Isn't she beautiful? It was built in 1909 and is the last covered bridge in SC.

They had fun & I'm thankful I didn't lose any fingers.

Go to as many friends as you want & tell them they've been "Boo-ed". Be sure to link back to my blog & don't forget to put your treat on your side bar so everyone will know.

Getting her medal - no flashes allowed....sorry it's so dark & fuzzy.
Afterward - still all smiles.
Ok - now for the explaination about the pictures. You may have read that my nice camera was "missing". We've since determined that it (along with our portable DVD player) were stolen from my car. I've learned a life lesson from all of this drama.....always lock your car doors - even in your own driveway. I'm way too trusting of people & try to believe the good. Well, that's changed & little & I'm learning to be more careful with our stuff.
We were all very upset that our property had been violated & I was extremely irritated that one of my favorite possessions (my camera) was taken....G was more upset that her favorite movie was in the dvd player at the time.
They say that when God closes a door (or opens one, so to speak) He opens a window. Once again He has supported us through this ordeal and as of yesterday...... I am the proud new owner of this:
I'm in love. Special thanks go out to my wonderful hubby, who on his birthday went out & helped me find this great camera. It is so much better than the one I had before and even came with an extra zoom lens. I can bearly keep myself inside washing clothes when all I want to do is go out and get to know my new friend.
That's about all for now. Hope your Monday is getting off to a good start.
Now, I really must go do laundry.

Awww....isn't he sweet?
Now, when I went upstairs to check on G, this is what I find:
I laughed & laughed, called Daddy up to see her & then did what any good blogging mom would do......got my camera.

If you've never checked out 4 Reluctant Entertainers head over now. She's celebrating her 2 year anniversary and has this great Fall giveaway going on.
They are a wonderful family that tries to help out those of us who stress about welcoming people into our homes. She's taught me that it's not the menu or the dishes that matter - just the fellowship.

The tasting room - yum.
The store - sorry for the blurriness - I was rushing around.
The end of a fun filled day. We'll definitely be back to explore all of the activities that we couldn't do in one day.

This was a beautiful little pond with the house in the background, it was a perfect spot to stop & have a picnic lunch (which we did).
The obligatory kid photos - aren't they cute?
They even have a mercantile & a creamery (ice cream shop) at the barn.
That's it from River Bend Farm. Come back tomorrow & we'll head to over to Biltmore Winery - otherwise known in our house as Mommy's favorite part.
