The Appalachian Mountains on the 4th

We spent the 4th of July (Thurs. - Sat.) in Ellijay, Georgia which is at the bottom end of the Appalachian Mountains. The start of the Appalachian Trail is not too far away from there. We stayed in this lovely house, which belongs to Steve's cousin Rebecca and her family. Steve's uncle Bill built the house. Now his Aunt and Uncle live in the little addition off to the side. We as a family had lots of fun. We went fishing (first picture Seth is holding a fish), rode 4 wheelers, played badmitton.

It is sad that we have lived here in South Carolina for 9 1/2 years and only 4 hours away is family of Steve's. We had fun getting reaquainted (Steve) and learning to know this family for the first time (the rest of us). They have a little boy Lane's age and an 18 month old little girl.

Rebecca: if you are reading this thanks for a wonderful time!
