Visit from Son and Daughter-in-law

Jeff and Dawn Wilhite, 6/7/14 at Cumberland Mountain State Park
George and I were blessed on Saturday (6/7/14)  to have a visit from my youngest son, Jeff, and his beautiful wife, Dawn.  They live in North Georgia ---and you'd think we would get to see each other more often.  BUT--they stay so busy and so do we... SO--when we do get to spend some time together,  it's magical and wonderful!!!!!  That was true for this MAMA on Saturday!!!!  Thanks,  Jeff and Dawn for coming!

Today I 'll share some photos from our time with them.  We took them to Cumberland Mountain State Park for lunch/dinner and then took some time to walk around the area and get some pictures (of course)... ha..  Hope you enjoy seeing more from our fantastic day!!!!  Click on the photos for enlargements.


Reflections on the lake at Cumberland Mountain State Park



Standing on the fishing pier at Cumberland  Mountain State Park



There are MANY Canada Geese at the state park.


Love taking photos of the bridge when you can get these reflections!



A great day to be Kayaking!!



George on the fishing pier



Another photo of the bridge (and reflections)



Jeff and Dawn at the fishing pier (They were wishing that they had brought their fishing poles since they LOVE to fish!!!)



I'll close with two more photos of the bridge and reflections.. These may be the best REFLECTION-type pictures I have ever taken!!!!  What do you think?  Can you see where the water is??? It obviously was very calm on this day...


Hope you enjoyed seeing more of our 'adventures' today!!!!  It was truly fantastic spending a day with some of the family...   Next Sunday (Father's Day),  we have been invited to go to Nashville to spend some time with George's daughter and hubby... That will be PERFECT for him on Father's Day!!!!

Hugs,

Those pictures are awesome. I've never taken a reflections picture like that. I'm sure looking forward to son time in August. We'll actually park in their drive way for a week. Nothing warms a mother's heart more.

Betsy, Family visits are always great... Like yours, their relatively rare because of everyones busy schedule. We've been to the Cumberland Mountain State Park a few times...usually tied to a visit to the Cumberland County Playhouse. Love the chicken on the buffet in the Park's restaurant. That bridge is a true classic! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

Hi Betsy, i am sure it is heaven for a mother to be visited by her children. They look great and really literally big people! The water in your lake is so tranquil and serene and that bridge photo with reflection is terribly awesome. I love to fish too, but it's not easy here!

LV said...

So nice when families get together and enjoy each other. You and George are blessed in so many ways with family, beauty, but most of all love. I am doing fine, except nearly lost my mind over my computer. I THINK the issues have been resolved.

Betsy
so wonderful you got to spend time with your son and DIL!
The park is lovely. the stone bridge looks like it stepped out of an old English movie.

Dee said...

Dear Betsy, those last two bridge-reflection photographs are fantastic. Have you considered contacting a company that makes jigsaw puzzles?
One of those photographs would make a truly wonderful puzzle to put together. Peace.

Grandma Bonnie said...

What gorgeous reflection photos! You son and his wife make a great couple. Its always nice when we get a visit from one of our sons so I know how you must feel.

Very nice photos. I love the reflections !

Rose said...

It is hard not getting to see our children as often as we wish...it makes it all the more special when you do. Can't imagine it without texting and computers, etc.

I love your bridge reflections...
