Birthday and Cherries

100_9801

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.

Daniel seems to be deep in thought.

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

The trees were loaded with cherries.

If you look closely in this picture, you will see a man in the top of the tree picking.

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.

Yesterday we met Dave, Jess and kids at Fairystone Park for a picnic and a fun day out.  We have lived here in Floyd for almost 13 years.  This state park is just about 40 minutes from our house.  I have no idea why we have never been to it before.   We all had a great time.  We had grilled chicken, mac and cheese, potato salad, pork and beans, and a green salad.  Delicious!!

Can you guess what we had for dessert?

While Dave, Jess, Daniel, Sam, Julie, and Grace spent all day in the water, Pawpaw and MawMaw had the “hard” job of watching Katie.  She sure is growing.

We all had a great time and definitely want to go again.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
