Let's see, we left off with a visit with the Mees July 16. The next day we left their home and drove to Pigeon Forge to meet up with Mom and Dad Garner and the Talley cousins. The next three days we enjoyed our first group family vacation and had lots of fun in our cabin, its hot tub, Ripley's Aquarium and Dollywood. Wish I could share some of the 140 fun pictures (mostly of the five cousins), but alas those are no more.
Sunday we drove home to SC with Lane and Patrick, arriving in time for our evening service at Heritage. Abigail loved having a big brother and sister for a week and Julia was busy as mommy to three. Visits to the zoo and park and such filled our mornings.
Monday of the following week, we drove Lane and Patrick to Alabama and stayed overnight at Talitha's. Tuesday evening we were back in Georgia for a night at Mom and Dad Garner's - so that we could fly out of Atlanta the next morning for California! To be continued. . .
