TOAL 2016- Day 7 and 8

We stayed in the Shenandoah Valley and enjoyed the beautiful scenery.  

Luray Caverns was our next stop.  

The kids didn't know what to expect, but the caverns were amazing.

Mirror Lake

For lunch, we took the kids to taco bell for the first time.  

Luray caverns has a few museums. This was the car/wagon museum.

They have a old town/settlement across the street too.

This Love sign was out in front of the caverns and an amish group were picnicking under the trees.

Our campground had a great pool.  

We asked a local for a restaurant recommendation and we found a delicious mexican restaurant, Jalisco in New Market.

On our last long drive, we stopped by the Natural Bridge.

It really is a beautiful sight to behold.

The Native american settlement was very interesting and well done.

The kids loved the animal skins.

Jovie wanted to explore a trail she found and she took us way up the mountain.  That is out of her normal character, so I enjoyed seeing her take the lead and be adventurous.

This funny rock was on the trail.

The cave on the property.

The kids enjoyed playing the river the most.

They colored turtles with the park workers and looked at the tadpoles growing in the water.

We headed home from there and it took forever. We had lots of detours and traffic, but we made it back safely.  We had a great week!
