My Short Trip To The Mountains
Melody and I wore everyone out taking pictures. We even took pictures of each other taking pictures. We are crazy like that.
Joseph and William spent most of the afternoon talking farming and woodcutting. Oh, and motorcycles. That was a long topic between them that we couldn't interrupt to tell them to eat.
Megan spent a lot of time in the kitchen but boy was the food good! Hamburgers and hotdogs ended up being cooked inside but they were still yummy. Baked beans, mac n cheese, several kinds of chips, chili, slaw and brownies made everyone have a full tummy.
Z has grown so tall! He is only 13 but way taller than me. Love his sense of humor. He has the best comeback answers that sometimes land him in a little trouble with his parents but still make you laugh.
All of us girls sat around and talked after we ate. Pop Pop took the boys fishing and Megan and I took the girls to Fun Factory. The fishing went well for an hour then a big storm came in and fishing was done for the evening. Since I hadn't seen the grands in a long time they all stayed the night with me at Megan's except W. He went home with Melody and Joseph, Baby E and Brother J. We were going to stay up watching movies all night but this grandma bailed out at 10:30 and they stayed up till 4:30AM! We got everyone up Sunday morning and I took the grands to Melody's and picked up Rusty. He had spent the weekend with W and Z's cat and baby kittens. Visited with Melody for a little while then it was time to hit the road. We hope to go back next month so we can see Q play in one of his games.
But I got to see my family and my beautiful NC mountains! I was very blessed. The weather was so nice and cool that I wore long sleeves all day. I slept so peaceful under a blanket and quilt. Just love that mountain air.
