I hope everyone is enjoying the Championship as much as I am! I don't think I sat down the entire game! Some people say it was a boring game (non Alabama fans), but I think it was a GREAT game! 14 is my favorite number! :)
Anyway Thursday Josh and I left for Maggie Valley, North Carolina for a family vacation with my mom, step-dad, step brother, Morgan, and Jason. The ride was long and kind of spooky, like Deliverance spooky. There is nothing but fields for miles and miles! After a couple of hours we came to the Ocoee. During the summer this placed is packed with people White Water Rafting. However, when it's 14 degrees the place is a ghostown. As we drove along the Ocoee I took pictures of the beautiful landscape.
We arrived in Maggie Valley after 6 and half hours in the car, getting lost, and being flicked off by a lovely North Carolinian. The house had a beautiful view.
Friday morning the family got up and got ready to head toward the slopes. It was a balmy 14 degrees and the resort was blowing "man made" snow everywhere. I am not a good skier, in fact I hate it. I am a beach bunny, not a ski bunny. You need no skill to be at the beach, however skiing is a different story. I couldn't make it to the bunny slope without falling! Argh! I told Josh to leave me with the other 9 year olds and go and ski where he wanted to. After 2 hours and 200 falls later I was still trying to conquer the bunny slope. Besides being sore I was soaking wet from the man made snow that was being pumped in everyone's faces.
So after Josh begged me for an hour to please try going down the beginners slope I caved and told him I would, but not to get frustrated with me. Well guess what? I fell coming off the ski lift, major sign this wasn't going to go well. After skiing/falling down half the slope I threw my ski poles down and decided I was done! Josh's fingers were blue and he was frustrated as well. So he decided he was done also. I told him to go ahead and ski down the slope and I would walk the rest of the way down. Yes I walked down the slope with my poles in one hand and my skis in the other! Right then and there Josh and I decided that the Fryers are NOT ski people! We spent the rest of the afternoon trying to thaw out and enjoying hot coca!
Besides not mastering skiing Josh and I had a great time with my family. We are a little loud and silly. There were many laughs and lots of stories that we will tell for years to come. Let's just say the next family trip will be somewhere warmer! :)

If you have never been, go! I reccomend the chili dogs, french fries, and an Orange Dreamsicle. Ahhhh
We checked into our room and by now Josh is antsy and ready to go (See below).
This is his "quit taking pictures and get ready so we can go" face.
We headed down to the Georgia Dome so we could check out the FanFest. It was loud and organge and blue as far as the eye could see. I asked Josh did he want to hang around and watch Tiger Walk? Dumb question, OF COURSE HE DID! So we waited in line for 2 hours (another plugg for Wife of the Year) to witness the Tiger Walk. Of course when you are waiting around for something to start you begin to talk to people, and it was revealed that I was an Alabama fan. So of course I get the usual "Bammer" jokes and I smile and take it, knowing deep down that I will get the last laugh (Hee Hee).
I think Josh enjoyed the games especially since Auburn won, and I survived. Here's the only picture I got of Josh and me.
I look forward to what 2012 bring the Fryers. 2011 was a pretty good year, so I can't wait to see if 2012 can top it! Until next time....
