Staying Stylish in Suburbia

Coming Home Country Road- Harpers Ferry, WV

Tuesday, September 3, 2013

One of the things I love best about our new home on the East Coast is the variety that surrounds us here. Not only are we within a short distance to the Nation's Capitol with all the city fun of museums, music, culture etc... We are also close to some of the very best outdoor activities around with the Appalachian trail, rock climbing, biking and rafting all nearby.

This Labor Day weekend we took advantage of the latter, exploring the historic town of Harpers Ferry which as it turns out is also a hub for outdoor recreation. Settled in the mountains of West Virginia where the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers intersect it was the perfect setting to celebrate the end of summer. Traveling with two kids under three is never easy but amid the chaos and a few breakdowns, both from the girls and from us, we managed to have fun wondering through old town, wading in the river and sampling the town's famous frozen custard. I can imagine spending many a weekend here especially as the girls get older and we can start to to introduce them to kayaking, hiking, biking and zip line adventures. Such fun awaits!!!
