We had a great time at the festival. Karen is pictured blowing her lungs out while plying the Alpine Horn.
Katie Beth had her first candy apple and it was tasty according to her. We thought it was mighty red given the color of Katie Beth’s face.
We had fun visiting Ms. Grace at the Home Depot booth while Katie Beth built a chalkboard door hanger. Ms. Grace even slipped us bird house kit to build at home. She is so sweet.
The liters of beer were tasty as always to Karen and I. The VIP area was awesome and thanks to The Nook for the passes.
Katie Beth is growing up fast. The hair is back to being very long and she doesn’t want it cut.
She is enjoying her new school and making many new friends. She is excited to be playing on the school’s soccer team and seeing old classmates on the other teams.
Karen, Katie Beth, and I are ready for Walt Disney World.
Our bags are packed and we are ready to go!
We are looking forward to relaxing.
Katie Beth had a blast with her American Heritage Girl camping trip. It was the end of the year family camping trip with many families attending.
Everyone had a blast. We went to the Von Braun Planetarium on Friday night. Saturday, we went on a hike and had a lot of fun. Everyone had a great time playing on Monte Sano State Park
Today, we had a fun time attending Terry and Aaron’s wedding in the Tannehill State Park.
You can see all the photos we took here. Remember, the username and password are “friends” and “photos”.
Katie Beth was excited to have won 1st place in the Diocesan Art Show for 2nd Grade collage category.
Her art teacher was very proud of her.
We made a trip to Chattanooga,Tennessee. It was Katie Beth’s first visit to the Tennessee Aquarium.
Katie Beth enjoyed the day. She thought the paddlefish swimming with their mouths open looked freaky. I will have agree with her.
Katie Beth would like to go back so she can revisit the Creative Discovery Museum, which we visited a few years ago.
I expect we will be going back soon.
Katie Beth and I had a great time trying to fly a kite with the sporadic wind.
The weather was just awesome.
This spring break has so much fun, but pace is a bit much.
The days started out with a trip to Unclaimed Baggage in Scottsboro, Alabama. We scored some books, Easter decorations, and a memory card. It is always a fun visit as you never know what you will find.
After a great lunch on the square at Payne’s Sandwich Shop and Soda Fountain, we headed to DeSoto State Park for some hiking.
We stopped in the Country Store & Information Center to get some hiking ideas and determine camping details for a future trip.
We enjoyed a short 3 mile hike alone the Blue and Orange trails to the Laurel Falls, Indian Falls, and Lost Falls.
You can see more photos of the hike here.
We kicked off Spring Break with a hike in Monte Sano State Park to the Stone Cuts Trail. The bicycle ride up Bankhead Parkway put the burn in our leg muscles for sure.
Katie Beth had great time climbing the rocks at Stone Cuts.
After hiking, we headed to Monte Sano playground for Katie Beth to have to time with other children.
The ladies had fun zooming down Bankhead Parkway to end our trek.
