Weekend in the Mountains

A few weeks ago, we took a trip to Bear Den campground for a weekend camping trip with our friends, the Flynns. The first night there it rained cats and dogs!!! The rest of the weekend was gorgeous and so was the scenery.
On the way home, David and I took the girls to the Linville Gorge and Wiseman's View.

This is the very spot where David proposed to me thirteen years ago!!!


Here are all the kids gathered around the table in the camper on the first night of camping. Originally, the dads were going to sleep in the tent and the moms and kids were going to sleep in the camper. Well with all the rain and a soaked tent, we quickly found out that our pop-up camper could accommodate 4 adults and 5 children!!!

Our campsite.


On the Blue Ridge Parkway.......beautiful!!!


On Saturday, we ventured out to Mystery Hill. The kids enjoyed it. Here's Madeline in a bubble!


The girls on an old tractor. Check out Lydia's headpiece. She found this Indian headpiece and spear and was running around the gift shop, chanting her Indian "Ah-wah-wah-wah".
Of course, we bought it for her!

Back at camp. This is one excited bunch....waiting for the campfire to get started.


Margo LOVED the campfire!
