Sunday Snapshot: N. GA Mtns!

Today, we decided to take a day trip up to Blue Ridge GA to grab some apples and such at the apple orchard, but on the way, we stopped at Poole's Bar B Q in Ellijay, GA. They have all of these "pig tombstones"  everywhere...LOL and so I took the above picture. We have lived in GA for 20 years and we've never stopped to eat here. My oldest said, "I have always wanted to eat here." We love to stop at 'hometown' spots instead of the food chains...this was an awesome BBQ pork sandwich I have evah had and I have had a few BBQ sandwiches in my day. So, if you are ever in the Ellijay area and you see pig tombstones at a yellow restaurant you might want to stop there. (and they didn't pay me to say that)...

We went on to Blue ridge, checked out the lake (which has already been drained really low for the fall)...checked out the downtown area and headed to Mercier's Orchard.

Here's the fam, posing in front of the fishing pond at Mercier's. I was there too, but always behind the camera! LOL
                                                       Shek posing on the Tractor in the store.

We grabbed some apples, several fried apple pies to go, 2 apple slushes for the kids to share and the last 2 mini apple fritters they hoo...I wanted a huge one all to myself...but I guess I didn't need that!LOL

We came on home cause the oldest had to go to church band practice and of course my hubby had to be here to watch the Auburn game....which is now in overtime as I type. What excitement in my house with all these WAR EAGLE fans. I went to Mississippi State...and the house was divided last weekend when they played each other...Lol

Tomorrow night the shared list comes out. Our agency said we should be logged in by the time this list comes out, so there's a chance that we too could be matched this time.  There's lots of nervous excitement in my house and it's not ALL about college

Blessings to all!

Ni Hao Y'all
