Spring Break


Last week was Spring Break for the schools here in our area so with Sweet Hubby and Dear Son free for a week we packed up and headed North to Tennessee where my Husband's parents own a cabin near the Great Smoky Mountains. Since Sweet Hubby was also celebrating his 40th, his whole family came and we were able to spend the week together.

This is Round Top Mountain, where the cabin is located~

On Monday it started to snow and by Tuesday morning there was a good 3 to 4 inches covering everything.


My son and I took a little hike up the mountain after the snow. Everything was so beautiful and he had a blast eating the snow....



Posing in front of Mossy Rocks~ we both have a thing for moss covered rocks:-)



He set to work making a snow sculpture. Sometimes he would press too hard when adding another handful of snow and a part would crack or fall off. He didn't get mad, he just mended and went right on shaping it. He must have worked on this for at least 15- 20 minutes. He really enjoyed himself, and was very proud of his creation.




He also thoroughly enjoyed splashing through the little creek that ran down the side of the Mountain.





We took the ducks to the cabin with us. They had a good time swimming in a different tub and they got to meet some new friends....



My little Nephew was very excited by all of the splashing and swimming:-)


We also had a big party for my Husband's 40th Birthday.

We dressed him up in full party attire. Gave him some fun gifts.

Baked him a Boston Creme Pie.


And generally enjoyed ourselves. Laughing, eating, and soaking up the good time with the people we love.

It was a wonderful week~Rhonda

Looks like a great time was had by all! Your little boy reminds me so much of my second son. He loved the great outdoors (still does) and all living things, great and small. Mine had blond hair, too...

That looks wonderful! I won't be taking any trips for awhile with all these animals to take care of. How do you like the ducks? We are thinking about getting a few.

The scenery there is beautiful, but looks sooo cold still. I imagine it's beautiful in the summer and the fall, and the winter. It must be a very special place, especially when the family is all together. The duckies are sure growing fast!

I just found your site on Bittersweet Punkin and thought I would stop in and say, "hello." What do you know... I'm a girl who grew up on a No. Georgia farm! My people are from LaFayette! I enjoyed your blog, especially your beekeeping stuff.

How wonderful to have a mountain retreat to share with family! Looks like your son and hubby had a great time. Your little ducklings are growing quickly. Glad you had an enjoyable spring break. Looks like you made some fond memories.

Happy Spring!
