Hellooooo! Did you miss me??

I missed all of you.

And I missed writing.

Isn't that funny - I really wanted to know everything you all were up to. And I wanted to tell you all what we were up to..

So I will...

Pretty trip in - blue skies and no traffic... but no garage sales on the way. poo..

The week-end seemed to go so fast ...

We had this wonderful "welcome" sign..Emily made it for us..what a fun and pretty thing to do!

Birthday cakes, new watches with "numbers" (no digital for Emily) and. of course, the 8 spankings....



Breakfast at a place in the mountains where the pancakes are as big as your head....no really...look..and, all I ate was.....one...



Chris, Emily and April had a great time...


The handsome and amazing Mr. B, wondering why he ordered enough food for two...



The place we ate at had really cute signs everywhere...






Playing in the park...








Parade of Homes....did you know they don't "parade" at all??...

Oh..no.......You gotta walk to them......parade my a--and,on one of the hottest days...

There were sooo many people, we had to "walk" with teensy-tiny-little steps...looked like a bunch of Geisha's walking in single-file...but the homes were, ah at $2 million, amazing!!









Time for a cool shower - in a "shower" that was about the size of my whole bedroom!!






Oh yeah, and act natural....like you live here.....yeah...right....

The art work and wall treatments were nothing short of amazing...

...and as soon as I find where I uploaded those to, I'll show you that.

Oh, and the "Wild Hogs" party we went to!!

For now, it's off t bed..work is calling my name and I won;t answer the call until I get my ...ah...beauty sleep...

I missed ya..I really did :)
I am so glad you made it home
safely and that you had a nice trip.

Those homes are amazing but I really
couldn't see myself living in one. Could
you imagine having to clean a house
that big! Oh, I guess I would have
a maid if I could afford a house like
that right? Hehe.

So glad you are back ~ Kimme

Looks like the pancakes at the Apple Barn in Sieverville, TN. 1 is a complete meal. Glad you had a such a good time...so much fun visiting with the grandkids.
We spent the weekend wondering if Gustav was going to blow us away. Bite the bullet and only got rain and winds....had a mini pond in the back yard.

Looks like a good time was had by all....like the Alan Jackson song

G with an O..O with an D... T with an I..M with an E..

GOOD TIME....
