We started out our weekend on Friday with some GREAT news! Damon got his EMT-M certification card in the mail when we stopped by the post office!! He passed!! We waited several weeks for that moment and it was definately worth the wait! I'm SO PROUD of him! Way to go, babe!
Friday night was partially spent at our old high school we both attended. Van High's homecoming football game was held and we decided to go and check it out for a bit! We hadn't been to a game in several years so it was a nice time out. Nothing beats the cool, fall air and football season! We left right after halftime and Van was leading by quite a bit..the Bulldogs are doing great this year! AND I ran into an old classmate (who is also coincidentally a previous co-worker of Damons)!
Saturday morning we got up super early and headed to the Fayette County area for some fun! First we stopped by Babcock State Park for our annual fall photos we always take! It was GORGEOUS to say the least and we got some great shots!
Then after Babcock it was off to Bridge Day! Anyone who hasn't heard of it before, the New River Gorge Bridge is located in Fayetteville, WV and is (I believe) the longest steel arch bridge in the Western Hemisphere. Each year on "Bridge Day", visitors are allowed to walk across the bridge and people also jump from the bridge (parachuting and repelling)..also called BASE jumping. Its quite a sight for someone who's never seen it before! I've been many times but always enjoy it alot! My only regret is we got there really late..and it ends by 3pm..so next time we'll plan it a bit better I'm sure!
(It was windy on the bridge..as you can see from my hair!)
