This month started out very contemplative. My mom, the girls and I went to a local labyrinth walk for a picnic. It was beautiful there and the kids really enjoyed a little creek they had in their “fairy garden”. :o)
Jason was entered into a pie eating contest! He eats lunch every day in the cafeteria with his co-workers and they are forever commenting on how he is always the first one done. During hospital week the employees organized the contest and Jason one by half an ounce! (they weighed each pie before and then weighed them again after the three minute timer was up) Jason is very blessed to work for an amazing company that takes good care of its employees and they are lucky to have him as well. :o)
My Aunt Carrie and her husband Edd came to visit. They were passing through on a fun little road trip and stopped to stay a few days with us. We were happy to see them! We took a few hikes, one of them was to Wayah Bald. It has a great view as well as an old lookout tower.
We had a great time exploring and enjoying the beautiful weather.
One of our favorite things to do when we all get together is play games. We love Uno and I talked them into playing a game I got for Christmas, Quelf. This game is hilarious! Here you see Carrie, with a toilet paper mask and necklace, all part of the game! Haha! Sorry for the blurriness, I sneaked this picture on my phone. :o)
For Jason’s sister Amber’s birthday the “kids” all got together and went white water rafting. We always go to the same place, Paddle Inn, on the Nantahala River. We had a great time!
It seems that we were very busy last month, but we enjoyed spending time with our families.
