Our Georgia Trip

You know it is a busy summer when I can't keep up with my blog posts! After school got out in June, time has been flying by and I am way behind, but I promise to catch up sooner or later.

On June 18, 2014, The boys and I hit the road and headed to Georgia to visit our family and have a little vacation. We were there 18 days total and we had the time of our lives. Eric was able to join us for 10 days as well. It was a great trip for the boys. They got to spend a lot of time with their cousins and explore the waterfalls, rivers and mountains of Northern Georgia.

The weather was hot and humid, so we spent four days at the rivers while we were down there. I hiked the Tallulha Falls Gorge with my sister in law, we visited Black Rock State Park, did a day trip to Gatlinburg, TN and drove through The Great Smoky Mountains. We visited five waterfalls, did some shopping and even took the boys to their first movie theatre movie. We went to a place called Goats on the Roof - where there are really Goats on a Roof, we saw the 4th of July parade and fireworks too. The trip was crazy, busy and amazing. We had a wonderful trip and made countless memories. I wish I could share the hundreds of pictures I have because they are all beautiful and unique in their own way, but I can't so I will share some of my favorites.

 Well that is our trip. I hope you enjoyed the pictures as much as we enjoyed the experience.

**One thing I don't have a photo of is the moment I almost tipped my sister in law's truck over in a ditch. I have to note this moment because it was so funny - but you had to be there. I was on a side street turning around, backed up too far, the back end got in the ditch and the truck began to tip. I screamed, hit the gas, squealed the tires and flew out of the ditch. All my sister in law Tappatha said in the most serious voice was "Nice recovery" then we busted out laughing.**

Happy 4th Birthday Alex and Evan!!!!
You have changed our life in ways we never thought possible. Watching you grow, change, explore and become who you are is so amazing.  It has been such a blessing to have not only two sons, but twin sons. Time is going fast so we are trying to enjoy every moment we have with you before the time is gone. We have so many wonderful memories already in these four years. Thank you for making us a family and for making our life complete. We love you very much!

Today was a fun filled birthday. I took the boys to Chuck E. Cheese and we met up with their friends Blake and Casey. Tonight we took them to dinner at Rainforest CafĂ© and they had a ball. I can't believe they are 4!

On Friday July 18, 2014 Alex and Evan's Grandparents came over to celebrate with them. We got a cake and they opened some presents. Here are the photos from that.
