Lame-O

I have an announcement, Worth and I are lame. There it is, it is out there. I know, I know, you have trying to tell us this for years, but we have just now come to that realization. As I told you on the last post, we went to Franklin to see about Worth getting laser vision correction. Well this is a beautiful area folks and we were going to go see some water falls after his appointment. Pretty much as soon as we get on our way we realize we forgot the camera. Isn't this always the way. Pretty much the rest of the day followed suit of things just not working out. The doctor's office told us it would take about 2 hours for Worth to get his exam. In the meantime I had found a nice little park and greenway on the internet that BellaRose and I would go to while we waited. Well we get to the office and they tell us that it will only take 40 minutes. So we drop off Big Daddy and we try to find this park. I mean how hard can it be, we are only in this small town of Franklin. Of course in this small town all the roads are one way and they all seem to be the wrong way for me. I finally find the park, put BellaRose in the swing, and Worth calls me, and not sounding to happy at that! Head back to the office and he informs me that the doctor is NOT in!!! We just drove and hour and a half for the doctor to not be in. They say he does not have to be there for Worth to get approved to be a canidate for this lasik, but he is having other issues of seeing double and the doctor would need to check that out. We have another appointment in 4 weeks and will be heading back to Franklin, hopefully with the camera in tow. Well this did not end out misadventures. We headed towards Highlands, NC after lunch in hopes of seeing Dry Falls and being able to walk behind this gorgeous waterfall, nope not going to happen. It was CLOSED! How do you close down a waterfall? Well they did, closed, do not pass go. Okay we will try again, lets go see Bridal Veil Falls no again. We are officially sent to jail! I did pull over and take a picture of this other waterfall with my cell phone, but of course my cell phone says the file is too big to send to my e-mail. How is that even possible on a cell phone? So the only picture I have of the day is the one of BellaRose playing on the trunk of my car b/c we finally had to get her out of the car because she had been in it for hours and this was the only thing I could think to do. The one highlight of my trip was getting ice cream at Kilwins in Highlands. The best ice cream, ever! I know big statement, but so true.




Well we can't say the whole day was a total loss. We got BellaRose's swing up given to us by Big Poppa and T-Love (Worth's parents). Here is the progression of the swing going up from right to left (I know it is backwards, but hey so was the day). At times B-Rosey was more interested in eating acorns than the swing, but once we got her in it she loved it!


It feels so cool to pull up to our house now and see this sweet little swing in the tree right next to her two rose bushes that were given to her when she was born. We are officially a kid house. I love it! I know I have said this before, but I never thought I would love this gig so much, but it is awesome. I can't wait to go swinging with her, even if I am not actually the person in the swing. Next to come, a Sand Box!

Sorry about your day in Franklin. Ice cream always makes it better! But I bet it was a good family day anyways. Our best adventures growing up were driving around....

KatieKate said...

Oh no you're getting my disease...everything going wrong...hmmm have you been thinking that I was lame all this time ;-)

That sucks though. Have to say though that you might have missed the "best ice cream ever!"...if it hadn't been for the lame-o day!

so this might sound silly but I always love your photos, I stalk them, and for some reason I love the swing one...sounds dumb right, just a swing but you have talent because I love the angle, color everything on it and I know, it's just a swing...anywhoo, keep the photos coming because they're wonderful.
