happy birthday, dad!

in celebration of dad's birthday (today he's actually 60 years, 5 months, and 18 days) we spent a FUN and relaxing long weekend on the clinch river. we stayed at the clinch river house (featured last year in Southern Living) and spent our days fishing in the "backyard", lounging at the pavilion, and warming ourselves by one of the many fireplaces and in the hot tub. the highlight of the weekend was our guided fly fishing trip. our guides, jeff and jim, from clinch river guides were awesome and taught us a lot about casting and the art of fly fishing. more importantly, we all caught at least one fish!

thanks for having a birthday, dad! we had such a great weekend. and, i am already looking forward to my next opportunity to go fly fishing...i think i am hooked!
