Details from New Years 2010

After visiting some relatives for Christmas 2009, Scott and I spent a few days in Alexandria, VA to ring in the new year. It was the coldest I have ever been in my entire life. I was dressed in layer after layer, but the wind chill factor was below zero. Needless to say, it was a trip to remember!

We also took the Metro into Washington, DC to see some sites.
Most of these pictures were taken at a wax museum.

We made a stop in Fredericksburg, VA on the way home!

Hillsville, VA 2010 Labor Day Weekend Flea Market

We usually attend the annual Hillsville, VA Labor Day Weekend Flea Market. The VFW in Hillsville has been holding this event for 43 years. It has grown to 700 vendors and 1600 spaces. The entire town is open and rented or used for this event. The VFW building itself holds a gun show. I was originally introduced to this event by my great uncle who formerly traded guns and knives.

Fall Football

Scott and I attended two Wake Forest Football Games in September: Wake vs. Prebyterian and Wake vs. Duke. During the 1st game, Wake won by about 40 points, but it was still fun to be in the stands and seeing the action in person. During the Wake vs. Duke game, it was quite a close game, but Wake still won, despite the rain! (Yes, we got soaked!)
