Wasington DC

I had a business trip in DC, so I brought SM along and he spent a night and day with his cousin Ryan. We got to stay in my hotel the next night and swim and have fun. Then we rode the METRO to the Mall and went to the Air and Space Museum. SM was in heaven.

he loved all the rockets. Though there was a definite lack of helicpoters. Well, they might have been there, but with two kids and a huge museum, we just couldn't spend hours looking.
We could hardly get them to smile together.
Sawyer driving a little cessna.

My sweet hotel. After the museum, the boys were racing down the sidewalk and R crashed and gashed his knee open. S carried him a block back to the museum where and then we were escorted through an underground maze to a nurse station.
No stitches, but he was still NOT happy about the whole situation. Poor R!

We had a fun quick trip and I am glad we did it. Who knows when we will be back on the East side again, thanks for having us S and not getting your car stolen.

Villa Rica Balloonless Hot Air Balloon Festival

It may have been too hot for the balloons to stick around, but there was some really cool tractors.

These are my favorite

One good thing about being out of town is that no one is picking my veggies (expept maybe the deer or something large that took some major chunks out of my red tomatoes) So while I have usually been grazing and getting one or two things a day, I cam home to a handful of yellow goodness.

Smokey Mountain National Forest

The next day we drove into the forest and hiked to a waterfall and had a good time. We went to go find a place to picnic and ended up getting rained out. Kids did remarkable well for a mile hike.


We packed up and drove out to Pigeon Forge, TN right after graduation and had a fun time. We had a great cabin close to the pool and stayed with Tad's brother and his family and Grandma and Grandpa. We went the first night to the Dixie Stamped, which was a fun horse show and dinner (with no silverware)The next day we went to Dollywood and had way more fun that I expected. They had plenty of little kids rides and I wish we would have had more time! We drove cars (SM's favorite) and rode some rides and got wet and had a lot of fun.

We were able to go on a couple big rides, they don't have a lot, and that is just fine with me. It was perfect!
