Southwest Virginia Update

Tubing the New River

We are currently on vacation in the mountains of Southwest Virginia! Wi-fi at our house is terrible so I am not able to post pictures as I go, but I’m currently sitting in the Abingdon library and thought I’d share a couple quick updates. Enjoy!

Family Picture
Every year on our anniversary we get family pictures taken. We love to watch our little family grow! While we were in town we had Holly Dwan take them, and we are so pleased with the result! I can’t wait to get one framed and up on our wall of pictures.
Chris at W Kerr Scott Dam
We stopped at W Kerr Scott Dam & Reservoir in Wilkesboro, NC on our way to the mountains. It turned out to be the perfect spot for a quick dip after lunch. Entry to the park cost $5 and it was less than 5 minutes off the highway.
Kids with ice pops
Enjoying ice pops after biking the Virginia Creeper Trail and enjoying a picnic lunch in Damascus. Ice pops were complimentary with the shuttle service we used.
Chris floating down the river
It was our first time tubing together as a family! Chris and I had never even gone together. We used Wahoo Adventures and had a great time.
HJ with Cinderella
Oma Leni took HJ to see ‘Cinderella’ at the Barter Theatre Stage II. She was so excited to get to meet Cinderella after the show!


If you’re interested in our previous trips to the area. You can check out my posts on Abingdon, Damascus, the Virginia Creeper Trail, and Grayson Highlands. I’ll be updating those posts with new pictures and info after this trip!
