Great trip!! So, for the first post I will share some pictures of our trip to Helen, Georgia. A fun little town, great food at the Country Barbeque, shopping galore ~~ yep, we had fun. And, it all happened, thanks to Les' DILs who were our trip partners.
As we drove northeast from Cumming, we began to see the mountains. Since I live in such flat country, this was a welcome sight.
Soon we came to Helen, a little German village, right in the midst of North Georgia mountains. Helen was a sleepy little town that people passed through on their way to bigger and better things so in 1969 some businessmen got the idea on how to draw in the tourist trade. Their idea grew into a charming little town where crowds congregate to have fun, eat, shop and enjoy themselves.
I love the colorfully decorated buildings, some 'omp-pa-pa' music going in the background and a sweet hug.
How beautiful is this!
More beautiful flowers!

Or perhaps, Jam?

I loved this display of cute little green frogs. I didn't buy one!

We were in Georgia for a week. Going to Helen was just one of the days. More to come!
I missed you guys!
