Getting away…

May 5, 2009 in birthday,camping,hike,trip

So I’m ironing out the final details… but I was so excited to share this! Some of you may have heard that I am planning a trip for BF for his birthday. He’s actually going to Denver the day of his birthday and he’ll be gone for a week (which I am super bummed about, but oh well). But after he gets back, we’re going away for the weekend — our FIRST weekend getaway, by the way. 🙂

This is what we’ll be doing:

Friday morning we will leave for West Virginia. We will be staying at ACE Adventure Resort. When we arrive, we’ll set up our campsite! I’m so excited to camp! It has been ages since anyone has agreed to go with me. After our arrival we’ll be going to the Whipple Company Store and Museum, which is this old coal mine museum. Yes, we are starting the weekend out very mellow! But this is about as mellow as it gets! Hopefully the weather will be beautiful for the weekend, because throughout the weekend I hope to get some sun and be able to swim at the camp resort.

The plan is to take a Canopy (zip line) Tour Friday evening (at dusk). Which I am SO excited about! I’m hoping to get a beautiful view from the treetops while attempting to conquer my fear of heights!

Saturday morning we’ll wake up bright and early and head out on an 8-hour whitewater rafting trip. The last time I went whitewater rafting was a few years ago, so I’m definitely due for an adventure! I plan on being pretty exhausted come 6-ish Saturday night, so I’m prepared to lounge near the fire, s’mores in hand, of course! Sunday will not fall short of excitement either. Sunday we are going for a 1/2 day trip of Rock Climbing.

I haven’t decided if we’ll be staying Sunday night or not… He knows about the trip already because I had to get him to take some time off work, but I’m JUST as excited either way! Only problem is… what do I GIVE him on his birthday?? I. need. suggestions. HELP!

That looks like an amazing trip! Y’all are going to have a great time… maybe for his actual b-day you could give him something to use on the trip? Sunscreen, bugspray, whatnot? Sounds like a great gift, I know, lol.

Also, I left an award for you on my blog! Swing by to check it out 🙂
