One of my favorite things about where we live is the easy access to the Blue Ridge Parkway and the beautiful fall colors.
We pulled off the parkway at Waterrock Knob to play and have a picnic lunch.
The girls had fun running around (and posing for pictures) while the boys unloaded the van.

After lunch, Ellie and Hannah played in the fog-- I have no idea what game they were playing, but they were completely entertained.
They ran, and ran, and ran, and then picked flowers (weeds!), and ran some more!

It's been so nice having my sister and her sweet family live closer to us so that we can get together more often!

The fog started to lift and we were able to see the colors just starting to change down in the valleys.
The highest point on the parkway at the Richland Balsam Overlook.
While the adults enjoyed the views, the highlight of the drive for the kids was driving through all of the tunnels!
