So Sam and I have been deciding what to do with our mutual week off coming up the week of une 16 through 20th.
Every year, we had been going to Heroescon, in Charlotte NC. However, this year we've decided to forgo it. While it has always been a great experience (and I've been going since before we were together) its just too expensive, and a long drive for just a 3 day weekend. Plus, my parents will be vacationing that same week, so there's no point in driving to NC. Other than the panels, there isn't enough to do to stay busy the entire 3 days.
One of Sam's co-workers discovered he had an extra ticket for Pearl Jam on Tuesday the 17th. So, we've decided to head to Virginia Beach. I'm excited! We're going to camp out! I've never camped out before. I'm looking forward to knitting by the campfire (but not too close!). Also, we will have access to showers and our own electricity. YAY Plus? KNITTING STORES! I think we'll do that probably either Sunday or Monday through Wednesday morning. Then we're heading to Williamsburg! We got a great package deal to do Busch Gardens one day, and Colonial Williamsburg another, and it includes our 2 night hotel stay. I haven't been to Colonial Williamsburg, in probably about 15 years. I've been wanting to return ever since I started listening to the Colonial Williamsburg Podcasts.
I really like this plan, because then we'll be back home Friday, and can get all unpacked and rejuvenated and relax before having to go back to work on Monday. Oh, and love on the kitties until they don't hate us anymore for leaving them home.
