North Carolina Mountain State Fair

 We had a fun time going north to the fair. Garrett loved looking around at everything on Jeff's shoulders.
 We watched some classy wrestling. I now have respect for those guys on TV. 
 Rode down the slide, fair tradition.
Looked at Little Sebastian.
And enjoyed some food.

Labor Day Weekend

A T L A N T A , G E O R G I A 

We went to Turner field to watch the Braves play.

Tasted 30 different coke products from around the world at the Coke factory. 
The Beverly from Italy = B.O. in liquid form

 Ate lunch at the Varsity. SO good. If you ever want a good local place to eat in Atlanta, this is it.
Did some people watching. 

 Went to the top of Stone Mountain

Watched the laser show and fireworks. Garrett LOVED the fireworks.

And tracked down my old house in Duluth

My parents brought me here when I was a kid and I remembered I loved it, so it's been on my list of places I wanted to visit while we are living in the south. Helen is a cute little town with lots of little shops, tubing and tasty German food. We forgot our swimsuits, so we'll have to float down the river another time. 


Preston, Jeff's brother, had a layover in Charlotte, NC, so we drove up to see him and hung out for the day. We got some breakfast at the Waffle House, had fun at the Nascar Hall of Fame, and enjoyed looking at the buildings downtown. We didn't have a ton of time, but it was nice to catch up and see a familiar face.

Kylee's Visit

C H I M N E Y  R O C K 
We were lucky enough to have Kylee for a couple of days after my family went home, so we climbed the stairs to chimney rock and hiked around on some of the other trails around the area. It was fun seeing her and spending time together.
