Our ASheville NC trip... lots of photos!

Sunday, April 29, 2012

I wont bore you with commetation of this whole trip but let me just say i had so much fun!
Hiked everyday for 5 hours did 6 miles at least every day.. saw so mch.. these are even the tip of how many photos we actually took.. facebook has all the alums if you want to see them i am under Adewyn Le blanc :) i will add you as a friend just tell me you are a sparker :) so anyways... i have to say this trip was so nice for a few reasons. the obvious the views.. but for me it was a personal victory.... when i couldnt walk 4 years ago i never ever thought i would do a REAL hike again... now after all i have been thr to get back in shape.. strong... the difficult hikes were not bad.. the strenuous ones were moderate.. and i felt good! i took all my medicine took extra flexril at ight to relax the muscles... hubby took care of every meal... we stayed in a cabin with a little kitchen so we could save some money by not eating out every meal.. we did have sonic on the way out there .. dunkin coffee in the am on our way to the hikes.. and ate 2 breakfast meals out... other then that we had some good eatin thanks to hubby for letting me rest after the hikes :) i couldnt be more blessed... enjoy the pics!








































































































































and if you made it this far lol... you can tell we had fun... and i am continuing to get stronger and leaner and stay healthy so we ca do this again!!! hugs and love missed all of you!!

    Fab pictures! Thanks for sharing!
That bridge looks WAY cool.. You'd so expect one side to suddenly become unhinged - like they always do in the movies haha.
You two are the cutest, and I love your sneaky bicep shot hehe! x

    WOW!!! Great photos!!! Beautiful scenery!!! Anyone can tell you had a wonderful vacation. What a difference a few years can make!
You did some serious hiking and that tells you what great shape you are now in.
Will hope to see you sometime this summer! (Heading home from OH on Wed.)

    Fantastic pictures. Yes, you both look like you are truly having a great time. I love the area and the wonderful hikes. The waterfall pictures are great (not so sure about the snake pic though - LOL). Anyway, glad you had a great time. You look wonderful!

    reminds me of upstate New York, with the wooded hills. Its so flat here in MI. Pretty in the fall, but the rest of the year it is just flat.

You would think since being out in nature is so relaxing, and beautiful, we would spend more time outside. Somewhere along the way we think other things are more important. Looks like you had a blast, and I am happy for you.

    Some of those mountain ranges look so familiar! My family went to Chimney Rock Park twice when I was growing up, once as a young child and once when I was a late teen. It was so much fun! How great you got to spend so many days hiking!!

    That is great. Amazing all the things you give up as " impossible " so easily. Then you get mad, and say "I'm not dead yet " , and you surprise yourself with how much you can do. Luckily family doesn't pity you, they push you. Enjoy the hiking, and time with the family. I'm sure your husband is even happier, knowing that something you did before can still be done. It's not just the sick people who are affected, just in different ways.

Happy Hiking!

    WOW!!! Lots of excitement going on for you.
We will also be heading from FL to NC somewhere between the 20th and 22nd. Lots to do between now and then - company several days this week, taxes to do, and then clean and pack. Sister went back to PA yesterday. She had been here two months.
Are you driving home? It takes us 12 hrs. so we usually take 2 days since we are older. lol Wish we could put our truck on Amtrak and go that way.
Keep me posted on your exciting vacation, hiking, etc.

I will be heading home for a bit as of april 21st.... dad is gettng way to stressed out.. he is worrying that i need to be with my family... he has lived alone for 20 yrs and now has someone here lol.. (he needs 24/7 care)but if he can bitch about it he is fine lol...Dea is so sad i am head ing back.. but knows the minute he needs serioius 24/7 care i am here... he knows that too... and he knows i amnot abandoning him... he is glad/sad that i am going back to be with my hubby for a while... he has given me instructions in case he goes before i can get back.. of who has what kind of power and who doesnt....i need for him to drop the checking account paper off at the bank before i leave so i can make out checks if nessecary for him... he is already thinking a million things lol.. has has thanked me i cant tell you how much... and he says and when i am unable to tell you thank you.. please know i love you and thank you for everything you have done.. will do and will do when you come back... he says i know i dont deserve any of this especially from any of my children but i appreciate everything... not many would give up everything and come down here and do what you have done and will do...
So with teary eyes.. i will be heading back to NC Aprl 21st (hubby thinks i am coming in the 22nd i have cancelled my gym down here and reinstated mine up there.. Man i will miss the gym down here they know how to get it done lol!!!

but...just means i have to get my butt in gear and get certified and teach NC how it is really done lol ...


so last ting i haveto do is figure out how to cancel the internet on the 22nd and ake sure i can reinstate it when i come back down so i have something for me to yell threw lol.....


so he pretty much just sit around all day... he is gonna realize how much Dea is gonna have to do know.. and hopefully the talks of getting help in here for him will resume now...


So.... just wanted to update all of you :/ You gyes are the bestest

    Cool. Not sure whether the scenic route, or those cool sunglasses emoticon are better. emoticon

I love bridges and rivers. Hopefully you saw some wildlife. We have no green trees here yet. The other day I saw the last brown leaves falling out of a tree as I was walking. Like a shower. Amazed me. Our winter was so mild, the dead leaves never fell off. Hoping with sun and 60's next week, after a few days of rain( Sat/Sun ), that we can see some tree buds soon. Birds are returning. When I went to Walgreen's, Geese come up to 2 feet away and stare at you.. we had 40 in the parking lot the other day. They probably thought " Stupid humans, don't they know they are supposed to feed us!" You can pet them, and they just slowly walk away. If you feed them though, you have a pet for about 100-200 feet..lol

I'm guessing you have more pics, and hope you can get them to upload later. I need to get a camera that I can figure out how to use.
