I am happy to report that the 4 loads of laundry, I mean John & the 3 kids, came home safely last evening from Georgia. They had a great time there (even without my running commentary.) Here they are with John's brother Dave & family:
John was able to partially realize a dream of his by hiking on part of the Appalachian Trail. Edward & Maria went along, too:
Maria liked the scenery:
And so did Edward:
They stopped for a photo shoot at one of the shelters along the trail:
The next day they saw Martin Luther King Jr.'s church:
Then they did some other stuff that they forgot to take pictures of, probably because Mrs. Griswold wasn't with them.
