We are so grateful to have such kind and generous friends here in NC that are always welcoming us into whatever they do. This past weekend our friends headed up into the mountains of North Carolina, near Blowing Rock, and asked us to tag along. I've always loved being outdoors, getting fresh air and exercise, but never have been much of a mountain gal. However, after this weekend, I am sure that this is a place I can't wait to go back to. It was SO incredibly beautiful, peaceful and relaxing - even with 7 kids in all.
We started the day with a beautiful hike around a lake that all the kids navigated perfectly. It was a bit rough and muddy, but everyone made it just fine. Afterwards we headed back to their cabin, located in 7 Devils, which was breathtaking. The view, the colors, the silence - it was magical. The kids and adults had lots of laughs, good food and drink. We are so lucky to have enjoyed such a great day.
