So, Clan Stephieface has returned home from a wonderful vacation abroad… err, well abroad if abroad means skipping over to the next state staying 2 hours from your house. The Mister and I packed up the 4 Flying Diaperinis and headed off to Deep Creek Maryland.
Well first, we stopped over at the in laws (who were going as well) to do some last minute loading up of baggage and whatnots….. whatnots being laundry and the like. While I washed clothes, the Mister and his brother played some Wii…
Go Ahead… guess what they’re playing…. I’ll wait……. (while you try and guess, let me say I think it should be the newest round of blog contests to post pictures of your loved ones playing Wii and inviting people to guess the game they playing- so far, no one has got the game they were playing right)……..I guess that’s enough time- they were playing………………bowling.
This year’s trip was slightly different than last year’s since the Mister came with us this time. Now, mind you, my Mister is not what you’d call one of those “nutty” types (you know, types like me) but he did make every effort to aid me in my blogging endeavors and was just as excited as I to get a good picture of us entering our favorite place in Maryland….. Accident.
And in trying to get pictures of Accident, we almost got into an accident- true story.
Halfway through the week the Mister granted my one and only vacation wish which was to go back to Swallow Falls. It was at this point in the vacation that I realized that I will never have proof that I was ever on vacations with my family being the one who takes all the pictures… maybe I should start putting my thumb in the corner to prove I was there……. So anyways, we went back to Swallow Falls. Swallow Falls Park actually has 3 falls, Muddy Creek Falls…
I didn’t get a picture this time of Swallow Falls or Indian Falls, but trust me they were impressive- so impressive that my camera ran out of batteries when we got to them. I did get a good number of pictures though……you know before the dying……
There were ginormous squish you dead where you stand and your little dog too rocks being supported by wee little rocksThese are remarkable because these squish you dead rocks loom over you as you walk along the path. The Hemlock trees are what I refer to as the Maryland redwoods…..
And now for the fairy inspired portion of our blog post……..
And what family vacation is complete without a picture of your kids in front of a tree?
Later on we returned to the cabin where there were magnificent artworks in process:
And of course the super illegal baby kungfu fights:(wee bit of useless trivia for you…. Darius there is older than Danny by 3 months and yet they are the same size).
And as we drove through the Laurel Highlands I totally got the impression that those Uniontown Pennsylvanians really really dig their statuary… not only did we pass a 7ft tall hunter, then later a 10 foot black bear….. but we also passed these 15ft tall dueling stags
