We are back from our mountain mini-vacation. We enjoyed beautiful weather and scenery and fun family time. The drive was a bit long for my idea of a vacation (I'm more of a two-hour beach drive vacation kind of girl)! Anna Clare was an excellent traveler, especially considering our portable DVD player blew a fuse less than an hour after we left the house! Owen did as well as a 17-month-old could do. We had a couple of hours of constant screaming, but we picked up a book on CD at Cracker Barrel that helped drown her out. Perhaps that's why she was screaming....
The Griswold's are off! (My sister wanted to ride with us, so we left the 3rd seat in and borrowed the luggage carrier!)
First of many, many stops
We are here!!! I think Owen heard someone say the words "car seat!"
A quick stop for a picture on the way up the mountain during our "family hike"
The waterfall at the top...halfway there!
My brother, Scott, my sister, Erin, and AC
The girls with my mom and my dad (the real Clark W. Griswold)
And the real highlight of the trip...
My brother, Dave got engaged to his girlfriend, Jaime! They went on their own hike (their hike was 13 miles compared to our two and a half mile). He asked her to marry him at the top of the mountain and she said "YES!" We love Jaime and could not be happier! They want to get married next fall in the mountains! Guess that beach trip will have to wait till the next year:)
