We took a trip up to Crofton today to visit with Chase and his family. Sarah wanted me to take a few pictures of the two of them since she won’t be seeing him again for a while. We headed over to the Pennyrile National Forest State Park. The drive was absolutely breathtaking. I can’t wait for you to come home so that you can see it. Initially, we started a hike on a little trail in the woods. We found a cool spot with some beautiful rocks, but once we got closer we realized that the area was infested with spiders, bugs, and ticks – OH MY! We scurried out of there as quickly as possible, but I still ended up with 8 ticks crawling on me when we got out of the woods. I have the heeby jeebies just from thinking about it. We headed over to the lodge instead and I took a few pictures of them behind it. It was gorgeous scenery, and bug free! Go figure. The pictures turned out so sweet, just like first love should be.
