Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

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 next time we'll plan it a bit better I'm sure! 

(It was windy on the you can see from my hair!)
(Parachuters about to land below!)
Sunday was spent relaxing!  After our long and hectic (but fun!) weekend, we were both really needing the rest.  We had planned to go to sunday school as usual..but honestly I barely remember the alarm clock going off!  It happens to the best of us!  But I'm so thankful for such a FUN weekend spent w/my hubby!  Good times!!



  1. That does sounds like a super fun weekend! Love the pics (esp. from Babcock) as always!

  2. Sounds like a terrific weekend! I, too, spent Friday night at the local high school football game. Except I was working concessions. :) It was senior night and they asked that some of the middle school parents work so the high school parents could enjoy the game. I actually had fun! :)

    Babcock is perfectly beautiful, isn't it? And I've never gone to Bridge Day but Perri wants to go badly. I'm sure that one of these years we'll get up there.

    Glad you had such a fun weekend! :)

  3. Ya'll are so cute :-) I love that you two do things together all the time.. that's gotta be sooo nice!

    I've never actually been to bridge day! I've been to that bridge, and it's BEAUTIFUL.. but I'd really like to experience bridge day sometime!!

    Love the bridge pictures! Although I am terrified of heights and seeing the pictures made my palms sweat...
