Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone! Actually, Happy Easter Monday!

Hopefully everyone got their fill of chocolate bunnies and jelly beans this weekend.

The Kienows had a different take on Easter this year.

After Mom & Dad arrived on Thursday, and Amy on Friday, we decided to be local tourists - we ran errands on my day off (not that exciting, I know), we went to Atlanta Motor Speedway for a track tour, went out to some of our favorite restaurants around our house, cooked up a few delicious dinners, and then headed up to the Smoky Mountains.

We spent Saturday sightseeing in Dahlonega, touring wineries through the mountains, drinking (a bit), and laughing at our own crazy selves.

After checking in to the Amicalola State Park Lodge for the night, we awoke the next morning for an Easter breakfast overlooking the mountains, and then to a 749-ft waterfall - Amicalola Falls is one of the most spectacular sights I have ever seen. Mom even walked the 0.3 mile (one-way) stretch to get the best vantage point of the falls - but it was so worth it!

We enjoyed the rest of the day driving back to our house, and then spending time on the deck and listening to the birds.

So, although we did not have any Easter eggs this year nor the traditional Easter ham...it was one of my most favorite holidays in memory!

Stay tuned for photos which I will try to post this weekend (when I return...from Hawaii...that's a whole other story!).
