Southern Tour

Paige's blog has been quiet lately, not because she has been idle, but rather because her whole family has been BUSY BUSY BUSY! We took a trip to Asheville NC, Beaufort SC, and Savannah GA at the end of Sept. We stayed with friends in Asheville, took a hike in the woods, ate terrific Southern cookin, and generally relaxed. Paige tried to make friends with the cat, but the cat was not ready to make friends with her. In Beaufort, we watched proudly as Paige's cousin graduated from Marine basic training. In Savannah, Paige rode the trolley with us, toured some old mansions, and spent some quality time with Grandma Joy and Grandpa Joe (while mom & dad went on a dinner date!). Paige enjoyed the view from the top of Tybee Lighthouse (thanks to me carrying her up in the Ergo backpack), however, the wind was a bit stiff! She was overall a very good traveler, managing to sleep on both flights and even get through most nights in strange places fairly smoothly.
