On our way

June 7, 2013

The car is loaded full and we’re on our way. I’m actually blogging from the road, as we left at 5 am. Next stop: Virginia. We’re camping at Mount Rogers National Recreation Area until next week, then heading to Charlotte, NC for a few days (my first visit since we moved back to MI!), then the drag race in Bristol, TN.
See you when we return!

Camping in the Smoky Mountains

June 3, 2013

Our camping trip to the Great Smoky Mountains went great. Sure, it rained nearly every day and our campground was covered in poison ivy, which we all got a little of, but we all had a nice time simply enjoying the outdoors. Cosby campground was a nice place- quiet with very few RVs, clean bathrooms and easy access to a few nice hikes. Both girls really enjoyed the nearby creek and the nature trail in the campground which takes you over it numerous times, which was neat. Listening to it every night while falling asleep was nice, too, of course.

We also drove over to Cades Cove and Eleanore and Adelaide were able to see their first bear in the wild! It’s hard to see in my picture, but we saw a mama with her cub.

The views in Cade’s Cove were beautiful.

And of course we all enjoyed our meals while camping! There’s nothing like cooking over a campfire.

We have one more camping trip planned for the summer and it’s coming up quick! We leave Friday for Virginia. We’re camping in Mt. Rogers National Rec Area.
