I think I might be nuts…

So Nathan and I will be married for 10 years this October.  Crazy right?  I know everyone says this – but time really does pass by so very quickly!

Anyway, to celebrate our big 10 year anniversary, we’ve decided to take a week long vacation in September just the two of us.  We thought about doing a cruise, because they are so easy to plan and very fun and relaxing.  But then the more we thought about it the more we decided that we wanted to DO something.  Something active and fun. 

So we’ve come up with the idea to hike some 20 to 25 miles of the Appalachian Trail (over a two day period) in the Shenandoah National Park, go horseback riding, check out Thomas Jefferson’s homestead of Monticello, do a 4 1/2 hour tour of Mammoth Caves (which includes 670 stairs!!!!), and then go white water rafting on the Ocoee River. 

Ummmmm…….I am super excited about the trip….but…..help!  I need to get into shape just to enjoy our  vacation!  I’ve got 5 months to get my butt into shape.   Wish me luck!

So I read....... I think I might be nuts....Married to Nathan for 10 years....and I thought, yep, she's nuts!! haha

That sounds like a very fun trip but did you know some cruise ships have a rock wall? And some excursions are climbing Mayan ruins and tubing through caves and zip lining through tropical forests? Then you just take your tush back to the ship and they feed you.

I love me a cruise!! But I'm really excited for you. I remember being in the sealing room with you and Nathan when you got married. (Bet you didn't realize I was there, did you!!) Have fun with the next 10 years!

You can go Vegan with me and walk in the mornings with me Granny! Our neighborhood is excellent for walks/runs!Lots of hills!
If it wasn't your anniversary trip i would ask if me and Chris could join you! Wouldn't you just love that!
It just sounds really awesome!!!!

Sounds completely awesome. Can't wait to hear about it. Feel free to come walk with me, I need some motivation, too. I remember waiting outside the temple, I'm pretty sure Cassie went partially because I couldn't go in yet. :)

Yep, you might be nuts! J/K that actually will be really neat, and something you couldn't do with kids so here's your chance!
