At church in Hendersonville

...but what we got was nasty, cold rain! We get enough of that in Birmingham!!! We had all prayed, literally prayed, for snow for that trip. It got us rain, hovering around the 40-degree tempeture mark! Miserable!

We dragged everyone out of bed and to church in Hendersonville. Its was your typical Southern Baptist church...the preacher was big and loud, the choir sung old hymns, and the little old ushers all stood outside in the lobby the entire service talking old-men-gossip. Funny.

After church we took everyone to Grandma and Grandpa Just's house to meet them and the aunts and uncles. She of course fed us cookies! Cousin Brenden decided to hang out with us for the afternoon too! Brenden fits right in with our group!

For lunch we went back to the cabin.

In the afternoon, we decided to set out and try to find Jump Off Rock in Hendersonville. After consulting several maps, we figured out how to get there! We loaded up in Blue #6, but were not very hopeful about the landscape, as it was raining and foggy. We wound up and up the mountain and right as we got to the top, we were above all the mist and fog! The valley below looked really cool with the clouds and mist lifting. We caught glimpses of the valley through the clouds. It was like we were floating on top of the mountain.

Jump Off Rock is special for me and Scott beacuse the first time he took me to Hendersonville, we visited and got great pics there and then we went back on our honeymoon. We had not been back since our honeymoon 6 years earlier (thus the difficulty in finding the park!) We took our obligatory pictures and everyone explored the rock. We manageed to keep Jon and Aaron from falling off the mountain.
