Day two

Mike and I got up really early, and went to town to go shopping for ties and shirts, and to get haircuts, the lady cutting Mike's hair was a beauty queen from my high school days, so I surprised her when I said didn't you used to be Miss Sweet Potato.  I think Mike got a trip at the small town humor and the diffrences between WalMart in a small town, and a big city.  We made it back home to get the truck loaded down with Sherry and mom's suitcase, and made it on the road by 1:00.  I drove the 6 hours up there, it was kind of like "The Amazing Race",  we hit that rush hour traffic at 5 in Atlanta, Mike was a wreck, he'd never seen traffic like that.  I was a little tense myself since I was driving.  We made it through the crazy traffic, and up to Helen where we stayed.  Mike and I made it too the key and the map first, so we left a copy of the map, and a note saying we got the key and was going to go ahead and make it to the cabin.  Unfortunately we got lost, and passed our turn, so we showed up a hour or so later, where we found Mama, Sherry, Lance, and Autumn waiting paitiently.  We were then informed that some of the women in my family had to do a bear in the woods experience.  So watch your step if you take a walk in the woods.  I think Autumn was just trying to be just like Sherry.  Yes the bride to be had to take one in the woods, which we all had big laughs about later.  We walked in to our beautiful cabin, and our breath was just taken away.  Our view was spectacular.  We went to the grocery store and ate well.  We all stayed up late talking and enjoying the scenery.
