Just returned from 11 action packed days in the Western NC Mountains.  While cooler, this year it was too hot for campfires and jackets.  We managed to introduce the Things to whitewater rafting (to quote: “We’re gonna diiiiiiiiiieee!”) and the Cherokee Reservation.

The Smoky Mountains never disappoint, and we even got a full rainbow, that for a brief few seconds became a full double rainbow.  All I could think about is how I wished I had some of what he had while enjoying it.

Now, it’s time shake the Mica from our shoes.  There’s lots of laundry, weeding and general catching up to do….and it’s sweltering out.
