An Afternoon at Rutledge Falls

Last week, Prima Ballerina and I took Pita and AB to one of my favorite places - Rutledge Falls. It is a wonderful place. On private land but the owners are gracious enough to let people in.

[Sidebar: If anyone out there is wealthy enough and wants to run an inn, there is a beautiful old house just above the falls which would be perfect for a bed and breakfast!]

I was planning on taking lots of pics of the girls. They weren't in a posing mood so I got exactly 2.The doggie girls didn't want to pose either, more interested in playing! Yes, Juno (the black and white one) is still a puppy. Not a year old yet. She is going to be HUGE!!
The day ended with Aunt Woody having to get into that cold, cold, cold water up to her waist. Pita lost her stick in the water and jumped in to swim to get it. While swimming, she lost her shoe. So I got to go get them. Did I mention that water is COLD?

You may be the best Aunt ever!!!!! Love all the pictures that you were able to capture!
Trader Joes? I thought it would be much bigger, but I still enjoyed it. Great prices.

Nice pictures even if the kids wouldn't pose!

Really cold water would feel wonderful right about now...

It's gonna be hotter than hot for the next few days so I would love to be right there!

You are such a good aunt for getting her shoes.

What a fun spot! And what a good Auntie : ) Hope you're having a great weekend!

Your nieces are the luckiest ever! And those dogs know how to party too! Playing in water is the only way to go in this heat.

What? The girls didn't want to POSE? I hope they are feeling better soon:)

He he he... Sorry you had to get all cold & wet but you relayed the story so well, lol!

Kids seldom cooperate when you want to take pictures. However, the dogs seem to have been behaving.

Hi Woody, You know how much we love Rutledge Falls. I'll bet that water IS cold---even though it's hotter than hot here this weekend. Those girls are amazing... I cannot believe what they are doing on the back of that boat.... Goodness!!!!!

We're home from a great vacation.. I'll post in the morning.

Funny how kids are immune to the cold, isn't it? You are a good Auntie, for sure!

Beautiful place, sweet kids, lovely dogs. Looks like a great day out!

It's so great that you jumped in that ice cold water, I don't think I could have done that! You rock!

You are right, that puppy is going to be huge!
