I mentioned before that both dogs love their oversized, squeaky tennis ball. We had a total of three, one for each dog and then a back up ball. Well, Tucker decided that he wanted to destroy two of the balls so he no longer gets to play with them. We recently got another squeaky ball and a huge, hard, indestructible ball for Tucker. It's indestructible if you give it to any other dog besides Tucker. We really thought that it would last for quite awhile but in about 10-15 minutes, it was destroyed. He has been banned from tennis balls for now. Sometimes I think he destroys them because he knows how much Sadie loves the squeaky balls. He's probablly laughing inside the entire time he's eating the ball.

Yesterday we made it to Helen for Oktoberfest. It was a beautiful drive and on the way we stopped at the site where the 1996 Summer Olympics Whitewater Slalom competition was held. In the pictures, the water looks normal but I'm sure it gets pretty wild.
We got to Helen around noon and had lunch and walked around. It is definitely a neat place to visit and I think we may try to go back next year and spend some more time there. Unfortunately, a lot of the places to stay were booked. We'll have to plan better for next year. There were a lot of cute little shops and different places to eat. We went to one place called The Troll Tavern to have a drink. It was a restaurant under a bridge near a creek. Definitely a great name for this place. I just thought that was the neatest thing. We spent a few hours in Helen and then we headed back home. Here are a few pictures we took of our day.

I decided to have some fun by decorating for Halloween and it came out kinda dorky. Doesn't matter though. It's all in fun. I wouldn't mind displaying more of a graveyard scene but I think that'll have to wait until next year. I'm going to have to buy some more stuff when it goes on sale soon.

Eric and I are going to try and get over to Helen, Georgia this month for Oktoberfest. Apparently, this is a huge thing there and lasts all month. We tried to get a hotel and they are all completely booked! We'll have to do better planning next year. I guess we're going to drive over on Saturday and stay the day and then just come home that evening. It should be a lot of fun.
Here in Chattanooga, they have something at Rock City called Rocktoberfest. It's every Saturday and Sunday of this month. I think we may try and check that out too.
We haven't really been doing much around here. Things have kind of slowed down since we moved into the house. Right now the only thing that needs some attention is our office. I think I may paint and then buy a bookshelf and get organized. The closet in here is a disaster! It's similar to a closet that you would see on TV. Someone opens it and piles and piles of junk coming falling out. It definitely needs a clean sweep. Hopefully, it will all be done very, very soon.
