Happy 5th Anniversary, Charlottesville and the Grand Caverns

2013 is our fifth year anniversary and we’re spending it over here in Virginia with Lucy.  We decided to get out of town and go to Charlottesville.

Here are this year’s Glassy Babies to add to our collection.  The Creme Brulee colors represent our trip to Utah last year with all the reds, orange, and rust colors of the landscape.  The Canary color is all the happiness we experienced last year with all of Lucy’s milestones and celebration of another fun year together.  The Hudson colors represent the sunsets we experienced in Kauai last year.  The colors include blues, purples and hues of rust.  Last year was a great year!

 

Charlottesville is a super cute town where University of Virginia, Monticello and lots of Virginia history exists.  We stayed in the Boars Head Inn for two nights and it was phenomenal.

Our fancy breakfast, our first time having REAL maple syrup.  Yummy!

Monticello

Monticello is Thomas Jefferson’s home.  It is an engineering marvel.  He was such a forward thinker of his time, from his agriculture research, to his weather predicting, to his water collection methods and clock, calendar contraption.  He also had a HUGE library which was really neat to see.  Monticello is on the back of a nickel.

Grand Caverns

We went to the Grand Caverns on our way to the Shenandoah Mountains.  It was really neat to see. Lucy loved it too.
