Kian, i noticed the old guy right away. I love to look in the background of pictures and see what people are doing...it's always funny
This week is actually "Peak Week" for the leaves...but with the weather being so crazy, windy one day, pouring rain the next, freezing cold, then warm again...we didn't want to chance missing it..so we went a week early. There were still full, beautiful colors everywhere...if you can imagine, they get even more vibrant than that! Last year we went at Peak Week and it was quite a show.
I know airfare is terrible!! It's waaay too expensive. The OH and I were looking at flights to Vegas but they are all ridiculous. So, that plan is put on indefinite hold.
The girls LOVE to come in the house. We can't keep them out! We keep the doors open in Fall and Spring and even some parts of Summer, it makes the house smell so fresh. Unfortunately, they DO occasionally leave "presents". YUCK! But, for the most part, they are pretty good about not doing their business on the floors.
I hope you do finally make it out this way...hopefully close to Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg...
as, you know who, will be living there
