On Saturday afternoon after Daddy's meeting was over, we all went to the "Bear Park" in Helen. We saw Brown Bears, Black Bears, Grizzly Bears, and even Cinnamon Bears." They gave us bread chunks and apples to feed them! We were so close to them (but just far enough away)! There was also a snake and reptile exhibit that Daddy and I enjoyed, but Mama seemed to prefer the bears..................!
After Mama and I had a fun day in Helen, we met up with Daddy and hiked up to Anna Ruby Falls, which is really beautiful!! It was so cool and nice up there, we didn't want to come down. The Falls were named after a little girl whose Daddy bought the land after the Civil War.
This weekend we went to one of the most fun places we have ever been...Helen, GA! It is in the North GA Mountains, and looks like a little German Alpine Village. We stayed at the lodge at Unicoi State Park, where Daddy had his meeting with people from UGA. Mama and I went out and explored the town on Friday! We started off the day with my first horse and buggy ride! The horse's name was Herschel (after a famous football player) and he is the only Clydesdale horse in Helen. We had lunch at "The Troll" restaurant (it is under a bridge overlooking the Chattahoochee river!) and went to a toy store and the "Hansel and Gretel" Candy Store - yum yum! We met a very nice man who owns a store where they sell jewelry, cool sunglasses, and other stuff. He made me a "rice necklace" - I picked the design, and he wrote my name on a piece of rice that floats inside the necklace :) That night, we ate dinner with Daddy and the other people at the meeting, and were entertained by the male acapella group from UGA, "The Accidentals" They were awesome!
