Busy Bee

Another busy, busy week! I was in Orlando for the day for work, and it made me realize how quickly I forget (after living in Florida my entire life until I was 23) how much warmer it gets there in March compared to Atlanta. My birthday is at the end of this month, and we always went to the beach or did something outside. In Atlanta, there's still a chance it could be pretty cold on my birthday. Anyway, just my random musing for the day.

Everyone looks forward to the weekends, but they definitely have a new excitement now that Matt and I only get to spend Friday night through Sunday night (well, technically through 5 am Monday morning) together. This past weekend we took advantage of the 70 degree weather and drove up to the north Georgia mountains to do some camping and hiking at Vogel State Park. Georgia has amazing state park campgrounds, and Vogel is definitely one of our favorites. Matt's friend Zach and his girlfriend Ashley are our camping buddies, and in normal fashion, they joined in on the fun.

Here are some pictures from the Vogel Lookout on the Bear Hair Gap Trail.

It was the perfect weather for camping. So fun. And, in our preparations for camping, we went to the Georgia State Parks website and saw this funny little picture. Matt and I went to Vogel for the first time in October 2006 and hiked Bear Hair Gap. There was a very nice photographer at the lookout taking pictures for the website, and she asked if we'd be her models. We obliged, but we didn't even know the picture ever made it to the website! Hehe.

So, not that any of you probably care, but I'm sure the rest of the week is going to be busy (shocking, I know), so unless I get any genius ideas for a post or time at work to do it, I'll find something good to post about next week. :)

State park websites - you're famous :). I'm glad I'll be able to say I knew you when... It looks beautiful! I'm glad you had fun and can't wait for it to warm up here so we can get out and enjoy the mountains!
