Lovely Mountain Weekend

We had a short but wonderful weekend at our mountain place in Laurel Springs, North Carolina. Lots of son Bryson and my two grandchildren--- in fact, I think there were twelve grandchildren all together between my sister and her sister-in-law and me. And look who I got to cuddle and admire for the first time...two week old baby Ragen!

Lily and Avery played outside all day, and enjoyed getting dirty and climbing hills.

It was opening day of trout season, and the creek had been stocked. Almost everyone caught their limit. The prize of the day went to my nine-year old great-niece Hunter, who pulled in a huge trout that is destined to be mounted. I have never seen such a big one- must be a granddaddy!Although the seasons are usually several weeks behind us in the mountains, there were definite signs of spring, including the daffodils I planted along the driveway.

And look what the bluebirds have been up to! We put up bluebird house last summer, and they have already started their brood.

They better be sitting on those eggs tonight, because it is supposed to snow again!
