Passing Down Crazy

Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn

Tacky Tourists


Let me just tell you that we loved Gatlinburg.  We did lots of touristy stuff like indoor sky diving, go-karting, a wax museum, and Hillbilly mini golf.  We rode a tram up a mountain and golfed down.

The Shenandoah Valley was so gorgeous.  Here’s the view from the pool (while I was doing 4 loads of laundry).

We drove through Shenandoah National Park.  It’s a road along the top of the mountain ridge.  There are scenic overlooks off of both sides of the mountain.  Our destination was Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson.

It’s hard to even fathom it being built on top of a small mountain over 200 years ago.

Now we’re here.

My Eyelet Cardi is finished but not blocked.  There will be photos next week.  I’m sitting in the shade working on Trevi today while My Hero works.  The kids are riding bike and hanging out as well.

See you at home!!!  We should be there late tomorrow night!
