rollin', rollin', rollin...rawhide

This is a picture from the top of Amicalola Falls, one of my favorite places to visit.  We enjoyed a nice day at the falls with Nana, Papa Doug and my sister-n-law and her family.  Nana made a feast for lunch and the kids enjoyed jumping off muddy river banks and tip-toeing across the rocks.

If you know Bryar, you can probably already imagine why she's stripped down to her sassy pants.  Hint: She doesn't know what the words stop, don't and watch out mean.  LOL

There are just somethings that you don't see everyday.  One of them is this! 
Yep, a buckboard wagon train.  Seriously?
When we were on our way from my mother-n-laws house crossing over some winding mountain roads (which led to Bryar giving a big heave-hoe in the car) on our way to Tennessee when out of nowhere, wagons!  I'm not talking about just a wagon or two, or six.  I'm talking about somewhere in the neighborhood of twenty to thirty wagons.

It was pretty cool to see them ride by.  However, this dude, he was a bit scary. 

Oh, and check out the new and improved seats in this wagon.  Too funny!

I was way more than a happy camper when I saw roads signs appear for the highway.  I felt like I had been trapped in Radiator Springs!  LOL  But, when we pulled into our hotel in Tennessee and saw this...

the trip was SOOOOOO worth it!

Love the blog redesign. :)

Oh and isn't Wilderness at the Smokies the best! We went there for Spring break and the kids had a blast.

Thanks for the compliment Lisa! Yes, I think I could have just stayed on the lazy river all day. My kind of relaxin'!
