Catawba Cultural Center

Fun day yesterday.  I had Charlie and Adam, and we, along with my friend Kirkie and four of her grandchildren, headed out to check out the Catawba Cultural Center.  It was just a small museum – a couple of rooms – but their pottery is amazing.  The lady working there said they had gotten their […]

Hungry Mother State Park

This past weekend was the annual cousins campout with Uncle Zollie.  Unfortunately, Adam was the only one who was able to go, but we still had a wonderful time.  In years gone by we had been at Grayson Highlands, where Olivia was working, but this year we went to Hungry Mother, since that’s where she’s […]

Animal Encounter

Definitely one of the highlights of our zoo visit was when Jeni brought animals in for us to spend time with, up close and personal.  This kinkajou was my personal favorite of the evening. I was less excited about the snake, but it actually lived in a cage in the room where we were sleeping, […]

More Zoo Pix from Saturday

The red panda was one of my favorites that we saw that day.  She had just had cubs, and hadn’t brought them out of the den yet, so the zookeeper thought we might not see her at all – but then she did come and pay us a quick visit.  So cute. One of our […]
