#2, day and night

together again
family photo shoot
Me, EG, Brandon, LC, MK, MB, Beth, CA....CJ was sleeping
MB is my DIL's niece. I picked her up and she rode up to the mountains with me. Her grandparents came along later in the week.  The girls are 11, 10, 8, 6, 3 and the baby who was sleeping is 4 months. 

The cloud cover is rolling in over Clingman's Dome.  I stayed with the baby while the rest of the crew climbed to the highest point in the park. They said they were able to get a good view despite the clouds.

More later.....


  1. The Smoky Mountains are one of my all-time favorite places to visit. It takes 11 hours to get there from here but my husband and I try to go once a year. Nothing else like it on earth. I bet the Dome was FRIGID!! We usually go in late May and it's always freezing there at that time even though it's spring! Happy belated Thanksgiving!

  2. Lovely! What a cute family, too! I bet you had fun! Do turkeys taste better in mountain cabins? ;)

  3. What a fun group of "girlies" you get to hang out with! CUTE!

  4. What a wonderful family adventure Stevie! It must have been nice to be together for the Thanksgiving weekend! Your grandgirls are all os beautiful are very blessed!

  5. That is one lucky man to be surrounded by all those girls. I hope it was a fun weekend.

  6. Welcome back.;) Great picture of your family, absolutely lovely. Family is the most important thing in this life.;))
    I still remember the beauty of the Smoky Mountains, even though I only visited them a handful of times.;) So glad you had a great stay there during Thanksgiving.;))

  7. Enjoyed reading your blog. I live about one hour from the Smokey Mountains and I love the area!
