4 Years

Andy and I got away for two days this weekend to celebrate our 4 year anniversary. Who knew that only about an hour drive away was one of the most fun places we have ever been! We dropped the kids off at my mom and dad's and headed over to Banning Mills. We spent Friday hiking around and learning a little about the history of Banning Mills. There were old Paper Mill ruins and this old Cotton Mill; it was beautiful.
We also got to see the fun that awaited us.  This was certainly the highlight of the trip! We spent about 4 hours doing a canopy zip line tour Saturday morning. I was so scared that I dared not bring my camera; however, after the first zip line I was having a blast and really wish I had brought it along. Maybe next time, because there will be a next time! It was so much fun! This was the view from our room.

 Video of the "Screaming Eagle"- a 1/2 mile long zip line. It's a little hard to make out the person starting out from the tower, but they eventually come in to view. This video doesn't do it justice!
Perhaps the scariest part of the tour was crossing these bridges over the creek.

I missed my babies terribly but mom and dad did a great job of sending photos throughout the day. They had a great time at Nanni and Papa's.



Happy Anniversary!! I can't believe its been 4 years! Congratulations, looks like ya'll had a great trip.
