Jul 6, 2008 - Finally Home!

We arrived home yesterday from Nashville about 5:00 pm. We stopped in Asheville to eat supper, since the Putnam refrigerator was empty! The dogs were happy to see us, and the feeling was mutual! We had such a wonderful time, and hope you enjoyed seeing a glimpse of our vacation! It was tiring, but soooo worth it!
