Whew! Part 1

What a month!! Birthday season has struck here at the homeplace! Starting July 12th through yesterday we have had 4...count them 4! TG was 7/12 (in Iowa!), mine 7/23, Skippy 7/30 and Red's 8/11! Now we get a break until December!

Yes that's me...I turned the big 5-0...don't tell anyone!! I had a nice little party with family and then one in Savannah the Saturday afterwards. It was great! And yes I did get my hair cut! But more about that later!!

Skippy turned the big 1-6! Driver's license coming in the next week when we get home!
We celebrated both mine and his birthday with a trip to Helen, Ga. That was fun! Helen is a little town in Northeast Georgia that was reinvented in the 60's to look like a Germany alpine village. All the buildings look like chalets...even Wendy's! We played tourist...Skippy and his parents went on a Zip Line adventure while mom and I discovered the town one morning. On Friday we took the Blue Ridge Scenic Railroad train trip to the Georgia/Tennessee border. There we had lunch and did a little shopping!

We rented a cabin right outside of Helen for 5 days on the side of a mountain...with a hot tub (that Skippy LOVED). We all had a great time and can't wait to get back up there and breathe the cool mountain air!
Stay tuned for Part 2!

  1. Ah - let them eat cake! Luckily, we have our birthdays (the 5 of us) evenly distributed: March, June, Dad and Katie in September, and December. I'll bet those "aprons and more" came in handy!
