Pictures from Philly and Camping

This past weekend John and I went camping in Shenandoah National Park - one of my favorite places. This was our last weekend of John's break from school so we wanted to take advantage of it. We went with one of John's classmates and his family. Friday and Saturday we got rained on, but we still had a good time. Sunday was beautiful and we were able to go on a 4 mile hike before heading back to DC. Here are some pictures of our weekend as well as some from our trip to Philly. Philly is first.

Pod Asian where we ate on Sunday night - John and I did not feel "cool" enough to eat here!

The Liberty Bell - much smaller than I thought it was

Inside of Congress Hall

In front of Independence Hall

A side view of Independence Hall - I really liked these clocks

More Independence Hall - we toured it on Sunday afternoon

The dining room of our Bed and Breakfast - so beautiful!

Dinner at the White Dog Cafe on Saturday night - so good!

As we walked to dinner on Saturday night, we came across a Pi Kappa Phi fraternity house - John's fraternity at Texas Tech - so I got John to pose for a pic.

Our room the first night at our B & B - our room the second night was even nicer, but I didn't get a good picture of it. I love how Annie is looking up at John adoringly in this picture.

Me by the fireplace in the dining room

I loved this stained glass window which was in the entry way of the B & B

On our hike to the Rose River Falls in Shenandoah National Park

My favorite picture from this past weekend - John zipped Annie up in his coat because it was so cold and rainy. Annie hates the rain.

Hanging by the fire on Saturday

One of the few pictures we managed to get of the views along Skyline Drive

These deer were just hanging out only a few feet from our tent

One of my favorite things about camping - John cooks!

Maybe I will be able to post more pictures when I see my husband again at Christmas :)

Those are some amazing pictures! It looks like you guys had a blast.

Oh and that was too funny about the twins comment... that didn't even cross my mind when I wrote the title but it was deceiving!

Great pictures, Becky! I'm so glad the two of you were able to get away for some fun!

I also hope you get to see your hubby before Christmas. I was surprised to see that the B and B took dogs. A lot of them here do not. I love the photos! Looks like a great time!

Love the pics! I'm so glad you guys have been able to spend some time away together.

No way the Liberty Bell is that small?!
Love the B&B pics. We like to stay in places like that too. Fun!
