Our Last Full Day

Sunday... much more relaxed.

We had breakfast and headed off to church, but not before snagging a few pictures (of course).

Here's Kristiina in her new dress from Old Navy giving me... what else?... a belly shot!

Gotta love the self-timer!

My precious girl.

After church and a quick change of clothes we opted to have lunch at The Daily Grind in downtown Murphy. Come to find out, 99% percent of the shops and restaurants are closed on Sunday. (Note to self for future reference.) Hmmmm, what now? We decided on a pizza buffet. Very so-so, but at least we were full.

Today's adventure ...mild adventure... would take place at Vogel State Park in Blairsville, GA. It was a longer drive than I expected (it had been recommended, but I hadn't visited it yet), but that long drive was such a pretty one that we didn't mind.

We sat on a swing for a while and just enjoyed the lake view.

She got out the big lens to capture a dragonfly. Beautiful!

My girl doing her thing!

Beautiful lake for fishing and swimming.

Oh! What's this?! We walked around the entire lake and at one end, found a short path to a waterfall!

It was a nice aftrenoon, and now...

Time to call it a day!

Awww...Pammy, why do I feel like crying?? Guess I'm wishing Momma had more time with her sweet daughter! Realistically, all great things do eventually come to an end....thankfully, it's only temporary!!

What a precious weekend! Kristiina is lovely; I've said it before, I'll say it again...she should be a model for maternity magazines!

I've really enjoyed seeing your pictures of the area. Isn't it funny how we explore more, when there's someone fun to do it with?!
