virginia. We were last there six years ago where we stayed in a room attached to the main, historic lodge. The last time we stayed, we discovered mice in our room. I had a bag of pretzels and during the night we heard a rustle-rustle-rustle in the bag. Egads.

So we asked for some traps and the next night killed four mice in our room.

But overall, we had a great time, and so we happily took the girls back.

It was wonderful to let the girls run and run and run. They could climb, hop, jump, touch everything, and I did not have to tell them no or to slow down or put that back or down. Emma had such a great time that she fell asleep at the table at dinner.

The rooms still have a little to be desired. We tried the cabins this time. The girls wandered around the small room looking for the tv!! When it was time to go to sleep, the girls went down happily and easily. Garry was in the bathroom and I was trying to go to sleep. We had noticed before that the walls separating the cabins were very thin. Very thin. But as our room was really quiet, I suddenly noticed how thin the walls were. Trying to fall asleep, I heard our neighbor fart, laugh heartily, and then blame it on his wife. Lovely.

Overall experience, fabulous. Cabins, once again, not my favorite part.
