The Rest of Vacation

10 Jul


The rain cleared out for the rest of our vacation and everyone starting feeling better! We spent two full days at the Smith Mountain Lake State Park. They have a great beach, snack bar and playground so it was perfect for us. Miss H loved the water there- and swimming out to the platform.

Miss H was really interested in the fireworks but we were not sure if she would be able to stay up so late so we spent most of the day at the beach and convinced her she needed a nap. For someone who was supposedly not tired, she fell asleep in about five minutes. We headed to Moneta for their annual fireworks and 4th of July celebration. It was a mini-carnival with music and food and we all had fun!

Miss H loved the section of bounce houses.

The show went on for about 20 minutes and they did a great job!

Friday, we headed to the Smith Mountain Lake Dam
