Monticello and Skyline Caverns

We had planned to enjoy a little vacation trip as we journeyed home from Pennsylvania. As we were enjoying our last breakfast with Abbey's China sisters' families, we got a phone call that rock us a bit. Quite unexpectantly, John's brother, Chuck, had passed away the night before. He choked on a piece of chicken skin. We continued our trip, but our hearts were hurting for his wife and kids.

The first stop we made was to Skyline Caverns. The sites are amazingly beautiful and to think it's all underground is even more amazing.

This is one stalamite that people were allowed to touch. You can see how smooth is has gotten.

We had a really nice hotel room for the night, and then went to Monticello, Thomas Jefferson's home/museum,  as we made our way home.

We signed up for the kid's tour. They had hands on activities for the kids and explained things so they could understand. It was very informative, not just for the young, but also the old.

Since we have the beach house, our vacations are usually spent there. It was nice to be able to do something different!
