From Instagram: Spotting the waterfalls.

love fall! The fresh, crisp air. The apples. The pumpkins. The leaves changing. All of it!

This week we took a morning off school to head to one of our very favorite fall destinations: Blackwater Falls in Davis, West Virginia. Sean and I stumbled across it on our honeymoon, and when we moved to our current home, we started making it a regular day trip in the fall (it’s also very near the ski resort where we ski in the winter, but we haven’t yet taken a winter trip!). I’m not sure we’ve done it every year, but our 11-year-old referred to it as “the 9th annual trip to the waterfalls,” which I love!
