See Gatlinburg: Free River Shots


Since we travel a lot, we know we have to save every little penny somewhere in order to see and do everything we want to when out and about. This spot is a favorite of mine right past the bypass sign after going through the city of Gatlinburg. It's a small pull off that you will pass quickly if you are not looking for it. Don't worry if you pass it, just turn around. 

You walk a couple of steps past your car down a small hill and you are brought to a beautiful creek with a bridge that crosses to the other side. Be careful the rocks are slippery. Best part: It is free and you get really nice shots to share with your friends and family on your blog, twitter, facebook and instagram





I am working on getting more of the photos from our latest trip together. Douglas is at a yearbook camp on the University of Richmond's campus until Thursday and she has the waterproof camera with the fun water shots on it.

Little Bits of the Past

This picture showed up in my Facebook feed and it makes me feel as if the kids are growing too fast! I miss when Douglas wasn't working every night and driving a car (but still loving some Mountain Dew it seems). I miss when Sage and Ava were so tiny and both only wanted to sleep downstairs in the basement on the couch so they could be closer to their sister. This was a week when my best friend from Nashville came to visit. Her kids are Jayden, the one pouting and Parker on the scooter. 

Time flies gals, guys. One day you are spoon feeding your baby and then they are driving you around.

Because We Love the Lake



















We went to lake this weekend with the friends we went to Snowshoe with this past weekend. Unfortunately Douglas had to work so she stayed with my mom in town and did just that. We headed down after girls were through with school for the year and popped into Bojangles for the Bo Time Box. Put the boat in and I watched Joe speed off in it only to later have it poop out on us. Luckily we were able to use the pontoon boat but its not the same. Saturday we spent all day on the water and at the beach. We had a nice dinner of lasagna, asian salad and bread dripping in butter. Sunday we went back out for awhile, towed the boat and headed home. I love weekends.

What Sage Wore












Here is the big reveal! Sage looked amazing and she was even smiling. Also she was out of her usual all black attire. I think she wants to be Jade from Victorious. I was in charge of drop off and pick up and then they finished the night off at the movies watching Insidious 3. 

Today Sage graduates from middle school and I'm sure we'll do lunch somewhere. Hope your Monday is perfect!

Formal Shopping






Sage is attending her first formal tomorrow and we started shopping yesterday. Found absolutely nothing in Williamsburg. This town has NO preteen clothes. I am shocked at what some stores sell for teens---skank. So in the rain and wind, we drove to the Patrick Henry Mall in Newport News and did a little shopping. I of course needed a quick selfie.

Can you guess the one she picked?

Sage Turned 14


She was holding her dad's beer and did this. She is crazy!



















We again went to Buggs Island for Sage's birthday. This year she turned 14! Where does time go? We spent the weekend on the water, roasting marshmallows, trying to avoid ticks, riding on the golf cart and of course eating at Pino's! Fun time! So excited Summer is HERE!
