My Mom is staying at my sister’s house right now. My sister has Internet access, so I am just going to post some pictures. We have been away to Charleston, SC and Pigeon Forge, TN. The pictures that I post will come from that vacation.
While we were away, Veronica turned one. Where does the time go? Here she is opening a present before we left.
We went to Dollywood with some friends of ours, so yes, there are some extra children in the picture by the sign. We also ran into my brother and niece there and got a family shot in the parking lot at the end of the day.
Next we went onto Charleston. We got there just in time for a Solemn High Mass at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist. The boys were very excited that they were able to serve that evening. We just love it when there are a lot of priests and seminarians around.
We toured many places in Charleston including Ft. Sumter and the aquarium. We also spent a day at the beach and the children loved it. The boys would dig holes and Veronica would crawl over and get in them. There were loads of starfish and sand dollars. I had never seen any of those things on the beach in New Jersey.
Last, but certainly not least, we went back to Pigeon Forge so we could hike in the Smokey’s.
Hi Mom! We hope you enjoyed the pictures and we hope you are enjoying your stay. Send Aunt Gert our love.
