Morning in the Mountains

Friday night Brent declared that if he stayed in the house all day Saturday he would go stir crazy. So we made plans to avoid that. We decided to take the boys to the mountains for a picnic. God gave us a perfectly beautiful fall day for our outing.

Here we are at the entrance to the park. The last time Brent and I were here, I was pregnant with Andrew. We came from Birmingham to Dahlonega for our babymoon. We stayed at a little cottage and on Saturday morning we drove over to Amicalola Falls for a picnic. Needless to say, we didn't hike up the 400+ stairs that day. We didn't hike them this trip either, but we had fun remembering our last visit to the Falls and thinking about how much has changed since then.

Heading over to the top of the falls to take in the view.

Jonathan was fascinated by the water going over the edge. He kept saying, "Oh no! Oh no!"

We walked down a few of the stairs as a family, then Brent took Andrew and Coleman a little farther on while Jonathan and I went back up.

Brent also took the boys over to the head of the Appalachian Trail. Andrew enjoyed telling me that they hiked on the AT.

There were too many leaves to pass up.

We unpacked our picnic in a nice sunny spot. I had planned for Jon Jon to sit in his stroller, but he wanted to eat on the quilt with everyone else.

After lunch, we were treated to a little kung fu demonstration.

We were home in time for naps. Have I mentioned how much we love where we live? It was a super Saturday.
