Today we celebrated my Julie’s 14th birthday. My, my, how time has flown by. Seems like just the other day, my Lord was surprising me by giving her to me. God is SO good. We celebrated at Groundhog Mountain with hamburgers, hotdogs and chocolate cake. The Horn’s came with us and Dave, Jess and the kids met us on the Blue Ridge Parkway at Meadows of Dan. We had a wonderful day!!

Mrs. Vicki bringing trucks for the boys to play with. You will notice she has on a jacket. It was kinda chilly here this morning. 42 degrees when we got up. I think it is supposed to be about that chilly tonight too. It was a nice day though-definitely not too hot.

From the picnic area, we went on down the Parkway to Levering Orchard to pick cherries.

We all had so much fun. I can’t think of a better way to spend the day than with family and best friends. Enjoy your day and God bless.

  1. Today was so much fun. Lunch was very good. Thanks for the burgers. I canned our cherries and got 17 pints. They don’t even have to be put into the freezer. I am not trusting Quentin’s and Madison’s canning knowledge anymore. 🙂

    Jess, you are welcome. I am glad they like them. All three of your babies are adorable!

    Oh yeah, you know I am loving that pic of me. 🙂

  2. Happy Birthday, Julie! It looks like a wonderful day. Can’t believe the cherries are ready now.

    Have a wonderful evening with your family.
