This will probably be the FIRST of a THOUSAND posts about trips to "the cabin!" My parents recently bought a new cabin in Blue Ridge, GA - which is just about an hour and fifteen minutes from our house! Over the past few months we've been trying to get it "READY" so that we could actually stay the night... appliances, furniture, gas hooked up ... and a few live-in friends out from under the cap on the roof! WE DID IT ... still a few more things needed - but it was ready enough! The mountains of Blue Ridge are beautiful ... and we are thrilled for all of the memories that this little place will bring! We kicked off the weekend with a trip to the strawberry fields at Mercier Orchards! The boys HAD to jump up on the train ... that we hope to ride in a few weekends ... and the other pictures are the only pictures I snapped AT the cabin ... more coming!
The creek is just RIGHT down the hill ... can't wait to campout on the porch and listen to the rushing water!
Micah turned ONE on April 28th ... but had a fever and was cutting teeth - so we waited until the weekend to celebrate!
Here is Benjamin reading Micah the book he got for his birthday!
Here are the boys opening gifts ... isn't it great to have an older brother ... or BE the older brother!
Here's a family picture ...
ANOTHER favorite ... Benjamin helping Micah blow out his candle! (SIDE NOTE ... this just may possibly be my LAST homemade cake ... I'm giving up and would much rather buy a cute one ... it would be 110% worth it to me and less stressful!)
Micah getting his first bite of his cake...
Don't you love the green zebra stripe mouth!
ONE happy Birthday boy!
Micah can actually sound like a MONKEY -- "ee-ee-ah-ah" hince the reason we did a little Curious George party!
Micah is MUCH MUCH more quiet than Benjamin but can still communicate pretty well! Here are a few FACTS about this little guy that we love and adore:
FAVORITE FOOD: CANDY (fruits are second)
SLEEPS: 12 hours (at night)
NAPS: 2 (at 1-2 hours each)
WORDS: mama, dada, ni-ni = night-night, bye-bye, hi, ee-ee-ah-ah, mowa=more, du=done, ben-min=Benjamin, ta-da, baw=ball, and about 5 or so more!
