I know I have been silent for a few weeks now-and I really let all of August go by without much blogging about the family! Time this summer has just gotten away from me; and I wish I could slow it down to the pace January usually takes.
Anyways, things have been crazy around here.
We had our 6th wedding anniversary in May, then a ton of Birthdays in June, my work got super buy in July, and then August ushered in birthdays, vacations, and general fun chaos.
Two weeks ago we went on vacation to Bear Den campground off the Blue Ridge Parkway near Linville, NC (and super close to where I grew up). It was a BLAST camping with the boys. We had a "camping cabin" which was like a tool shed with beds and electricity; next time we go I will have to remember the electricity and bring the coffee maker, instead of having to drink instant. But in a way, that was super fun, because each morning Bill surprised me with a super awesome cup of hot coffee.
Trust me, there s nothing like sitting around a campfire, drinking coffee, and enjoying the sunrise over the mountains. It made me miss the mountains a bit, which was something I thought I'd never say when I got out of there as fast as I could 11 years ago.
Lots of other awesome things are going on, but for the sake of keeping it short, I will just leave you with a photo from out camping trip:
This is at Linville Falls; the kids were awesome troopers and hiked everywhere in the mountains with us.
