a little adventure to an important rock

Saturday, July 28, 2012

Today we decided to take a little adventure. I know the plans were originally to make it to Virginia Beach, but this morning when we woke up we just didn't feel like beach material (or driving material...2-3 hours of it..). I don't know what it was, but this morning our original plans just didn't sound like a good idea anymore. So instead, we decided to go on a little adventure. This is where we ended up:

I looked up local attractions in the gps and we landed at Meditation Rock, out in Fredericksburg. This was actually a few blocks from the College of Mary Washington, and it was obvious as there were college dorms all up and down the street. A park was built around the rock, and it was pretty cool. If you can't read the above plaque, basically this is the place that Mary, George Washington's mother, prayed for the safety of her son and the country during the days of the revolution. This area of rocks was shaded by ample trees around, and it was one of her favorite places to sit and read and pray. Pretty cool, huh? (And obvoiusly, the college is named after her!) Here are some pictures of us there:

This reminded Marshall of Enchanted Rock, back in Fredericksburg, Texas. (Crazy that these two cool rocks are from the same named city!) I know he's been wanting to take me there for a while as I haven't been, so we're waiting on that. But I know it is absolutely beautiful. Cannot wait :)

Afterward we decided to go out to eat and to the movies again. We just stopped by the mall which was in the area, had some Chick-Fil-A, walked around for a bit, and saw a movie. It was a slow little day for us.

Now I'm just trying to concentrate on homework, but it's not working out as well as I'd hoped. I have two quizzes and an article review due for Monday, so I still have time. It's hard to believe that there are only three weeks left in my summer courses! This summer is flying by way too fast, but that's still good. We are so relieved that by the end of this week we will definitely know Marshall's MOS (job assignment) which means that we will finally know where we will be moving come September. I cannot tell you how relieved/excited I am about this. We both really want to get away from this crazy city..traffic...and we both really really dearly want to be somewhere back in the South! (And Marshall just wants to be done with the stress that is TBS - as much as he may enjoy it at times - I'm sure!) Fingers crossed for the homeland :)

It is also almost AUGUST. Marshall pointed out earlier today that we've been married for almost a year! It seems like only yesterday we met/he asked me to dance at Daisy Duke's... He's also going to be gone sporadically for half of this next month, but the more he's gone on a FEX the closer to graduation it is!

We are so excited to get going on this next part of our life!!
