A Little Road Trip

We took a little road trip a couple of weeks ago to hang with our Dad while he was working out of town.  It was nice to get away from the boiling heat at home and climb above sea level for a few days.  It wasn't a very long road trip but the weather was much cooler.  And we got to take a dip in a super awesome river.  We don't have lots of pictures 'cause the roads are very winding and you can't just stop anywhere you want to take a picture.  And when you're driving, pretty much all you see is trees and more trees.  But, you've all probably seen pics of the Smoky Mountains, right?  If not, here ya go -

We did snag a couple of photos that made of think of our Esteemed Mayor Frankie Furter.  As you know, Frankie and his lovely wives, Ruby and Penny, are getting ready to celebrate their ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!   We saw this restaurant and thought it would be a perfect place to celebrate with a nice romantic dinner.



We think we discovered the place where Frankie may have found his beautiful Ruby.




We're still on the lookout for Penny mine (or even a copper mine).

Congrats to the three of you on your upcoming Anniversary!


Stay tuned for pics of our exciting White Water Adventure.

A white water adventure. We are so jealous. Well mom is. She has been white water rafting on the Ottawa River. It was so much fun. We are scared of water.
Thank you so much for thinking of us and the well wishes for our upcoming anniversary.
We are excited about our anniversary too.
Love Ruby & Penny

Gosh, I had no idea that Frankie and his wives had a history in the Smokey Mountains. How romantic!

Can't wait to see more pictures from your trip - especially river pictures, cause I love rivers!

Your pal, Pip

Where do you plan to go next? I admire people who usually go for an adventure and discover cinematic places like this! Where's the link to your white water adventure photos? It sounds fun and exciting!
