Garet and Suzi - look how pretty the trees are!

I was feeling a little Martha Stewartish, and I made a fall wreath. I know it isn't "officially" fall yet (I think it starts tomorrow), but I was just in the mood to get it started this weekend. I went out and bought some fall flowers and candles to put around the house. I have been wanting to start hanging wreaths, but with the little space we have between our front door and storm door I didn't know if I would be able to. Garet had the bright idea to make our own. I thought he was out of his mind, but really it wasn't too hard. I am definitely a summer girl, but I am actually ready for the cooler weather to get here!

Anyway - I took a lot of pictures while I was out there, mainly just of the horses :) you can click here if you want to see those. Garet came out and I put him to work on Saturday - he got to muck stalls, get hay, brush down the horses, fill water buckets, and many other fun barn stuff! I think he had a good time!
The weather was BEAUTIFUL on Saturday! Sunday it was pretty gross, it rained most of the day. It is really nice being out there because it is so relaxing! They have a great piece of land, there is even a creek that runs along the back edge of the property. I just love hanging out with the horses! Here is a picture of Traveler - he is the one that I normally ride when I'm out there.

Suzi turns 3 today! When Garet and I got home yesterday afternoon, we discovered a gift for Suzi on our front porch. It was a present from Riley! (our neighbors dog) How cute is that?! As you can see from the pictures, she LOVES it! She even slept with it last night.

This afternoon was the first game of the season. We had to go out to watch it, because they don't broadcast those games on cable (unless Carolina is playing Tennessee or something). It is so odd to be here where no one knows what you are talking about when you say that your team is the Panthers. Everyone here is either Alabama or Auburn - and you must be one of those. Garet and I are still undecided :) But that is seriously the first thing people ask you here, "Alabama or Auburn?" Anyway, it was great to watch the game - and they won!! GO PANTHERS!

Of course, I had to do one of Garet's shots since I was in the front...
About half way down Garet and I "pulled over" and ate lunch. While we were sitting there we heard a big splash - and it was a baby deer! I tried to get my camera out to get a picture, and this was the best I got...
This was at the end, we were the first ones down.
We had a lot of fun! There were a few small rapids (which were tons of fun!), but overall it was an easy, relaxing trip. We met a couple guys and their sons that went down with us. One of the dad's and his son flipped out of their canoe! I don't think the little boy was very happy, but at least they cooled off! The weather was hot, but we were in the shade for the most part. It was great!
