Christian and I just got back from a much-needed vacation. We spent 3 days at Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky, 4 days at Great Smoky Mountain National Park in Tennessee/North Carolina, and then a few days in Chapin, South Carolina visiting friends. We saw temps in the 80's - something we haven't experienced for 8 months! And everything was so lush. The leaves are just starting to pop here in Wisconsin but it was already summer in the south. I'm sure I'll post trip photos in the future, but for now we're just playing catch-up.
