One down....

Dave and I celebrated our third anniversary early by going to the mountains and staying at Unicoi State Park in a cottage. It was a really nice quiet weekend. As we drove through Helen on Saturday we were amazed by all of the people out for Oktoberfest Helen, Ga style, which seems to be "be as drunk and redneck as you can." We were glad to be in the park where it was nice and quiet. We cooked and watched movies on Dave's laptop. It was nice to be away from a phone, t.v. and internet for a couple of days. We also rode our bikes, hiked to Anna Ruby Falls and explored Unicoi, trying to find where Dave busted his knee many years ago. And we did. 

On our way home we stopped at a pumpkin patch. They were sold by the farmer himself and most were huge!!! We came home with 6 pumpkins. 4 pie pumpkins, and two plain ol' pretty orange ones. I really wanted a huge one. His prices were great, $12-45 for the huge ones! But we opted for more quantity over size. The pie pumpkins were just $2 a piece. You can't find that in Marietta! So, one thing checked off my list. Got the pumpkins. Who wants to share the next adventure?
I will try to post pictures of our pumpkin family soon! We have all shapes sizes and colors.

Sounds like a great weekend to me! I only visited Unicoi once and thought it was great. Wish I could visit the mountains. I am stuck over here in the flatlands.
