The minivans in the mountains.

The week between Christmas and New Year's, we had the chance to head up to North GA with some college friends - Scotty and Jadison - and their 3 boys to spend a few days in the mountains.

Now, the history here is that Scotty is one of the "Grand-Canyon-Go-Big-Or-Go-Home" buddies that Spencer had in college. Many old (and previously unknown to me) shared adventures were the topic of reminiscing conversations on this trip. And this picture right here pretty much sums up how life has changed and yet remained the same since those college days...


We spent time at Rock City, where I almost went into cardiac arrest multiple times as AK scrambled to the top of very large rocks in the blink of an eye over and over again.



We also spent time hiking at Cloudland Canyon, and before coming home we made our way to Lookout Mountain.










We were so grateful for this sweet time with old friends!
