Another Mountain Wedding

We had a successful trip to beautiful Asheville, NC last weekend. The kids were very good in the car for a five-hour trip! We stayed with Charlie's sister Lee and her family, who were all quite taken
with their little cousins from South Carolina. I don't think they had ever met two-year old Lily!

It was less than an hour's drive to the wedding, which was at a cabin in Maggie Valley. There was even a little garage cabin for their Gator that was cute as a doll house.

I liked the wood floors, stone fireplace, and check out the bar chairs made of burled wood. What a beautiful setting for a wedding! There was a creek running along the side of the property. The bridal procession walked along the creek and over the bridge to a shady side yard. Charlie's brother Richard provided the sound system. There was a Western theme for the whole wedding, including the cake.After a short carriage ride through the valley, the bride and groom returned for a nice reception and some dancing. The children were quite taken with this beautiful, well-manned horse. That's Uncle Beattie, Lee's husband, lending a welcome hand with my grand-kids. The little ones climbed trees and got in the creek.
Our granddaughter, Lily, met Grady's granddaughter, Jada, for the first time. They almost look like sisters, except one has big blue eyes and one big brown eyes!
Today it is raining non-stop. Grandma "Gigi" took the kids to Wal-Mart and loaded up on kid food and things we can play in the screen porch or garage. Better get back to my babysitting!
