SO--what did we do to celebrate?????? WELL---we did something we had never done on Valentine's Day before: we went to a local Mexican Restaurant near us here and had Fajitas for TWO. Even though it wasn't 'fancy' --and we didn't dress up for a special occasion, the food was GREAT. We both enjoyed it ---and after getting home, we enjoyed cuddling on the sofa by the fireplace --watching the snow come down (and being happy we were HOME).
Adult children may not always realize how special it is for a parent to hear from them. This Mama CRIED with so much love and joy inside of herself. Mark and Debbie will NEVER know how much this gesture of love means to me....
Well Friends---as you can tell, even though it wasn't what we first expected, we did have a wonderful weekend... As my Facebook friends tell me, just being with George is enough for me!!!!!! SO TRUE..
God Bless You ---and remember to keep the LOVE going all year long.

|The Birthday Boy (born 3/9/42) --Photo taken on 2/13/15, at Greenbriar in the Smokies|
I will share some pictures I took of George during our Valentine's Trip to the Smoky Mountains on Feb. 12-13. Please click on the photos for enlargements.
|The first place we stopped on 2/12 was the Foothills Parkway. The photographer was busy taking a picture of the little bit of blue sky we saw on that trip!|
|The wind was COLD up there on that mountain on 2/12, along the Foothills Parkway. George seldom gets cold --but it was definitely VERY COLD that day, even to him.|
|We did get a little snow as we drove along Little River Road (toward Gatlinburg). We walked down the hill to check out Mannis Branch Falls. I like this picture of George (on 2/12) on his knee getting the perfect picture.|
|My Sweetie will climb all around the rocks and boulders to get some good pictures. This picture was taken on 2/13 at Greenbriar in the Smokies.|
|Photo taken at Greenbriar in the Smokies on 2/13/15; I LOVE LOVE LOVE this picture of my Sweetie.|
|Us on a COLD COLD day in the Smokies (photo taken on 2/12/15)|
Have a great week, my Friends. Be sure and wish George a Happy Birthday!!!!

|George in front of some of the massive ICICLES at OLD MAN'S CAVE at Hocking Hills, 3/10/14|
BUT--my goal was for George to get to see water coming over the 8 waterfalls in that area which we saw... (We had been to Hocking Hills twice before and loved the area --but when we were there, there was VERY little water coming over the falls.) We did accomplish that goal --plus much more!!!!
Today and Monday, I will share with you some birthday photos of my Cutie Pie, and also a few of the many photos we took while there this week. Be sure to click on the photos to see enlargements.
|George standing in front of the huge ice mound at the bottom of ASH CAVE FALLS, 3/10/14|
|The trails were TOTAL ICE at Old Man's Cave (looks like snow --but it was all-ice) --and dangerous! (Snow would have been alot prettier --and not nearly as dangerous... Oh Well!)|
Our weather when we were there this week was AWESOME --and quite warm, despite all of the ice still down in the gorges and shady areas at the state park.
|The next day (3/11/14) --when we visited CONKLES HOLLOW|
|One of George's awesome waterfall photos at CONKLES HOLLOW|
|George inside the cave at ROCK HOUSE, Hocking Hills State Park, 3/11/14|
|George's birthday cake this year was a Strawberry Cream Cheese Cake (YUM)|
|A happy man getting ready to make a WISH!!!!|
|And he HUFFED and he PUFFED ---and managed to blow out all 72 candles!!!! (What a Guy!)|
|Cards are always special on birthdays. This one was from his sister!|
|And this one was from his 'bride'.....|
|Us at Lower Falls at OLD MAN'S CAVE (3/10/14)|
All in all, it was a fabulous trip --and one we will be talking about FOREVER. I wanted it to be a great 'waterfall' trip for George for his birthday --and that definitely happened...
Hope you had a wonderful week. I'll share more photos from his adventure on Monday. Have a fantastic weekend.
