Snow Tubing, Massanutten, Virginia 3/4/2014

MARCH 4, 2014 (Tuesday)

 

Woke up to cold, snow, but nicer weather. It was in the 20’s all day but we had blue skies and it felt warmer.

We left around 1:30 PM to head to the tube park. What fun that is. Lexi and I went while Michael stayed below to take pictures. It was two-fer Tuesday so it cost us only $10.00 each for a two hour session. We went out the office after paying and walked up some stairs, then we got our tubes and went on the escalator to the top of the mountain. There are ten “lanes” of tubing and you pick which lane you want to be in and wait until it’s your turn. What a great time Lexi and I had. She went in saying she only wanted to do it once, but after the first one – she was hooked. Just too much fun. We did it five times. Loved it!

Clear and cold, but the pavement is dry.

Saw one lady slide so fast she crested the hill and bounced into the blue stop.  She was laughing hard.

After that we went back home to have linner, watch TV, and just chill out for awhile.  Pretty drive back, but then Lex ruined it at the resort with a snowball fight.  She took on both her parents and learned the lesson of starting a two front war.

Around 7:15 PM, we left to drive to the convention center for their Tuesday night magic show. Lovely drive with all the lights on the ski hills.

We missed the show last night because we were too afraid to drive because of the ice. We were told the show was good. The show tonight didn’t cost us anything because of our activities card. It would normally cost $10.00 each. There were free hor d’oeuvres and you could purchase drinks. The hor d’oeuvres were quite tasty. (They had olives, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, tomatoes, peroski, and bacon wrapped scallop.) The show started right at 8:00 PM. I thought he was good but Michael said it was the worse magic show he had ever gone to. It was geared to the younger crowd but it was fun.

We are now back “home,” and thinking about what we’re going to do tomorrow, making reservations for the Grand Ole Opry when we’re in Nashville, and trying to make plans with family near Nashville for a visit. That was our day. Hope yours was great!
