~ Our little field trip ~

Last week my sister and I, along with Papaw David and Nana took a field trip down to the beautiful Morrow Mountain State Park.   This is something we have been wanting to do for a while but the weather has just been too hot.  Had a wonderful time.....took a picnic lunch.....did a little hiking.....toured the museum....spent quite a bit of time by the lake searching for clam shells and pretty stones.....took lots of pictures and just enjoyed being together.  I know.....I know.....I am guilty of not taking enough time out for fun days like this one....nothing like spending time with the ones you love most and letting the cousins hang out together.   Several of the grandchildren are old enough to be working so we ended up with 8 out of 15 going with us......a good sized crowd :). We even sang "Happy Birthday" to Miss Kiley!!!  Enjoy the pics :)

 Sorry for the picture overload :)  Thank you for stopping by:)

~ Our little weekend getaway ~

Yes, we finally pulled it off!!!  We slipped away for a whole weekend! We headed towards Boone, NC to relax a little and celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary.... And yes, there were children in tow (5 of them to be exact)...haha... but it wouldn't have been nearly as much fun alone :)   Weather was a little damp and rainy the first day but that didn't keep us from sightseeing... snapping pictures... fishing....hiking....shopping....eating.... journaling and part of the time just doing absolutely nothing!!! We were able to see Hannah for just a skinny minute on Friday... A good time was had by all :)
