We had a great trip to the Smoky Mountains two weeks ago! We stayed with friends and it saved us a ton of money! We had a fun time and great fellowship with some true followers of Christ. What a blessing!

We rock jumped, tubed down a river, cooked out several times, saw 4 bears (from a distance, praise the Lord), hiked, swung on a tire swing, viewed God’s creation with awe, and even went to Dollywood for a huge discounted price! It was so much fun and now we are glad to be┬áhome.

We’re back now and the good thing about our “pets” is that we do NOT have to feed them. They feed themselves. Our bats in our carport find a way to get their own food and are pretty independent!
