We arrived at the Shawnee Resort in The Appalachian Mountains last night for our annual travel group reunion. Minutes after we arrived I got stung in the stomach by a menacing wasp and spent the next few hours with ice on the sting. I still have no idea how I got stung -- especially on my stomach -- but dang did it hurt.
This morning we woke up to cloudy skies and rain -- and less wasp-sting pain -- but the resort has an inside pool so the girls and Eric swam while I read a magazine poolside.
It stopped raining in the late afternoon and we headed to nearby Portsmouth where we found a brewery that served great pizza!
After our late lunch we stopped at The Dairy Bar for ice cream before we heading back to the Resort and our first reunion event outside at the pool.
The girls were really excited to see their China cousins and we were thrilled to see their parents!
