My parents moved to Western North Carolina last August. Even though we are living in the same state again they pretty much could not live any further from us, about seven hours. Luckily it is a straight drive but man is that a long time to be in the car by yourself. Twice in one week. I packed up the Rylie Girl and made my way to the mountains. Man was it gorgeous..

|The stream in the backyard|
|Rylie girl had to see what I was doing...|
|Down the street... aka mountain|
|Pups lounging on the deck|
|Rylie meeting Buddy, my brother's bunny. She was cute for a few minutes then got overly curious and barked so we put him away.|
|She also bugged the crap out of Dippy. See the tongue sticking out!? Blatant!|
|Pup and I at the bottom|
|Rylie had to be in front. Always.|
|Stefan and the Pup|
|A little further to go|
|Stefan and Rylie near the top with super hikers|
|Love this picture of her! SO cute.|
|Dad wasn't thrilled with her cute begging skills, but he gave her strawberry tops anyway|
|Rylie, me, Mom and Stefan|
|Going back down|
|Hikers at the top|
|Shhh, he is sleeping!|
|He woke up!|
|I zoomed in for these shots. You cannot get close (and HELLO, WILD animals!) without a major fine. Or getting attacked.|
|Baby Elk! Their mom's leave them in the tall grass but are never too far away.|
|That is a lot of antlerage.|
|Entrance to the Parkway|
|At the restaurant|
|The road we drove on to get to it!|
|As you can see the clouds rolled in. Most of dinner we had a great view and then BOOM. Inside a cloud.|
|In the cloud|
|In the cloud and not looking so ghostly.|
The weekend was spent getting our house situated (furniture arrived!) and finally moving in to our master bedroom. We also saw Snow White and the Hunstman (hated the ending, so blah), got some more furniture, and finished How I Met Your Mother on Netflix.We NEED season seven! Ugh! Can't find it anywhere (actually think it is still airing or just finished). We definitely need a new show to watch! I have been to the doctor, the dentist and all over the place so I am glad this is finally written. I will write soon with picture updates on the house and everything.
Thanks for sticking with me!
And Happy Birthday Mom (: Love ya!
