We are back from our fantastic vacation in West Virginia!  It was SO much fun and we really enjoyed ourselves.  We stayed in a house along the Cacapon River and had a blast at Cacapon State Park.  We went swimming, kayaking, fishing, horseback riding and made s’mores on the outdoor firepit.  On the last day, we drove to Harper’s Ferry and went whitewater rafting down the Shenandoah River.  The guides stopped the rafting along the way for us to swim in the river and it was a fantastic day!
