On this wet/gloomy Mother's Day, I am thankful for my little family. Thankful that we had a nice day yesterday (amid the rain drops) at the air show (taking 400+ pictures!). I am sitting here waiting to leave for church and have already done... dishes, cleaned up the house and started laundry...and it's only 930am! It seems we really never take a day off! :)

Mother's day was a lovely day spent with my 2
favorite guys...at an airshow. Somehow it ended up
being a day for them...but we had a great time. I
did wake up to some hand made "notes" from Hunter.
One on the computer, one on the couch and one by
the coffee maker. And the kicker was that he got
up about 430am to make them and then went back
to bed! So sweet!
These are a mix of pictures that Maison and I took. Although
his were better of the Thunderbirds, because he had the
camera with the longer lens! Punk! (I was pretty impressed
with his shots though!) I may blow several of them up for
Christmas gifts! ;)
You can see the tiny plane up by the right ear!

Not a bad location for "free" seats! And under a big
shade tree to boot!
I wouldn't have traded this day for anything!

Mother's Day always seems to come and go without a lot of fanfair around here. This year it snuck up on me after having been gone the week before. Wednesday afternoon, it dawned on me that it was this coming Sunday...not a lot of time to do much. But I was asked on Thursday what I wanted for Mother's day. "Nothing" was my response. I'd rather not spend the money when I've got everything I need. Then it dawned on me, after the last week, I did want something...$20 in gas. His look was priceless. I wanted T.I.M.E. for Mother's Day. Family time.
Here is our time...in pictures.
Here is our time...in pictures.
Our first hill...11:47am
Coming up on our first waterfall... .3 miles in...so far so good!
The trail to Suter Falls...Thomas and one
of the boys are already headed over...almost
in the middle of the picture. It really gives
you great perspective on size. (You can
click on any picture to enlarge it.)
I think the bridge was someone's ladder, pieced together!
Such a cutie...
Suter Falls...other side of the bridge
Questions, questions, questions...
Rocks and boulders galore!
Not just a flat path!
We came upon several caves...time to investigate!
Someone had made a fire pit inside. Not sure
that's allowed anywhere other than the
primitive camping sites.
Horsepound Falls 2.5 miles in...and we've
got to turn around and head back!
He's always looking for critters!
We made it back out 5 hours later...tired, sore and out of water!
Hunter asked if he could fill up his water bottle in the creek...
I said no, it would make you really sick...he said...
"It would sooo be worth it!" :)
Still .3 miles to go...ughhh...
last picture @ 3:47pm out of park at 4:50pm!
It's a really good thing that we went on Saturday, because when Sunday rolled around, we were too tired/sore to do anything! I really hate that some of the pictures were kind of dark, but it was so bright out that it's really hard to take "good" pictures. I did salvage some of them via Photoshop at least, but we will mark this set of falls off our 617 TN waterfalls list. We DON'T need to go back! :) On a side note, the map said this trail was "moderately difficult"...I really think they need to take "moderately" out of that statement!!
What a beautiful weekend we were blessed with!
