Here is a short review of our time in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. Continue reading 4 Hours Exploring West Virginia with Kids!

While on the way to our furthest destination, Birmingham, Alabama, we passed through Knoxville, Tennessee.

Knoxville was a good place for a pitstop to grab a bite to eat and take a break. It also just so happened to be home to a drive-in pizzeria, the Pizza Palace! Continue reading Our Visit To A Drive-In Pizzeria- Pizza Palace in Knoxville, TN
