Back from Camping in the Mountains!
Hi guys! I've finally gotten caught up on all your blogs since I was away. We went camping in the mountains again and had such a good time. I mean, look at that waterfall! Gorgeous!
Here we are... me and hubby, Tom. He's crazy.
These beautiful flowers were growing up through the rocks at Bridal Veil Waterfalls. It was a 2 mile hike to the falls (and don't forget the 2 miles back!) Why did both ways seem like uphill? I'm so proud of me and Bonnie though that we actually hiked 4 miles and didn't poop out. Have I mentioned yet that my legs are still sore? :)
And we mustn't forget the snake. Why is it everytime we camp, there is a snake involved? And guess what lovely kind this is? None other than a copperhead. Oh joy.
Bonnie had so much fun at the falls and on the 4 mile hike. I'm really proud of her!
We had an educational weekend too. We counted this trip as a school field trip. We actually observed bats overhead in the evening at our campsite. That was way cool. Lightning bugs. Interesting looking mushrooms. Oh, and don't forget the snake! We also visited Ceasar's Head info center and looked at a huge map of the area that was 3-D. Plus they were kind enough to glass encased all types of roaches and bugs common to the area.... nasty.... but Bonnie liked it.
I'ved ordered tons of pictures from Shutterfly this morning so I should be posting some scrapbook layouts with those maybe sometime next week or as soon as the pics come in. I can't wait! I love scrapbooking and have run out of pics to use!
In other news....
I'm working on my mini album care of Cardz TV. I'll be posting pics of that soon. I adore mini albums!
Have a great day!!!!
