Fun day, beautiful weather, and great company!

Today was a great day! We have had beautiful weather this week and fall is in the air!! I love fall, it's my favorite season.

We had a friend stop and stay with us last night as he was passing through so Lee took the day off. We all got up and went to breakfast at Cracker Barrel (where Chris had grits, sawmill gravy, and okra for the first time ever-obviously he's not from the south) and then took Chris on a tour of the city. After we dropped him off to be on his way, we still had some time to kill so Lee and I decided to tour Vulcan. I have lived here my whole life and don't remember ever going out there. The weather was great and the view was incredible...the company wasn't too bad either! :) I put Henry in the baby bjorn and he hung out and enjoyed the scenery and the sun. We boarded the elevator and headed up to get a close-up of the largest iron cast sculpture in the world. Lee does not do heights but we've been to the Seattle Space Needle so we figured it would be about the same....NOT! We rode up in a glass elevator and stepped out onto a steel bridge/walkway THAT YOU COULD SEE THROUGH! It was quite scary to look down and see the ground below....way below! Needless to say we did a quick trip around the statue and quickly headed down. On the way home we stopped for ice cream. It was a perfect end to a perfect afternoon.

nice view!

Not too sure about this!!

The sacrifices we make for family photo ops! Notice the metal grate the floor the overlook has!

Don't look down, don't look down!!

Save of solid ground! Note H's new trick: holding his arm up and out, he started that last night :)

Now we are waiting for Henry's cousin Summer to be born! Amanda Lee's sister went in tonight to be induced so hopefully Henry and the rest of us can meet her tomorrow. We are all very excited!! Please say a prayer for Amanda and Summer have a safe and easy delivery!

  1. Looks like fun, I haven't been to vulcan in years. We talked about taking Emma not long ago, we might have to do that.
