We were up early and headed to JB's for breakfast, and then on to visit some cousins that
Bri and I had never met before!
This is Aunt Maude's son and his wife-we had a wonderful visit with them!
We all found that we had so much in common!
After leaving their home, we headed to the Blue Ridge Parkway!
This was something that Briana and I really wanted to do--it was lovely!
Some of the "Mountain Laurel" was still in bloom (although we missed peak season)
God is so creative!
We couldn't resist a picture of this adorable church w/a mountain view!
After leaving the parkway, we headed over for a wonderful visit with some
more cousins :)
To our surprise(& delight!), they had a quilt square on their barn!
They had lovely flowers and gardens!
Alene fixed us Fried Apple Pies--YUM!
Aren't these mini donkey's cute!?
Such a lovely time visiting...sitting on the porch while a cool breeze blew
It reminded me of the old days when people did sit and visit on their front porch
The time flew and we had another visit to make...I'll make that part 2 :)
