What a Beautiful Day!

A day to remember indeed! First we went to Looking Glass Falls but weren't bold enough to make the trek with Abby in tow down to the bottom of the falls to the river. But we did go further down the river to where it was nice and shallow where Griffin could safely swim in the water and boy did he love it! Of course it was icy cold but he didn't mind a bit as he submerged his entire body into the water swimming around like a little minnow. He wasn't into getting his head wet because he didn't have his goggles, he never puts his head into water...not even the bathtub or shower without his goggles. But he did have a great time anyhow and I had a great time watching him. Abby got her feet wet and lapped up lots of cold water. Griffin's Uncle Charlie, whose birthday was today, got into the water with him and they both looked for shiny and glittery rocks.

It was a relaxing day all in all and I am so glad that we made the trip. It is one of my favorite places to go to as I have fond memories from my childhood of Pisgah National Forest. It was a bit of a trip but well worth it. It was nice and shady there and a nice break from the summer sun, although there were lots of cars along the road but we did manage to find a great parking space. Next time we go we are going to go to the fish hatchery where I think that Griffin will absolutely love to see all the little fishies!
