Our First Official Family Vacation

This was our first official family vacation. Yes, we've traveled with Reilly before, but its usually been with a purpose. This weekend was Doug's birthday so I rented a cabin in Ellijay GA. The cabin was called the Tree House and with good reason. Just look at the view!

Friday night was spent relaxing - well at least for Doug and I. Reilly paced I think almost the entire night. He just couldn't get comfortable with all the strange sounds.

Saturday we went hiking to Amicolola Falls. Amicolola is the trail head for the Appalachian Trail. We hiked part of the way up to the falls and found this silly tree.....

Reilly had a blast running as far as the leash would let him go. Once we were down we took some pictures at the trail head( ok, I was VERY tired and look a mess)....

Oh here's a pic of Reilly who really thought that walking all the way to Maine, wasn't such a bad idea :)

On the way home we hit the apple orchards, but didn't stay long as there wasn't any shade to park Reilly in.

So we reluctantly came home yesterday. I am already trying to figure out when we can go back. Reilly sacked out as soon as we got home and didn't move the entire evening. He's bounced back today and is in fine form :).
