First off, if you've never been to Grandfather Mountain you need to get your butt there as soon as possible. It's amazing and totally worth the drive (about 2 hrs from Asheville). Aside from the main attraction (the mountain and the swinging bridge - more on that to come), they have a great area full of wildlife habitats, sort of like a mini zoo. They had deer, otters, cougars, bears, and eagles. Adley loved the bears. She especially enjoyed the little bear cub statues in the museum :)
September is Histiocytosis Awareness month. These are two of the most inspiring people I've ever met, and two of the most amazing boys I've ever cared for. Spread awareness, give blood and please join the national bone marrow registry!
