Chris and I got out for a stroll around the mountain yesterday. It was a gorgeous day up top. The sand myrtle was hanging on and the rhododendron is getting ready to show its brilliant display. We were talking about our future trip down the mountain, which is today. We are super excited to be hiking down to attend the nuptials of our own Courtney and Beau. They will be getting married on top of Max Patch. Chris is getting a little nervous, since they asked him to perform the wedding. Yes, thanks to the internet, he is licensed. Don't worry, I will be taking a lot of photos to share with you all.
On to the next story. I know you all saw the photo of Chris sending down his weed eater. You will be happy to know, it has been replaced with a professional model. He had to do a day hike down on Friday to get some supplies. While he was down he swung by the co-op and picked up his new toy. He had a lovely hike up the mountain, bonding with his new weed eater. It took him one morning to cover the same amount of camp as it would usually take three mornings. He was like a kid in a candy store. Men and their toys!
On our trip around the mountain, we stopped to check our little chicks. They are doing great. I am sure they will be out of the nest by the time Chris and I come back from days off. Maybe I will find another nest to watch when I get back.
I am super excited to be heading to down today. After the wedding, Chris and I will be flying to Arizona to meet our newest family members. My sister had triplets and I have not gotten to meet them yet. I can not wait to hold little Evie, Ruby, and Stevie. This is fun packed week down. I am sure I will need a rest when I return to work. In the meantime, Nathan will take good care of you. Happy hiking and see you in a week.
