camping...



the kids had a fall break from school this week and since it was my husband's birthday we decided to camping for a few days. we stayed right next to a beautiful lake, on top of a mountain in north georgia. it was truly amazing, especially the leaves which have only just started changing here in atlanta. the weather was perfect, and the rain held off until the last day when we had to pack up and leave ealier than intended. there were many other kids camping and the kids instantly made new friends. i don't have that much camping experience so i was quite proud of myself cooking over an open fire... i made lentil soup and a delicious apple slump from the apples we picked the week before. we fished, but didn't catch anything. we hiked around the lake, went for a late night walk with glow sticks and generally had a lot of fun. i think we are all looking forward to it again...












seriously, who couldn't get used to this kind of life?!
