Mountain time!

Usually on Thursdays I participate in Thank You Very Much with Kmama at The Daily Dribbles, but this Thursday I've got nothing for you in that department!  Guess that's a good thing, huh?

Tuesday night my in-laws came in, bringing with them my husband's uncle and lady friend (LF)  from Copenhagen.  We spent a week with them last year in Denmark and had the time of our lives!  They were such good tour guides, and we hit the town running when we got there.  Husband's family had lost contact with uncle, but, if I'm not mistaken, someone got back in touch with him through Facebook.  BIL & his wife went to Cph for a couple of days a few weeks before we went.  Now they're here!  They landed in Atlanta, then went to my in-laws for a few days.  They stopped by on their way to see more of the Southeastern U.S.  The bad news is that we only had 1 day to show them the highlights of our area.  Not enough time at all.  It was hard deciding where to take them in just 1 day.  I knew uncle enjoys history, and there is something very secretive about a town not too far away from us. So, we spent the morning in the museum there, went to lunch, and then hit Party City!  LF was in awe!  I think she could've spent hours in there if we let her!  But, we had a big decision to make:  downtown in the big city, or the mountains.  LF made a decision and said mountains.  A lot of riding in the car, but I think it was worth it to them.  We saw over 20 deer, wild turkeys, and, to top it off,  they got to see their first black bear in its natural habitat!  (And, no, we did not get out of the car!)  As we were driving out, they also got to see a coyote.
Here's a picture of us in Denmark last year:
And in the U.S.A. yesterday:
It was so great to see them and to be able to spend the day with them!   I only wish we had had more time; there are so many other things I wanted to show them about our area, but they are on their way to DC to visit with BIL & SIL for a few days.  Guess it will have to wait for another time.  We hope to get back to Denmark soon....very soon!

  1. Oh I don't know how you chose what to show them in a day...there is so many wonderful things to see in your neck of the woods. I would have had a tough time picking and chosing...but the mountains are always a must. I love them.

  2. I love that they got to see the splendor of the mountains and all the beauty this area holds! And can I just say that I am jealous of the bear spotting! In my 12 years here and a bazillion trips to the mtns I have yet to see an actual black bear!

  4. You made the right call...cities are cities but the landscape is unique to an area. Sounds like a nice day...have a great weekend!
