The Moose and I took a short hiatus from typical life and headed to Ellijay, GA to spend a long weekend with family. Family travelled from Wisconsin to join us, Matt, Steve, Dort and Samantha and we along with my Mom, Padre', Daughters #1 and #2, and Kevin had a great time! Just couldn’t get enough of that little girl, Sammie!
We spent some time at the Amicalola Falls, the highest falls in the Southeastern US. Daughters #1, #2, Padre’ and Kevin (daughter #2’s other half), climbed the 425 steps to reach the top. The rest of us chose to drive up the 25% grade road and view it from the top, without all the effort.

On our way back, we stopped off at a huge pumpkin patch. It was amazing at the number of pumpkins!
On our final day together we headed over to an apple festival, picked apples, watched a pig race and the best part of the day was watching Sammie in the petting zoo. Every kid should pet a goat once in their life. She was a girl after my own heart, she was most amazed with the chickens!
