A perfect place to finish his book for his book report

Hannah's is almost as big as her!!

My fisherman!

Jakey boy!!
Alex caught the biggest one!!

I think this weekend we finally figured out how to take a RELAXING vacation with the kids! First you take a short drive from Georgia to Tennessee. Next you go up and over a mountain, then to the top of another mountain, to a little place called Fredonia or as we call it "THE MIDDLE OF FREAKIN NO WHERE!!" Where there is no CABLE TV, no CELL PHONE SERVICE and no INTERNET ACCESS! I have to tell you I was just a little bit worried about not having ANY of these comforts. But it ended up being just what the doctor ordered. Brian's Blackberry wasn't going off and my fingers got a break from text messaging....
All we did was fish, play games with our kids and fish some more. Hannah and I found a napping spot out by the water, the boys made catfish traps with their daddy and we all got to take a breath and relax. As I'm looking at these pictures I'm realizing this is going to be one of those trips my kids will never forget....I know I never will!!
