get away

Wednesday, July 11, 2007

We headed to Nemacolin Woodlands for a little getaway. Located on about 3,000 acres in Farmington, Pennsylvania. There are a million things to do. Honestly, something for everyone. To name a few ::climbing wall::ropes course::target paintball::archery::bike rental::off-road driving academy::miniature golf::shopping::spa::pools::auto toy store::animal encounter::sled dog kennels::wild world animal shows::black bear habitat::wildlife habitat::buffalo habitat::zebra habitat::canoe museum::sail and peddle boats::equestrian trail rides::pony rides::combat paintball::mystic rock golf course::falling rock golf course::tennis::art::skiing::tubing

I don't know why we don't ride bikes as a family when we are at home, but for some reason, we never seem to fit it in. It was awesome.
There are bronze statues everywhere. My personal favorite was this bathing beauty.
I tried to get her to work on my sock, but she fell bored with the second sock also.
I will finish these socks, I will, I will.

  7. Looks like loads of fun. That bronze statue is too funny. Does someone change her towel everyday? From my experience it is hard to get a bronze statue to do much of anything really much less finish knitting the second sock. They are lazy, lazy!

  17. Your version of that bronze statue is so funny. At first I was kind of worried because she looked so life like and had such a bad case of sun burn :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I need one of those for my pool side chairs - we all burn - arg!!

  19. In the first photo of the statue, I thought that the only thing missing was the knitting. I mean, don't we all knit as we lounge in the sun? Sounds like a fun place to visit.

  27. We went to Nemacolin Resort last summer and it was bliss! I loved the spa and oh it was wonderful - your post about it takes me there again. We stayed at the Chateau and my son had the best time oohing and ahhing over our room.

    Now I bet you feel refreshed for more of summer's fun.

  28. I'm glad you enjoyed your time there. I love the bathing bronze statue! How I long to have a one week break from work. I miss exploring all the marvelous beaches at the Panama City Beach. Vacation rentals there are incredibly cheap! Hopefully, I could go on a vacation soon.
