Our Weekend in the Mountains

We spent the weekend in the NC mountains. It was our first time camping in our new (used) pop-up! It was great! It was definitely a few steps up from tent camping.....HOT water, refrigerator, and cable TV! The girls loved it and had so much fun just running around the campground. Lydia was thrilled because there were lots of rocks, sticks and dirt.
On Saturday, we took a short hike down to this waterfall....Elk River Falls!

On Sunday, we visited Grandfather Mountain. The girls did great there, especially after being lectured about the importance of holding hands to avoid a trip to the hospital.
The highlight of the weekend was on Saturday when we surprised the girls and took them to Autumn at Oz. Of course, they dressed up and got all involved. We met lots of characters (all of them were great and very interactive). We got to go inside Auntie Em and Uncle Henry's farmhouse, experience the tornado and stroll down the yellow brick road.
It was a fun and memorable weekend. To see more pictures from our trip, click here.
