The annual LDSEHE Homeschool Conference rolled around in May. I have a couple of pics of the Neptune statue on the boardwalk at Virginia Beach. The hotel was just past the end of the boardwalk.

Rick and I celebrated our 20th Anniversary this year. Can't believe it's been that long! We went on a nice, relaxing trip to the Pigeon Forge TN area and stayed in a lovely cabin for a few days. It was great, and we can't wait to take the kids there sometime soon.
|I took this quiet getaway as an opportunity to try to figure out my camera a bit more.|
|Our cabin was so secluded in the trees, I didn't have much to take photos of!|
|The wonderful cabin.|
|On the back deck.|
|Wonderworks....such a cool looking building.|
|Me in front of the "Titanic"....at the Titanic museum.|

This year was our family's 3rd year participating in the outdoor drama The Promised Land in Bath, NC. Henry and I have sat out for the last 2 years. I think I might have to get back into it next year!
