Babymoon/Anniversary Weekend

Since Rob and were not together on our anniversary, we decided to take a trip when he got home. Early in my pregnancy, I started hearing women talking about taking babymoon’s with their husbands before their LO’s (little ones) arrived. I thought it was a brilliant idea! Rob has always been the vacation planner out of the two of us so he started researching trips. We knew I would be in my 8th month and 3rd trimester when he got home which ruled out a cruise and flying (because of comfort). 
We decided on a cabin in Crockeet Virgina at a place called Cripple Creek Cabins. It has gotten excellent reviews and was exactly what we were looking for. 
On our way down, we found a cute consignment store and purchased a ton of outfits for Peanut (both boy and girl clothing). The prices were amazing and quality was great. 
When we got there we were welcomed by stray kitties, freshly baked cookies and a warm hello from the owner. He walked us through the amenities and then took us to our cabin for a tour.

As part of the baby moon package, we were also welcomed with a  fresh plate of chocolate covered strawberries and sparkling cider. They were delicious and we enjoyed them while using the Jacuzzi tub! 

In the mornings we called and said, “we are ready for breakfast”. About 30 minutes later there was a knock at our door. Outside we would find a cooler, warming back and large Tupperware container. Inside the cooler was juice and condiments. For breakfast we had french toast and eggs one day and egg casserole and muffins the next.

There was a fridge with beverages and a microwave in the room. We decided to cook out one night and went to the store and got steak, corn, onions & peppers, garlic bread and salad. They gave us steak knives and grilling utensils to use. It was very yummy!!!

Like some of the other Bed & Breakfast places we have been to, this one had a journal where you could write about your experiences for other visitors to read.
