For spring break 2014, I decided to do something new and plan a SKI trip! This is something even I had never done before. In fact, I can count on one hand how many times I’ve seen snow! I wanted to find a place that we could drive to. So, we chose Snowshoe, West Virginia. Our Spring break started on Friday, March 21, when we went to the Zoological Wildlife Foundation near Homestead. That was an amazing experience in itself, as we were able to interact with many exotic animals. Saturday, we did the Run or Dye 5K in the morning, ran home to finish packing, and started our drive. We stayed the first night with my parents in Umatilla, FL. We drove on to St. Augustine, FL on Sunday and met some friends there, Temo and family. We had a great time discovering the rich history of Florida. That night, we stayed at another friend’s house, was Christine Weltmer. I hadn’t seen her since middle school! Monday, we spend another day in St.
On that first night in Snowshoe a heavy snow fell with howling wind! It was colder than we could imagine! We were thankful to not be driving on this day in all the wind and snow! We were safe and sound at the resort, ready for our ski lesson.
