|This summer I spent 7 weeks in the US with Casey and his family and had a wonderful time :)|
|This is my new family :)|
We got to spend a weekend together in Gatlinburg (playing Settlers of Catan!)
It's kind of like Carcassonne, but not, but lots of fun anyways :)
|I got to go all sorts of places with Casey.|
This was at the Tellico river.
No, I did not kayak.
|We also got together with friends :)|
|This is at Cades Cove.|
On certain mornings they allow only bike traffic until 10 am, so we got to bike around in peace and quiet and enjoy the mist and all the animals.
|These deer weren't scared at all|
|This little bitty mother bear had three even littler cubs running around with her. |
They were fun to watch.
|We also got to travel up to Maryland and spend a week with dear family there.|
Mom and the other sisters had flown over too.
