Moon and Stars

Terrifying. Utterly and completely terrifying. Looking back I realize where the family conversation was going, but I wasn't paying any attention in the other room. Maybe I should have.

After awhile I got curious. I think curiosity just might be the death of me. So I walked right up to the kitchen table to see what the laughter was about. Then I saw it. A yellow watermelon. I think I almost had a heart attack. Pink/red watermelons have always been what we bought. I had always heard about the Moon And Star variety, but I never dreamed of eating one!

I closed my eyes for the first bite. I kept them closed the whole time I ate it. Peeking once made me scared again. They said it tasted slightly different, but I think I was too busy making it pink in my mind that I didn't notice.

It was very good, but I don't think I can handle another one.

Maybe I'm dramatic...

It Is Well

While we were camping, Grace Ann and I went into an old church and recorded It Is Well. Here is the song:

Primitive camping = no showers!

The annual Gibson/Hobson camping trip has happened yet again! Uncountable years of fun ever since I was a baby (or maybe before I was born, like I said, I basically don't know). Cades Cove has always been the preferred place of retreat, but we decided to get out of our 'set ways' and try a new campground in the Great Smokey Mtns. National Park. To everyone's tears and depression we had to cut the trip short 2 days :(. Sad, I know. But, ah well. We still had fun...bucket loads. Now. Since my motto is "a picture speaks a thousand words" I will start the slide show now:
