You cannot drive through southeast Tennessee and NOT stop in Lynchburg for a tour.

In Murfreesboro we stopped to see Marcie and she gave us a beginners lesson on her red hot Vespa

We will have to try a Vespa tour.This is fun to drive!

Our final stop this week was at Taos' FIRST BIRTHDAY party.
Wow! I cannot believe that both my babies are one.
Happy Birthday Taos Mitchell Egan ! ! !

I LOVE the National Parks!

Just got back from a fun week in the western US visiting the National parks with our friends, Ed and Susan.  We started at thre Grand Canyon and then toured around to Bryce and then Zion.  All were beautiful and quite unique in vistas, temperatures, crowds, elevation and personality.
I can't recommend them enough for family fun!
