A Weekend in Blue Ridge

We are still recovering from Carson’s stay. And by recovering I mean going through withdrawals. More kids = more fun. It’s a fact. The house didn’t exactly get cleaned. The laundry absolutely did not get finished but that’s not what life is about, amirite? We had a darn good time. And now Mandie and Creighton have gone home too. Thank goodness for preschool or I fear my kids would be feeling a bit lonely. Patch and Maddy certainly thrive when they are surrounded by kids and noise and activity.

Anyway, we are still compiling our pictures of last weekend but I wanted to share a few snapshots from the weekend before last.  After soccer practice on Saturday morning Meme, Papa, the kids and I headed up to the cabin. Toby was playing a church retreat that weekend so I only saw him for about 10 seconds that morning. He woke up and whispered, “I just realized I have no idea if they have a drumset at the camp.” I laughed and rolled over. I’m a nice person but not that nice. Disassemble a drumset and load it into the back of a car at 4:30 in the morning? I would do anything for love, but I won’t do that.

We had gorgeous weather all weekend. I love watching what the kids do with all the space to roam.  They ran. A lot. And Maddy randomly would walk into the woods and declare it was time to take a hike. They love spending time outdoors and enjoy every moment they share with Meme and Papa.
She just adores him, can you tell?

Checking out the turtle by the pond in the outfit Uncle Jonathan got her for her birthday

Running, running and more running.

Love Maddy's arm punch in this one.

Running to see the Beefalo (It really is beefalo and not buffalo.)

A quiet moment at the top of the hill

Yes. More running.
