I Went Down Yonder on the Chattahoochee

Heading down the creek

So, I'm still a little confused by the fact that, despite living with the redneckery for two years, I chose to go to Georgia for vacation. On purpose. But I did. I'm also confused as to why I repeatedly choose outdoorsy, woodsy places for vacation when I'm clearly not an outdoor girl. But again, I did. I don't know why it didn't occur to me that the woods in Georgia in the middle of summer would be teeming with big, gnarly bugs that want to eat my face off. Also, the extreme humidity has left my hair looking like I walked straight out of a Def Leppard video.

We rented a gorgeous cabin up in the Blue Ridge/Smoky mountains. The cabin is in the woods with a creek running behind it.

We've been having a blissfully lazy week. Tubing in the creek, panning for gold and gems (this was originally a gold and ruby mining town) with colanders from the dollar store, sleeping late, watching cable (Oh HGTV, I've missed you), playing our nerd board games, roasting marshmallows, hiking to waterfalls, biking, hot-tubbing...just enjoying our vacation.

We've got a few more days to go, but I wanted to stop in, say hello, brag a little about being on vacation, and dump a bunch of pictures on you.

See you in a few days!

The whitest family ever. Avert your eyes or risk blindness.

Not so interested in tubing, but she'll stand there and splash for hours.

Burning Roasting hot dogs for dinner.

The screen porch, which I love.
