FC: Year of Adventure 2011
1: 2011 truly was the Year of Adventure...with the boys getting older, Andrew (9), Rocco (7), and Ian (4) we were able to enjoy so many wonderful things. The year started with a nice snow. We went strawberry, blueberry, and peach picking this year. Andrew got his first gun. We had season passes to Busch Gardens and Water Country USA. We hiked to the top of Peaks of Otter. And visited Washington D.C. So many memories will be cherished.
2: The year started with lots of snow. The boys had so much fun throwing snowballs and building snow forts. We had to make them come inside.
