Spring Break Trip for Joanna and Lily

As my spring break occurred several weeks after Wyatt's this year and poor Ken doesn't get a spring break, Lily and I decided to go on a "ladies only" trip for our vacation week.  I was planning on visiting Parkersburg to celebrate my mom's birthday, but alas, she was already booked in Holland for the week.  

After speaking to my dad and finding out he was going to a fishing cabin with his bff Rocky AND Rocky's daughter (aka my bff Rachel) AND her family, I just had to invite us along!  It was a fantastic decision.

LOVE this one.  So sweet.

Papaw in his element.

The Long and Wiseman crew--Oliver caught his yellow plastic fish every cast!

Lily's first fish of the day.  She loved looking at it, but wasn't too sure about touching it.
After fishing in the pond behind the cabin, we decided to drive down to Bemis for some trout fishing.
If you look REALLY closely, you'll see the Long/Wiseman crew on the bank.  I swear.

Dad and I went off on our own for a bit and I managed to catch my very first trout!  Lily spent her time crawling all over the rocks with Oliver and giving Rachel a run for her money.  ;)

Dad was pretty bummed that we didn't think to take a picture of me with my trout, so I had him take this picture as soon as we arrived back at the cabin. 

 The cabin was great.  We were definitely NOT roughing it!
Lily:   Rachel brought you this ballerina outfit.  You wore it EVERY day we were at the cabin until I finally hid it because it was so filthy.  You danced for all of us!
On Tuesday we had some snow.  It was pretty cold all day so we stayed inside.  We also took a trip into Elkins for a Kroger and McDonald's run.
Once it warmed up, Lily and Oliver enjoyed an egg hunt.  Thanks to Sheila and Rachel for all of the goodies!

On Wednesday, we went to a neighboring community called Davis for some lunch and playtime.  We had intentions of checking out some of the cool local shops but apparently Davis is closed on Wednesdays.  Who knew?

This is my favorite part of going to any cabin!  (See previous post.) 
Chowing on some pizza mountain pies. 

Lily rocking the look.
 We don't get to see the Longs nearly as much as we want, so this trip was wonderful.  Lily and Oliver are only 3 months apart, and I want them to grow up as good friends.  I think we're off to the right start.
